Hi! I had my gastric sleeve done on Aug 9/17 in Tijuana BC Mexico! Yes I still have that quick little feeling in my stomach when I say Tijuana but you know what?? It was awesome! Hospital and Hotel were awesome and the Drs and nursing staff at both places were great! I felt safe at all times. My brother came with me for support and we walked around a lot and never felt unsafe. My only disappointment was that they were suppose to take us shopping on Friday at 3pm but no one showed up. It was very disappointing for us and our group. My brother and I did walk to a mall of sorts ourselves but I'm sure it was not the same and it took a lot out of me. But all in all. I wish I had had this operation years ago! I am 10 days post-op and have lost 20lbs. I feel extremely energetic. I go today to have stitches removed and my family checkup on the 29th. My only regret is not being able to have some of the authentic Mexican food but my brother did and said it was to die for!!! Super friendly people. Some spoke some English but they tried as hard as we did. I just need to get use to not finishing what I order. Even a simply iced tea. I could only have a tiny bit but my brother finished it off for me! lol! The TJ BARIATRIC staff was so organized and friendly (minus the shopping trip!
