    Medical Tourism PS Abroad

    I've not posted for a REALLY long time, but thought i'd chime in here. I got my RNY done in Mexico and am going back on the 22nd of this month for my BL/BA. I am using Dr Fuentes in Tij, Mexico. He is amazing!! I figure even including airfare and hotel, I am still saving 1000's of dollars and will have a great job done.

    Is it too early?

    I am reall glad I didn't get mine done in Dec. like I had planned. I would have been 1 year out and below my goal (at 140). At the time I had been told I would need a LBL, but I think now, I can just get a tummy tuck and feel and look great. I now weigh 131 and even over the last couple of months, my body has changed so much. I have found that my weight has totally redistributed!!! The waist of my jeans is pretty loose now, but I still weigh the same thing! I am hoping for this summer.

    Tummy Tuck vs. Panni and technique

    Cool!! Good luck on which ever route you choose. I am hoping to get mine done this summer. I had to put it off in October as we bought a house instead!! Had to get my priorities straight!! From what I've heard, most plastic surgeons in Vancouver won't do the Panni due to the little bit of cash that medical pays.

    Tummy Tuck vs. Panni and technique

    Can you ask to see pics from previous surgeries? I did that with the PS that I was consulting with and he emailed me a bunch of pics. It was a nice way to get an idea of what the finished scars would look like, the kind of work he does, etc.

    The now is where I am struggling a bit. My focus has been taken off losing and now is put onto maintaining. It's a different road to travel. I have good days and bad days, but the being healthy makes it all worth while. I found myself drifting from the boards for a few months, and then realizing that it was my support network that I was drifting from, slowly started going back again. I find that by just reading the boards every couple of days, seems to keep me in check better. Keep up the great work!! Look how far you have come!!

    I have had the same problem with my rings. I went from a size 9.5 to a 5.75. He had to remake my ring to make it fit and he told me that I had better not lose any more weight cause he can't size it again!!! Way to go girl!!! Keep it up!!!

    Ok ladies i have an AUNT FLO question

    I didn't have a period for about 5 months after surgery!! I was totally freaked out but my Dr figured it was from the stress on my body and not enough protein, etc..

    Starbucks

    I'm with you. I can drink gallons of non fat milk, but even 1/4 of a cup of whole milk and I am dumping like crazy!!! It makes me SOOOOO sick.

    I have been working my butt off at 3 jobs trying to save money to buy our house!!! Hopefully we will be moving in around April. That last 10lbs is the hardest huh? I also struggle to get enough food. I have been really bad lately and have been eating like sh*t. I need to get back to basics and go for the protein not the carbs. Congrats on the size 14's!! Keep up the great work!!!

    Struggling

    I drink starbucks all the time. I either order it NonFat or with Soy milk and whatever syrup I want, just 1/2 sweet. I do ok with them now, but in the beginning, not so well. My weight fluctuates 5 lbs up and down and I used to panic about it, but have learned that that's just where my body wants to be, between 130 and 135.
