This is the best decision of my life, I am from Houston Texas, 54 years old and when I left my weight was 176#,I work in the food industry so is very difficult to stay away from food, when I reached 50, my weight started to get out of control, making my life depressing, when I heard about the gastric sleeve I said to myself this is the right surgery for me, I did some research and make my decision, I was so exited to get my surgery, my experience started when I get to San Diego Airport, A limo picked me and my daughter up and drove us to TJ, I had my blood work done and the next day my surgery was done, the staff is incredible, their customer service is the best, and the hospital is very, very clean!! I was the first one to get the surgery, I woke up about 45 min later, then they send me to another part of the clinic where I spend the night with three other patients, they just keep checking on us all night, the next day they drove us to the hotel, Hotel Ticuan, a four star hotel, very nice and their staff very honest and very good customer service, the hospital have staff 24/7 and they check on you every couple of hours or so, overall my experience was very positive, of course you are going to feel sick, you just got part of your stomach cut off and five cuts on your belly, I had nausea and pain, but it will go away, it just been two weeks and I lost 13#, once I reach my goal I can start taking more calories to maintain my weight. I gladly recommend this hospital, Dr. Almanza and his staff, also I want to let everybody know, that going to Tijuana is very safe, I never feel like my daughter and myself were in danger, we were shopping around souvenirs to bring back to Houston, I even had the strength to get my eyebrows tattooed, one again I had a blast!!!
