5 weeks ago I went down to Jerusalem Hospital to get the Lab Band surgery. After listening to other girls experiences (from 9 girls 5 already did the lap band and they were doing now the sleeve), they convinced me to switch for the Gastric Sleeve, and so far, I'm not regreating doing it.

The Gastric Sleeve, it is so far, the best Gastric surgery ever, I lost 40 lbs. and I keep losing and it is amazing.

Every single person at the hospital and the agents online, on the phone, texting, are extremely wonderful. Profesionals and really they all take care of you and keep track of your progress.

The doctors at Jerusalem Hospital are amazing, every single one, the nurses, I loved them all in 2 days I was there. I'm very happy and greatful with such a great team and people.

YOU GUYS ARE THE BEST!!! Thank you very much for everything.

Dr. Mario Almanza is the #1 doctor in the world and after the surgery, I re-afirm that he is the #1, he is amazing and super good. Highly recommended.

Gastric sleeve has changed my life and also eating habits, but if you are going to do it, you have to be commited for life for this change. The doctors are not magicians, they help us big time to do change our lives and bodies, but we still have to work on our eating habits and be ready and concious that this is a change for life. Are you ready for the challenge?? Go see Dr. Almanza and all the team in Tijuana, it is the best place in the world.

Thank you to all of you guys for everything, thank you for helping me to change my life and for saving me from die young.

God Bless you all!!
