This has been a life changing experience for sure. It began with a google search on weight loss surgeons because my insurance wouldn’t cover this procedure.
It wasn’t an easy decision to make. I spoke with about 8 folks who had it done in Mexico. I emailed about 10 additional people. Everyone w...read more.
Would I do it again? Yes I would. Once I decided that I had to do something and P90X wasn’t cutting it for me, the cost of the surgery in the USA was just too expensive, the choice was easy. I was able to make payments and had the procedure paid for in no time. I scheduled the trip, flew to San...read more.
I was unable to have bariatric surgery in the U.S. because my health insurance would not cover it & could not afford to pay cash for it myself. I began the medical insurance process 5 years ago at age 35. I worked it from every avenue I could for over a year, but to no avail. I gave up for a while...read more.

Hi, I'm Darlene. I have always been a prisoner to my weight issues. Every fad diet out there had to be tried...the egg diet, the cabbage soup diet, atkins, weight watchers, blah, blah, blah. Yes, I'd lose...and then I'd gain and gain. At my surgery date, I was the heaviest I had ever been - 240 ...read more.
I would do it all over again in a HEART BEAT. This is my fifth month anniversary of my surgery. So far I have lost 79lbs and 67 inches. I have not been at this weight in 20 years. I am thankful for making the decision for surgery. I only wish I had done it sooner. I’m still on my weight loss j...read more.
I have to say I was skeptical to be traveling to an area of the world that I did not even speak the language.
