    Having surgery this year with Dr. Almanza in Mexico......

    I was just wondering if any of Dr. Almanza's patients are on here that have had Lap Band with him? How has your success been? Have you had any problems? What about finding a local doctor to help you with fills/unfills? Would you go back and do the sleeve if you could? I am not sure when I am having surgery, I just know it's going to be this year. I am nervous and excited and ready to get this done. I do keep hearing that the sleeve is better. I also keep reading posts of FB from others who have the sleeve and they are not having success. That is my fear. I don't want to be like them. I guess I need to hear from the sleevers too. How has your experience been? How have you done since leaving Mexico? How long ago was your surgery? Am I really doing the right thing? My mind and heart are both saying "Lap Band." I really don't know what to do and need help deciding. I am so confused. I just want this to work and not be a waste of money or time. My husband and I do plan on making sure we have revision money in case something were to happen, like a slippage.

    Please help!

    I had lapband surgery with Dr Almanza on December 17th no problems no surprises in Tijuana. Was not alone there were 8 of us on my schedule at airport, others were sleeves as that is the most popular thing to do, but I want the ability to remove it as I am 59 now. I was never afraid from the minute I was picked up. WLA have been so attentive and have answered every question and I have had bugged them. They gave me several names for fills and adjustments, I have an appointment on Monday..you can call me

    Hi I just got my lap band 2 weeks ago with Dr. Almanza in Tijuana. How are you doing since surgery. How did your first fill go?How much weight have you loss?
