Safely Store Your Belongings
Our hospital will provide you with a safe in which you can store your belongings for safekeeping. This enables our patients to have peace of mind while undergoing surgery and during recovery. The hotel will also provide a safe within the hotel room which you can use if necessary.
When a new patient posted about traveling alone and being worried, Jay also stated,
“If you are alone you can ask your intake person to lock up your passport, cash in their safe in a Ziploc bag during your time in surgery till you are discharged. They did that for someone on my floor. Make sure your suitcase has wheels. When you fly home, make sure you tell the airport you recently had surgery (they are used to it in San Diego).
They put you in their golf cart and take you to your gate (Sean loved this BTW). Then at the gate tell them you had surgery and you get to board first. Have the steward lift your bag into the cargo bin. DO NOT do it yourself, I did, and it hurt. Bring bouillon granules and tea bags for easy pre-op and post-op travel, all you need is hot water from a coffee place, a place to eat or the steward on the plane.
Wear your compression socks from surgery on the plane ride home or bring some of your own. Chapstick, gas x strips, and a book. Make you have an international plan on the cell, and you have your bank know you are in Mexico. When you at the hotel and hospital you will never be alone again. The friends you make on this journey are yours forever. And I still text my roomie from time to time. YOU got this…We got you, my friend.”
Overall Safety in Tijuana During your Stay
Some worry about safety in Tijuana, but it is, in fact, a safe and affordable place to travel to for surgery.
Our staff and former patients are excellent sources of information for any questions you have regarding just what it is like once in Tijuana. Again, some of the best places to hear about our company and our services are from those who have been helped by us and can speak from experience.
We Have Helped Thousands of Patients with or without Companions
We have helped thousands of patients undergo weight loss surgery who may or may not have had a companion at their side. Some of them do get nervous about traveling alone and are pleasantly relieved at how smooth the process was when they return home. While we do offer the ability to bring a companion, we have structured our process in such a way that you are in good hands even when on your own.
If you have any questions about our services and process, you are welcome to submit a question on our contact page or call us at 855-768-7247
