Recommended Posts

If anyone is reading this and is concerned about the travel to Mexico, please dont. It was great! I flew down on March 8th, the day before my surgery from Canada , I got to relax at the beautiful Marriot hotel, were the staff was fantastic!!!you let them know you are visiting with the OCC and they will take amazing care of you, it was so pleasing. The next day, after the hotel staff wished me the best, off to the hospital I went..

There were other women and men there traveling from all over, that also impressed me. I met some great people, lucky me!!

Soon after that I met with the nutritionist Miranda, who was so sweet and caring, and talked real with me, and it was exactly what I needed. I also had my heart and lungs checked and was all cleared..From this point I was taken to the back where the nurses were so amazing, caring and funny..I felt really relaxed, the rooms were more like little hotel suites. Then....Dr.Ortiz came in, umm not to hard on the eyes..and he was even more funny and caring..He asked me if I was nervous and he said he was too,trying to break the ice, he was just joking but he made me laugh and felt very relaxed..Soon after that, I was taken in for surgery, and met the rest of the team, all of them were fantastic have to say they really took care of me and reassured myself that, indeed I was in good hands..and before I knew it surgery was done..Just like that!! They had me up and walking as soon as possible...Then after a few hours, off to the hotel for relaxing..the doctors gave me their numbers if I needed anything.

.I did not stay long in Mexico, kind of wish I did spend an extra day there just to relax and maybe visit the staff once more....However back across the border I went, day after surgery, and no issues at all, no concerns nothing.. THen back on the plane home...and back to reality...I told Dr.Ortiz that he should have a reunion, because I would definitly go back for a visit..In total from pre op to now down 15pds..feeling good!!! Good luck to all!! :wub: If anyone has any questions or concerns I would be more than happy to answer them!!

I also was there on March 9th, and I have to agree it was wonderful! I LOVED the whole staff. I was actually in Mexico less than 24 hours! I cant wait to go back in 6 weeks for my fill. I had no pain with the surgery, a little tenderness was all. Im so excited to have made the leap and finally took my life into my own hands.
