Hi everyone! Newbie here. Been researching WLS in Mexico. I like what I've seen so far from Dr Illan. I have two questions:
Thanks in advance for your replies!!
I had surgery with Dr. Illan in December of 2014. He is a fine, respectable surgery who cares about his patients. There were ZERO extra costs to me. I don't remember what they gave me for pain, but a pain pump in Mexico is probably very rare, and totally unnecessary for a sleeve gastrectomy. I was looked after every minute of the day - taken out to walk, taken out to eat and shop, reminded to do my breathing exercises, fed very well (special vegetarian meals), etc. The only extra money I paid was to dine out and a tip for the coordinator, and the shopping that I did.
Did you end up getting your surgery with Dr. Illan? I am doing research and wanted to hear some reviews. I also wanted to see, if you got it done, how soon were you able to schedule an appointment. I have been going through the process here for a little over a year and my insurance does not cover WLS and its too expensive here. I am jusr so ready. My hubby is wary about out of country surgery so I need to do a lot of research to convince him. Anything you could tell me if you went there would be greatly appreciated.
Hi, I wonder if you've done your surgery with Dr. lllan? i am looking to book surgery with him too
