Janet had so much trouble trying to decide how much of her experience with her bariatric surgical procedure with Dr. Marco Sariñana, an expert in endoscopic and bariatric surgery
that she actually wrote several testimonials regarding her surgery and
what's happened in her life since then.
so good these days, despite the fact that I will be 62 years old in
September and retiring from a full time job." However, Janet feels so
good and so full of life now that she's considering picking up
additional part-time work, and even working in a retail store, something
she couldn't have done before the surgery because she weighed too much
to stand on her feet too long.
Janet Achieves Success in Mexico
is very excited to promote the expertise, compassion and concern of Dr.
Marco Sariñana. As a San Diego native, Janet was pleased to find the
excellent and highly qualified bariatric surgeon in Mexicali, just a
hop, skip and a jump across the border from her home.
surgery one year ago, Janet has lost 100 pounds, a safe and gradual
weight loss that has not only changed her outlook about her appearance,
but has offered deeper changes into her lifestyle and eating habits.
A surgery that Changed a Life
In August 2010, Janet made the decision and travel to the Hospital de la Mujer in Mexicali to have her gastric sleeve weight-loss surgical procedure. While Janet wasn't that concerned about going to Mexico for her surgery, she was worried about how it would change her life.
was concerned about changes in her lifestyle," says Dr. Marco Sariñana.
"She wondered if she would be able to eat normal food, if she would
lose the weight, and most importantly, if she would survive the surgery.
These are all very normal questions."
When she met Dr. Sariñana,
Janet's anxieties were soothed. Dr. Sariñana's calm bedside manner
helped relieve her anxiety before the surgical procedure. When she woke
up from the surgery (done laparoscopically), she felt only a little
discomfort but nothing serious. The following morning she was up and
walking around her room.
"One of the most comforting things was
that, unlike in the US, my husband was allowed to stay in the hospital
room with me. The hospital had a wonderful cook and restaurant, and my
husband assured me that the food was delicious!"
Janet stayed in
the hospital for several days and then returned home. A year after
surgery, Janet writes, "I feel wonderful. I have energy, stamina, and
my bones and joints do not ache anymore."
Janet weighed 225
pounds when she went in for surgery and has gone from a 3/4 extra-large
T-shirt and 22 to 24-waist pant to medium shirts and a size 10/12 pant.
She's not done yet. Janet had tried for years to lose weight, and
sometimes was successful, but she always put the weight back on.
"The gastric sleeve surgery makes it easier to just eat small amounts of food, and feel full
faster. Smaller portions keep the stomach small, and coupled with
exercise, offers extremely beneficial results," says Dr. Sariñana.

the surgery to me so I could explore it and make an informed decision.
He gave me the tool to a much healthier, happier real life. Thanks,
doctor," Janet smiles.
