Just wanted to wish you the best on your surgery. I am a Dr. A success story. I hope your experience is as wonderful as mine was.
I believe the leak test differs (open versus lap). Dr. A does open RNY.

I went to Ensenada also, and it was a good experience for me. I had the gastric byputt done with laparoscopy. My surgeon showed me the video and he did a leak test using a blue die. He said it should always be done during surgery. I did not have any drains and I was aloud to drink water the next morning, released from the hospital the second day and was home by day 4 with only 5 tiny scars and no pain!!!
I am sure you will do just fine, laparoscopy is a blessing. I am down 112 lbs.
Welcome to the journey!
