As just a housewife in Dallas,Tx I didnt think my life could get any better.
In 2009 I had a back surgery that put me in bed for 3 years. I counld not walk very well much less exercise, so I gained weight as I stayed in bed and ate whatever I wanted. At one point when I would have to get out of the house, I would have to use a walker or go to places that had buggies for me to push and hang on to.
I got up to 296lbs over the course of those 3 years. Thats was very bad on my back and put me into a deep depression.
One day a friends called me and told me about her vistit to Mexico and the St. Jerusalem Hospital. She said it was safe,very clean and the greatest experience she had ever had. I decided to go to their website that day. After looking at their website, I contacted them and was helped by a very professionsl staff member. I had an appoint for gastric sleeve surgery within four weeks. My payments where made easy with online payments.
I decided to keep a journal from the time I left Dallas on Friday June 29th 2012 and write in it all about my trip, surgery and weight loss. By the time the St. Jerusalem van picked up all the other ladies and myself from the airport, we were all ready becoming fast friends. Way not, we were all in the same boat. It was great to have the support of other ladies going through the same thing I was. We were all there because of different life style reasons and chooses we made in the past, but now we all had the same goal.
The Doctors and staff at the hospital and recovery house all went above and beyond their call of duty. Even seven months after my surgery they still call and text me to see how I am doing.
I have been so happy to report to them that I have lost 101 pound in 7 months. I also have gone from size 28 to size 16. Thats six size!!! Now walking, running, dancing, and even shopping have been such a new joy in my life that I have'nt been able to do for a very long time.
To this day, I still keep in touch with the ladies from my trip to St. Jerusalem Hospital. They are all just as happy as I am. Each one of us would do it all over again in a heart beat.
Contact the loving staff at and you will be glad you did. It's the best decision I ever made.

Thank you,
Dana Foster
Dallas, Tx.
