  • Surgeon: Dr. Almanza
I loved my whole experience with the Almanza staff. They are all kind, courteous and well trained. The hotel we stayed in was top class. WE were picked up in a black limousine from the airport and treated like royalty. My surgery went smooth and I honestly had no pain. I had pain pills but never felt the need to take even one. I met some wonderful people there for their sleeve and will stay in touch with my new friends for life. We are planning a 1 year re-union in South Beach in Fla on 7/22/14.
I absolutely love my new tummy, I get hungry at regular mealtimes but I am satisfied with about 3 Table spoons of food. I get an unmistakable signal from my tummy when it has enough. I always stop eating at this signal. I have lost 28 pds in 4 weeks with no effort or starving. I am very good at drinking my 64 oz of water daily to prevent constipation, I make sure to get 2 scoops of "INJURY" unflavored protein every day(I put mine in OJ juice in am and in mashed pot) for lunch and dinner. I top the mashed potatoes with homemade crock pot beef chuck or crock pot chicken thighs w/ mushroom soup cooked 6 hours.I can not taste the protein or tell it is there. I also love Blueberry KEFIR and the KIRKLAND calcium chews 3 X a day. They settle any nausea and are a delicious treat. I take the best of care of my new sleeve, I give myself B-12 shots every week to prevent hair loss and take the Adult gummies vitimins. The sleeve is the best thing I have ever done for my health! My feet no longer hurt since my recent weight loss. I look forward to buying stylish clothes soon. My goal is to lose 100 pds in 6-8 months.
I know it will be possible with my sleeve. I am very happy and well fed!

Thank you, Dr Almanza for saving me from the nightmare of a Prison that I could not escape from alone.
I strongly recommend the great Doctor Almanza for your life change. He has a highly organized success plan for your surgery and as his motto over his clinic in Tijuana Mexico reads,
"We answer to a Higher Calling"

God be with you through your surgery as he was with me!
