Would you get a bariatric surgery in another country to save $$? Is saving $ with a gastric bypass?
Would you take the chance or just pay a little more to get the weight loss surgery in US.
starvation is a lousy unhealthy way to loose weight and has poor long-term succes rates.
consider instead a fasting program that lasts about 4 months eating only protein shakes to get a break away from food. relearn your food habits when restarting to eat and include a daily exercise program.
exercise is the key to a healthy weight, not starvation.
Gastric Banding has been done in other countries legally YEARS prior to the US approving it in 2002. A family member actually had it done in Mexico a few years ago because of the cost savings. He said it was like being treated as a King in a 4 Star hotel. He is a flight attendant so the trip was free. That said, I will mention there ARE US options with comparable "cash" prices. My mom had it done in Denver Colorado for the same price as the family member who flew to Mexico.

Here in the US, should there be a law that people be banished from this country because they sexually abuse or assault a child. I think this may stop or reduce these types of incidents. What do you think?
