its easy to get the ball rolling, but unless you do self pay in mexico theres no way you will get a surg date that fast, sorry to be the bearer of bad news. the wait times in winnipeg are 2-5 years i hear. i went to edmonton as my bmi was to high for winnipeg, it took 2 years from referal to surg. but i hear those wait times have gone done , so that may be an option. i had to go to edmonton 6 or 7 times, and it cost me and my hubby nearly 1000 each trip, NOT including airfare, the airfare will be reimbursed by mb health. honestly if i knew then what i know now, i wouldnt have waited 2 years, save a grand or so and gone to mexico, that way i could have picked my own surg date, and its fast, just a matter of weeks tioll you get in. if thats something that appeals to you, or even just strikes up a bit of curiousity for you, there are lots of awesome ladies on here who went the mexico route and are doing great! my hubby is thinking of getting the sleeve done in mexico this xmas...
best of luck! you will make the right desicion for your self, dont worry!
