I am allready dieting ( i did not eat unhealthy before i started dieting but now i am on a strictct diet counting calories make sure i drink lots of water taking vitamins) and over eating is not my problem. i dunno i guess i just want this roll to be gone so i wont be in pain so i can work out.
Wow! Sounds like Mom needs some education in surgery in Mexico. I've done it twice. ;o) Once for a band (big mistake) and once for a revision to a sleeve. Now, I live here. Dr. Aceves and Dr. Arellano did my surgeries and today I work for Dr. Arellano. So a little education goes a very long way with medical tourism.
I do cannot suggest Alvarez but for DS - while my surgeon does DS I still suggest people go to Ungson. For a sleeve, Arellano. All the experience of Aceves for far less money. (They did all surgeries together, many many thousands of WLS) and great stats.
Just because you have surgery in the US does not mean you are gettting a good surgeon and hospital and just because you go to MX does not mean a bad surgeon or hospital.
My blog shows how to research MX and US surgeons. Just do it, you'll be shocked at the difference, you get your life back.
