Mother of Two Saves Her Life with Gastric Sleeve Surgery

Maria Prieto, 42-Year-Old On-the-Go Mom

My journey started way before November 6th, 2014 – as a 42-year-old mother of two children and with a wonderful husband. My life was always on the go, healthy but never really healthy… On the go got really comfortable. And food became part of my lifestyle.

After years of this, I started noticing weight gain – but it was way too late to do anything about it. Until the day I said no more! I was highly recommended to Dr. Louisiana Valenzuela and had heard nothing but amazing feedback about Mexico Bariatric Center and Hospital Mi Doctor. No research was needed, I took the leap and decided to make an appointment.

“Still amazed on how far this journey had brought me .. Dr. Valenzuela you will always have a place in my heart…thank you.  Again.!!” – Maria Prieto on 11/6/14

Surgery Date and Diet

November 6th was my set date… this just got real. Weeks before surgery, I was on a strict diet given by Doctor Valenzuela. Luckily, I also had an amazing coordinator who helped me throughout the whole way, from day one till the day that I arrived and even after I was out of surgery and went back home.
