My Christmas present this year from my Mom will be received January 14, 2013, sleeve surgery. As soon as she said she wanted to do this for me I was so excited. I know someone who had her lap band surgery with Dr. Ortiz, then her Mom, her Dad, her sister and then an in-law all went at seperate times to the OCC for either the lap band or sleeve surgery and all were very pleased with the facilities, doctors and their surgery.
I have had no apprehension at all about the surgery. I even watch a live surgery being done and was completely amazed at how it is done. I've not been scared about going to Mexico to have this done. However, the closer it gets and the more people express their concern about all of this, the more nervous I get.
I haven't started my pre-op, 2-week prior diet but have already lost 8 pounds; which I'm very excited about, but also nervous that I won't lose the necessary weight they require prior to surgery. I'm sure I'm just worrying about what to worry about but if anyone has any support they would like to give I'd be thankful to hear it.
