    I went to Dr Almanza in Mexico for weight loss surgery and it was the best decision of my life! They have complications here in the US the same as in Mexico. Did these people follow their pre-op diet? Did they stop drinking and taking certain meds? It's THOUSANDS of us that has been to Dr Almanza and had no issues at all. My insurance would not cover my surgery and it was affordable in Mexico.

    High healthcare costs, sugar-laden and generally unhealthy foods saturating the food market, and unrealistic social engineering that favors being insanely thin to "normal" sized will do that to you. Many "ethnic" groups don't have to worry about such insanity since most Western countries' beauty standards appeal to white people which is why you see the vast majority of white people engaging in such ridiculous pursuits.

I am not saying don't be careful but let me tell you an American Doctor screwed my sister lap band surgery and she had all these problems.. They are actually discontinuing this surgery for most part and are stearing away from it. American Doctors screw up on daily basis but lets not put that in the news.

    I don’t know who did those surgeries or where they were done, but I’m Mexican and have had the surgeries (as many of friends and family members) and everyone is more than okay. Just because a couple of Americans had bad experiences during the Bariatrics surgeries, doesn’t mean we have bad surgeons.
    You have to do research on the doctor and the hospital the surgery is going to take place at.

    They’re not Mexico bashing, they literally have said nothing bad about Mexicans. They are just telling their stories which happened in Mexico. Horrifying things happened to them and people they know because of the surgery. It’s just a fact that it happened in Mexico.They have a right to tell their story. By your reasoning, no one should tell their story if it’s bad and happened to Mexico because it “makes Mexico look bad.”
    And obviously this is not every case in Mexico, and they never said it was. It’s you all who are jumping to conclusions and getting upset.

    It's Mexico, a good Mexican doctor can immigrate to the US and make a hundred times more money than he can in Mexico. Thats what good smart doctors do and that's why the only doctors left to practice in Mexico are mostly the bottom of the barrel. I have Mexicans friends that wouldn't have surgery in Mexico, enough said.

    I was born in Mexico City and I would never get any type of surgery in Mexico or any other country ! 3 years ago I had gastric surgery here in the United States it took me over a year to get approved to be ready physically and mentally and I can’t thank enough my doctors , support groups before and after my surgery. All I have to say is: people do your homework! This is your health and insurance does cover this type of surgery! I have maintain the same weight for over 2 years and people have to understand this surgery is not a magic pill this surgery is a tool and you have to know how to use it and change your eating habits and one of the most important things to be mentally ready. Best of luck to anyone who is trying to get this surgery, it will change your life for the better but please do your homework! If this helps in any way I had my surgery at northwestern memorial hospital and I don’t have any regrets! Thanks!

    I'm the first to admit I'm an a**hole,having said that..From where I'm sitting,it's hard for me to feel sorry for these people,and this isn't a bash Mexico thing but let's just be real here,Any country that's advertising 1/3 the cost is probably giving 1/3 the care and quality,obviously they were giving 1/3 the pain management because America has that girl now hooked on opiods.. :/ I've always believed that when you shop for a bargain,be prepared to get just what you paid for..That's not to say that you can't get lucky or that there aren't success stories but when it comes to cutting me open,I'd rather try a payment plan here in the states or seek a better insurance plan,fight my insurance company,meanwhile I'd be dieting and doing whatever exercise my body permitted and most likely once I win approval for surgery,I won't need it.. ;) See what I did just then..? ;) And I'm not talking about the bs diets and fads that are out,I'm talking very simple lifestyle changes that don't involve complete deprivation..Just giving up sodas can bring about a significant weight loss and not only that but you'll actually start to "feel" better as opposed to just looking different because many health conditions commonly related to obesity follow you or can catch you even with surgery..Being mindful of sugar intake and just being more active can not only shed pounds but can help you dodge the diabetes bullet..It's possible to do it on your own..If that isn't an option for you then keep in mind this is your life at stake and probably not something you should be looking for a coupon for..

    A good friend of mine did just what these people did. Their stories are eerily similar My friend had it just over a year ago, and she needs a reversal and subsequent surgeries to repair the damage. She is literally dying, she can't eat and is SCARY thin now. If she doesn't get these surgeries, she will be dead within the year. I am going to post her GoFundMe here, bc she doesn't have the insurance or financial income to get it on her own. I don't want her to die, I don't want her children without a mother.

    440,000 Americans die each year in the US due to preventable medical harm, making it the 3rd leading cause of death in the United States with no accountability. I'm so sorry these patients suffered such horrific complications and harm, but their risk would be just as dangerous had they had surgery in the US. Over 643,000 Americans file bankruptcy each year due to medical bills. Have surgery in the US, you risk your life, financial ruin or both!

  • jellyfishattack
    jellyfishattack ヶ月 前

    Gastric/Lap bands don't work and need replacement about every 7 years. Please do your research! Many lap banders can't sleep on their left side. Roux en Y gastric bypasses and gastric sleeves work if you exercise and follow your diet post-op. The Canadian gov't only pays for the latter two, since the band fails all the time. I had a Roux en Y 4 years ago, lost 180lbs, kept it off, and am now 165lbs (I have prob. 20+ pounds that could be removed with lifts, and a tummy tuck but those ops hurt and cost $45,000 CAN, so I'm okay waiting), but I'm thrilled. It's no magic bullet though, you're restricted to a 1200 calorie diet for life, and no junk food/crap forever, and I swim, dive, walk, and play hockey in the winter. Just say no to 2nd/3rd world operations.

    Oh my goodness, this is so sad. I know only too well the desperation of not losing weight. I had been on a permanent ''restrictive diet'' for three years and had not lost anything, in fact kept was frustrating and soul destroying knowing I was doing everything right. I gave myself a year last Christmas to get results or I would get gastric band surgery. I went to a therapist to help me with issues regarding my childhood traumas, and healed those hurts, and finally accepted myself as I am. The by- product was, I started losing weight! This gave me the confidence to continue on my journey and I learned important tools to use: 1. Get your gut health right- use very good quality pro-biotics. 2. Drink loads of water to flush toxins as you are slimming ( make it your favorite drink. Avoid all processed sugar) 3. Regular exercise that you love to do. 4. Listen to positive affirmations everyday to keep motivated. 5. Become self aware with your body and mind...the new body will follow, I promise! I have now shed 26kgs (57.3 pounds) since March 2018, still got a little to go, however I am enjoying every minute of the process. I no longer need to go ahead with weight loss surgery and feel more in control of my life than ever before. I hope my words here today will inspire someone who was in my position to take that leap of faith and take the reins of their life and create the life they want- IT IS POSSIBLE! :)

None of them were so large that they needed weight loss surgery in the first place. I know several people around their size or larger, and with a new diet and exercise they lost alot of weight. It wasnt easy, but they succeded. Its to bad they have to deal with these results for maybe a lifetime. Tough lesson to learn. When they charge so little, that should tell you something. Dont do it.

    In my opinion, every surgery can have implications, doesn't matter where it's done. You just need to do a deep research about your options and don't rely on what people say.


    I had a hysterectomy here in Arizona a few years ago. They used 3 surgical sponges during the surgery and sent me home with 1 of them where my ovary was! I nearly died from the infections it caused! Stop blaming Mexico!!!! There are plenty of incompetent Dotors right here in the USA! I wouldn't trust alot of the doctors in America because of the low academic standards we have compared to other countries! They probably cheat on the exams!!!! I have dealt with too many arrogant and racist so called doctors in the United States! I have found the most intelligent ones are from Asia or India and that's the truth.
