"I’m so glad I had my surgery with Dr. Hidalgo. I was very nervous at first. I asked questions of the people in this support group, they were all answered very well. All of my fears were unfounded. Everything went very smooth, I’m 4 days postoperative and I feel really good. I did feel hungry the first day but that soon subsided. It’s been at least five days since I had any solid food and I do not feel hungry. If you’re considering having surgery with Dr. Hidalgo, and you have questions, please feel free to contact me and I will answer any questions you might have. Dr. Hidalgo is a very kind doctor. He is also very attentive as well as qualified. I am eager to make a YouTube video and post some of the suggestions that I have. While we were in Mexico I met someone who was having surgery just like myself. We chose to walk around Puerto Vallarta and one of the things we did was order a mango margarita with no alcohol. This turned out to be a very useful idea. It gave a bit of variety to my “diet” while I was there. It had no added sugar. Yummy!"
"Had my surgery on May 30, 2015. I flew by myself to Puerto Vallarta was picked up at airport by the driver and taken to hotel. Everyone is very friendly the hotel is beautiful. I was picked up the next day with another woman from the states having same surgery. The hospital is very clean and felt great about the care. After surgery my tummy was tender, like too many sit ups. Did spit up bile a couple of times and felt much better. The wait for water was hard. I had drank so much the last few months that I was craving it. Ice chips never tasted so good and then lime sherbet. Monday Dr. Removed drain tube, that was a weird sensation to say the least. Answered all my questions and then we were discharged to hotel. Missed the hospital bed the first night had to use tummy muscles, really wasn’t bad. Next day we went down town and walked around had a virgin mango margarita that was mainly mango and ice, so good. Had chicken soup at hotel. Only had the broth, spicy but no problem it was great too. I am staying until Friday but would have no problem going home earlier, my experience has been great. Don’t wait, it is worth it to have a healthy life."
"I had the VSG surgery done by Dr. Hidalgo Nov 22nd. The entire weight loss team and Dr. Hidalgo were fantastic at giving me crazy amounts of information and were very quick at answering any questions. 3 Months after the surgery my blood pressure was normal, and I was off of the high blood pressure pills. By the end of month 5 my diabetes was GONE! No more pills for that. I am at month seven, and have lost 118 lbs. I feel great. Thanks all."

Today is a big day!! This morning I weighed myself like I do every Sunday, but this morning I noticed the first digit was a 2 instead of a 3! I am proud to say I am out of the 300lb club! The left picture is me at my heaviest weight of 352 pounds, and the picture on the right is me at my current weight of 298 pounds. I want to thank Gerald Witt Jr. Juan F. Hidalgo and the rest of The Weight Loss team for making this dream reality! Down 54 pounds and not stopping anytime soon!
First off thank you guys so much and tell Dr Hidalgo he was the greatest in make me feel at ease with everything. It was a great experience from the beginning to the end. While my wife was nervous :-) I felt great and in good hands and was never worried. I started at 300 maybe a little over. Today I am 1 pound from healthy Bmi at 195. I was sleeved 3/21/17. Greatest decision I could have ever made. Before I was very unhealthy with medical issues. Those have all cleared up even canceling my back surgery for the time being. I didn't want to go out much and wad always tired. Now I can get up at 3 am do stuff around the house go to work come home work on my remodel of my house and hit the gym until 9. I feel literally like Im 10 again. This has brought me so much closer with my wife and kids also. My work ethic has sky rocketed too! Its amazing when I look back. I wanted to let you guys know how thankful I am and know I won't take it for granted. I am finally free from the one setback of control from food. I feel I have gained total control of myself and it feels great. Thanks again!
All I can say is wow!! Thanks Dr. H and Weight Loss Team!
Just wanted to share my progress! I'm down 68 lbs since the procedure April 13th. I'm almost to my goal weight so it's time to start learning how to maintain and not keep losing.
