I have not. I also would not. I've heard horror stories about Mexico procedures as well as the gastric sleeve in general.

    I had mine done in the states. An acquaintance of mine had hers done in Mexico and experienced complications.

    I do have a friend who had it done in Mexico and has not had any complications from the surgery itself. Side effects, yes but not any complications. She used Dr. Green and the Oasis Hospital in Tijuana. I would love Cancun more so for the shorter flight but Cancun is not the mecca that Tijuana is for this surgery.

    Thank you. I kinda thought I would get a lot of negativity from the Dis, (been here a while, lol) but I haven't.

    You need to take care of you the best way possible and this isn't an easy decision to make. It's so much more than most people know and it's permanent . No turning back. Honestly, I haven't run into anyone that has been negative about my choice but I am sure it's out there. Just hold your head high and surround yourself with support when/if you find someone not so supportive. <3

    Well with my case a lot of people are like, really? I have a BMI of 31 and that is on the lower end. My insurance will not pay one thing with me having that BMI, hence Mexico.

    I've seen some in my support group that in my eyes don't look unhealthy. BUT I've learned that just because you aren't the size of two people doesn't mean you don't need this for yourself. This is a tool. Not a cure all. We can screw it up just like anything else. You know yourself and know you need this tool so major props to you for pushing for it!! You should be proud of yourself.

    Ya, I have to make some major life changes. My addiction to health needs to replace that of Disney. I am going to give it my all.
