CosMed - After the Surgery

Caribou ME
on 11/16/12 6:19 am - Caribou, ME

I would like to hear from someone that has had surgery at CosMed.  Specifically after the surgery did you stay in the recovery hotel or did you stay in a nearby hotel?  I was thinking of staying in the recovery hotel for two nights and then going to a hotel since the hotels are half the cost.  Is two nights in the recovery hotel enough?  I will be traveling alone.  Also how long did you stay in Tijuana before flying home?

Thank you.

I went to Dr Sauceda in Monterrey Mexico.  It was an all-inclusive price.  I was at the clinic with 24/7 care for a week and a week at the Hampton Inn, seen daily by Dr Sauceda's nurse Paty, and Dr S would stop by in the evenings.

It was an all-inclusive price you got?  I have an estimate for the surgery and a separate estimate for the anesthesia.  I was told the clinics 24/7 care is a separate charge.  Plus I will need to get my lab work done here two weeks before leaving for Mexico.  How did you get one price for everything?  Will I save money if I demand the same?

I didn't use CosMed.  I went to Dr Sauceda in Monterrey Mexico.  He isn't affiliated with CosMed.

They sent me the estimate for the surgery and a separate estimate for the anesthesia too.  I was told the clinics 24/7 care is a separate charge and when I asked what is was they replied with the cost of getting the labs there.  (I told them twice I knew I was paying for labs and air.)  They also said I pay for food and meds while there and didn't give me any ideal when, where or how much.

I planned to call Monday and request a January date.  Now I'm not so sure.  I'm thinking I need to check out some more surgeons.  What are you going to do?

I'm going to check out others too.  When I met him in person and had the consult I liked him and what he had sot say.  But, I don't want to be dumped after surgery with no after care.  Not feeling confident with responses to date.

If  you don't mind I'd love to know what surgeons you check out.  It would be great to get some input.  I'm all alone here.  No one to help me out.
