I'm having my gastric sleeve surgery on May 10th.

I live in northern coastal California.  I previously had a plication in 2012 by Dr. Ortiz but over time, the pouch seems to have progressively enlarged and eroded my weight loss.  Going backwards is not for me at my age (67)!

I tried to find a local bariatric surgeon who was also a medicare provider but they are not plentiful.  And my BMI of 32 was not high enough to meet the requirements.  It took me just a few days to decide to return to Dr. Ortiz.  I did not even consider another provider in Tijuana.

Would love to hear from anyone who will be there at that time.
