    I was scheduled for my sleeve on December 1st. Got to the clinic on November 30 for pre-op stuff and they decided to do my surgery that day. I am so glad I went ahead with this as it gave me an extra day to recover before flying home. It was a great experience with amazing doctors and nurses. The hotel and staff are amazing also. The only advise I give is to pack light and pack loose fit clothing. Bring hair ties if your hair is long. Walmart is about two blocks from the hotel but if you walk it is uphill the way there, so we took a taxi back to hotel as I was tired from that walk. I went downtown to Revolutionary way and bought souvenirs, took a taxi there and back. It was a great experience and I have never been to mexico before. My incision sites are almost healed on the outside and I am on day 10. I never had any pain what so ever. Little nauseated after coming out of anesthesia but that did subside. Looking forward to my progression.

    Hi All! I’d like to share both of my positive experiences with the OCC. I was banded in 2007 and was really impressed with the clinic and the aftercare. I lost most of my weight, coming within 20 pounds of my goal. My pre diabetes and high cholesterol is gone. I also don’t have to take arthritis medication for pain in my hips anymore! However, due to a thyroid issue a couple of years ago, I gained some of the weight back. Then early last summer, I started to have some problems with my band. I decided to have a revision and go with the sleeve. After such a good experience the first time, of course I chose to go back to the OCC. The care was just as great as the first time. My band was a good tool and I really liked it but I absolutely LOVE my sleeve! I’ve lost all the weight I regained plus some and am only 12 pounds from my goal. I’m smaller than I’ve been for almost 35 years and am looking into plastic surgery now. A big thank you to the entire OCC team for being so helpful and supportive!

    I was banded in 2006 and loved it. it worked perfectly and I lost 100 pounds. I then came back to OCC in 2014 and had tummy tuck (perfect results). but I had to have my band taken out last year and have regained some of the weight. I am getting my sleeve in a few weeks on march 30th . I trust the OCC team COMPLETELY, and am so excited for this next phase of my life.

    Hello - Your post is very encouraging to me! I was banded in November of 2011, loved it (except for the times when I got too much of a fill) until November of 2014 when it slipped on Thanksgiving day and I had to have it surgically removed. At that point in time I had no fill and now I'm thinking I should have kept a small amount in it, but who knows. The surgeon who removed wanted to sleeve me 6 weeks after the band removal, but I knew if I was going to be sleeved, it would be at OCC. At first I thought I would be able to maintain my weight loss as it had been 3 years as my eating habits had changed....but oh OH NO, 15 months later i\I've gained all but 10 pounds of the weight I lost. I'm so looking forward to the sleeve being the tool I need to get back on track and loose this 6- pounds yet again and FOREVER!
