Starting weight 335, lost some with weight loss agents recommendations of liquid diet 14 days before surgery. My weight at surgery was 315 lb. My current weight is 211 lb!! I stayed on the recommended diet of liquid for two weeks after surgery then went to full liquids for 2 more weeks. Had to Google what other doctors were recommending for future diet as I hadn't been given any other recommendations after the first 4 weeks. Stayed at 700 to 800 calories for approximately 6 to 8 months. I get in a few more calories now, but continue to lose. Although slower. I felt my surgery in Mexico was well worth it. I did have a little culture shock driving in but other than that I knew basically what I was headed into. I could never have afforded this surgery in the United States!(my insurance EXCLUDES anything bariatric), so having surgery that I could afford that is so life changing was great!! I'll have to figure out how to upload a picture , I'm not very tech savey. I wonder if they do skin removal surgery to? Lol, that's what I'll need next.
