Default Gastric Sleeve surgery

Well, with Ace doing so well, I decided to come out of the closest, so to speak. I went to Mexico and had gastric sleeve surgery on April 1. My insurance would only pay for gastric bypass and with my health history, this was not an option. Best price I could find in the states was $16,000 and with travel it cost me about $6,000 in Tijuana. Found out that Tijuana has the most medical tourism in the world.

I have battled my weight my whole life and with my neck and hip issues decided it was time to do something to get it off and keep it off.

I started the pre op diet at 308 on March 16 and weighed in at 271 this morning. Still a long way to go, but getting there.
