Just like anyone else that is skeptical about this journey, I was too at first. my husband was not supportive at all in the beginning when I told him I was going to Mexico to have this weight loss surgery, He knows when I make my mind up, I am going to do it, so he gave in & went along with me. I am very glad that he did, he was able to witness first hand the good care I was given & the cleanliness of the facility (this was his main concern) The people there are GREAT!, they take very good care of you, I cannot stress enough how pleased I am with my surgery & Dr Almanza and his staff. Yes, the facility is a little shocking when you drive up and see that its in a strip mall, so what, It was immaculant, and they have everything they need to preform the surgery and do it safely. no bells and whistles, just the basics. For anyone second guessing their decision to do this - D-O-N-T... I wished I would have done it MUCH sooner. I was 221 pounds before surgery, and I currently weigh 141 pounds. I am 5'3" tall. I have my life back, more energy, no more hiding in the house and afraid of getting out & people seeing me with all of the weight on, I am proud of my results, and I plan on never looking back at the old me. It has been 2 years and 3 months since my surgery & I have been quite happy with my results. My husband is proud as well & does not regret making that trip with me. You would not believe the self confidence that you get after the weight starts coming off. Youw ill not regret this I PROMISE you! I sure hope this helps you in making your decision, please do not hesitate to contact me on I will be glad to give specifics if you want more information on my journey.
