Worried About Complications After Weight Loss Surgery Abroad

by Alyssa


I had Gastric Sleeve Surgery in Mexico a couple of weeks ago. Should I be worried if I have complications in the states?

I am now wondering if physicians in the states frown upon that. If I have a complication, do most insurance companies help pay for the healthcare? I researched everything else but forgot about complication issues.

How will you know if you have a leak around the staples? Is stenosis common?

I am wearing compressions stockings at night or if driving for long periods of time. My brother is a NP and was upset when he found out I had the surgery and got me all worried now.

I do have bad luck which scares me even more…
Can someone help me out?!
