Anyone gone to Mexico?

on 10/12/17 12:36 pm

Hi there,

I am really interested in bariatric surgery (specifically VSG) and I would love to speak to someone who has gone to Mexico. I don't have a family doctor so I'm concerned about finding one that would support me, especially with post-op care. I'd also love to hear about people's general experiences with Mexico, good or bad.

Has anyone had the surgery in Mexico? What about finding a doctor at home that supported you?
