    Try losing weight the old fashion proven way. Get off you rear and exercise more and stop over stuffing your pie hole. Some insurance will pay for weight loss treatments if your BMI is over a certain amount. Weight loss is not always a cosmetic issue, it can be a health issue as well and insurance should be able to help cover some of the costs.

    I am a Vietnam Vet, Is there anyone left in the world besides me that doesn't go around claiming PTSD. Bunch of wussies.
    Medical stories? There are horror stories on surgeries done be American doctors as well, like amputation of the wrong limb. Dental patients that die after going in for a simple dental procedure. Give me a break, incompetence exists in all professions.
    I get all my dental work done in Mexico and have never had any problems. Why pay $1500 for a root canal in the U.S. when I can get it done in Mexico for $250, or get a zirconia crown for $400 instead of a lesser quality porcelain crown for $1000 in the U.S.

    This is sad but there are plenty of successful weight loss stories from Mexico. This should be a cautionary tale about weight loss surgery in general. For some people losing weight is harder than others. I've had multiple family members who have had weight loss surgery and all lost massive amounts of weight and they've done well but not all people are as lucky even with doing your research but that always helps especially in this day.

    ¨You assume they are certified¨ ??????? are you kidding? No matter what country you go to get a surgery, you do not ASSUME they are certified. Way to gamble with your lives people. In Mexico we have incredible surgeons, physicians, nurses and healthcare workers that are incredible at what they do like in any other country. You do not SUPPOSE, you do not ASSUME. You do your homework and you review credentials.

    MMEEEXXXXIIICCCOOOOOOO GOOOAL GOOOOAL. Bad ideas have bad endings. If Doctors where you live will not do something or say it's unsafe, don't go find someone that will do it. If you have to meet certain criteria before things will work, wait until it's safe. Don't push it, especially if you have children!!!! The lady sounds like she is on a ton of pain meds... My god.

    My mother lost her spleen due to this surgery, among other issues. My godmother died from horrific complications due to this surgery. I have been hospitalized for a blood transfusion 34 times, due to this surgery.
    I was never told the importance of keeping up with vitamins and CBC checks when I had this surgery. My insurance company covered it, because I was so heavy. I went from 450 pounds to 147 pounds (I am 6'0). Please, if you are considering this, obtain counseling in nutrition and general beforehand. It is so very important. God bless ya'll.

    This started with the American food industrial complex. The monopolies in place have made most healthy options basically wasteful economically to a person living at or below the poverty line. People are losing weight and having extreme vitamin deficiencies because the really affordable food is like oily flavors of packing peanuts.

    My mom had the gastric bypass surgery in America and she continued losing weight until she couldn't even eat two bites of food. She started out at 220 pounds the reason she had the surgery was because of her diabetes and she was having early sons of kidney failure. She looked terrible she couldn't even walk without help. She died within a year and a half after her surgery. I've had to live without my mom because of this.

    This can happen anywhere !! bad surgery is not exclusive to Mexico or any other country in the world. I had my first cosmetic surgery with a reputable board certified surgeon in Texas and within a few days was in the ER with a terrible infection. After many years I tried again in Mexico and have been back 3 different times for different operations because of how great my results have been. I have also referred many people to my surgeon in Mexico and have had great results.

    i think the issue (please no one take it the wrong way) is 1: they didn’t research properly! people were probably bugs in their ears telling them how, where, and when so they ran with it 2: all 3 of them WEREN’T that big! usually people 350+ get weight loss surgery, and doctors who do their job tell you what you need to do before and after to make the process easy and 3: they used other’s experience! if you noticed all they said was “they didn’t” “she had” “my mother did”
    SURGERY IS DIFFERENT FOR EVERYONE! EACH COUNTRY IS DIFFERENT! we are a first world country with medics advances no offense to Mexico but BE CAREFUL

  • brooklynforever1990

    I had surgery in Mexico and it was the best thing I have ever done. You can’t just go to any dr, even in the states. You have to research and do your work. I used Dr. Carlos Altamirano and he is amazing. You always speak to him, not a “coordinator” and he has you send him blood work results regularly to monitor you post op.
    You can get a bad dr in the Us also, and my dr actually does a ton of revisions of lapbands that were done in the US and they have eroded into their organs. It’s not a Mexico/US issue.

    I've noticed, from my experiences and doctors I've gone to, that doctors in Mexico actually do their work. I've had many medical problems and the doctors here in the US only look to gain money, they don't care about their patients. In Mexico I've been diagnosed and given good medicine in a matter of moments. A fraction of the time than in the US.
    My brother had messed up his knee when playing soccer. The doctors here said there was nothing wrong and they'd sent him to get many tests done. His knee was hurting and we noticed he started developing a soft lump on his knee. We went to Mexico and found out in about a week he needed surgery becasue he messed up his ligaments and tendons.

If you go to Kaiser, chances are your Dr . has a few! There isn't an epidemic of Mexican citizens dying in hospitals. There's surgeries going on as we speak. There's chemo, babies being born, emergency room doctors saving lives, etc. Let's not portend like Mexico is a Primitive Country where people are operating with the forks, knives, and lanterns.

    I cannot speak for massive weight loss surgery. That sounds dangerous in any setting. But as an American living in Mexico, and I am in registered nurse, I never had such a good care with doctors in Mexico. I have had six surgeries here, two of them were to fix botches that happened in the United States. Mexican doctors still have heart and they have saved my life. But bariatric surgery is life-threatening in the United States as well. I remember at least three patients who died after bariatric surgery in Colorado. I see this as a weight-loss surgery problem, it is not a Mexico problem.

    While all of these people seem to had horrifying experiences with surgeons in Mexico I don't think this is anti Mexican propaganda or bashing Mexico.
    The piece is called MEDICAL TOURISM. The point is do your research and be careful when you go to another country for surgery. Regulations may not be the same as your home country so it might be that regulations for calling yourself a surgeon in one country may not hold the same weight or meaning and vice versa.
    If people watching can't separate people's individual experiences from international surgeries in general...😒...

    Why is Mexico being thrown under the bus? I think its to scare people from going there to have anything done. Think about it. Joan Rivers had her surgery in California & yet the entire state of California isn't under fire for it. The doctor who did her surgery is/was. MJ's, doctor is doing time for giving him DRUGS! Not to mention a number of other celebrities who have had BOTCHED surgeries. They even had a show about BOTCHED SURGERIES! Really!
    I mean come on people. Either lower the prices here in the states or, STOP WITH THIS FOOLERY ALREADY!
    Why are these 3 people on tv telling their story instead of filing charges against the doctors who performed these alleged surgeries? I guess I'll have to do some research on the legal terms of it all.

    Never, never would I go to Mexico for any surgery or dental care! I did my Bariatric surgery through my insurance and had the best doctor. No complications and I lost 183 pounds. That is not true that Insurance won’t cover it. First off, I had to prove all the weight loss problems that I tried, I had to visit a Psychiatrist and talk about why I wanted to lose weight etc, I had Sleep Apnea and high blood pressure (that I was taking medication for). My doctor supported my desire to have this surgery and she got the ball rolling for me. It was the best thing that ever happened to me and I am so grateful. Going to Mexico to have this done is absolutely stupid.

  • Julie Stitt

    I have 2 friends that went to Mexico for bariatric surgery, not because it's cheaper, but they'll do it for you if you only need 30-60 lbs to lose. Neither one of them were clinically considered obese. The surgery is meant for people with at least 100 lbs to lose. Dr's here in the United states are not legally aloud to perform this surgery on someone less than 100 lbs, they must also lose 15 to 20 lbs before surgery and be monitored by a dietitian. None of this is done where my friends went. One friend is now having trouble eating. They both got severely under weight. I blame society for trying to get a quick fix additionally to cheaper medical care. I'm sorry these people, especially the lady, knew the risk. Anyone with a computer can do their own research. Ignorance is not an excuse.

    Fortunately my gastric bypass was covered by my insurance. Honestly I think you can get the surgery anywhere in the world these days because anywhere I’m sure we’re highly trained. The same I believe is that you can have a terrible doctor who does the surgery and botches it. You really have to be assertive and do lots of research research and research yourself before you consider any kind of weight loss surgery. I did and I git the best gastric bypass surgery. It’s been 5 years this July 13th of this year. The 150.00 I lost I haven’t found it back and I’m doing well. Best of luck to all.

    I had gastric sleeve in the United States and i am always feeling sick. There's nothing wrong with my sleeve just common side effects. My gallbladder failed had to have it removed. Then got bile reflux so i can't handle many foods or i feel sick after eating. I got tons of kidney stones another common side effect. Had surgery to.remove them. Feels like im getting them again. Im 14 months out and since surgery ive lost 167lbs and total 237lbs. I dont regret it and i knew the side effects that i could possibly have. Im still losing weight and my dr said once my weight stabilizes my kidney stone issue gone. I don't feel like a bad option but people need to do their homework before hopping on a plane. I know someone who went to mexico for surgery and had sleeve no complications but her sleeve is way bigger than mine
    .she can eat 4x what i can eat. She had her surgery.6 months before me and i was 150lbs heavier than her and now im 25lbs smaller than her. Her dr in mexico said it was common to be resleeved but speaking with mine he said he has never done that. So idk
