I can't lie that I was not nervous and scared, but I was made to feel at ease. I was able to have my surgery a day earlier than planned. I think that was good because it was one less day to worry. I feel good, and have lost 12 lbs. but that is not the most important part. That will be when I can go to my doctor and quit taking most if not all of my medicines. The Hotel Ticuan is lovely, and my only suggestion is to eventually make the surgery center on one of the floors of the Hotel. That way everything can be done in one lovely place. The staff was very caring, and the Drs. were awesome. Speaking with Dr. Bettancourt was uplifting and I will continue to remember him and his colleagues and staff in prayer always. He is helping many people to have a better life. God bless.
