Bariatric surgery sounds radical and scary. Having it in a foreign country sounds even scarier. Breastfeeding through it sounds just plain nuts.
I thank everyone who has posted their experience to the internet. Without their generosity in sharing their experience, I could not have taken this leap. Still, I wish there was more information available.
I hope to help others, especially mothers, who may be considering bariatric surgery by posting my experience – with the surgeon, with Mexico, with breastfeeding, including any complications and (hopefully) successes. Whether my experience turns out good, bad or mixed, I hope to provide details here that can help others know whether this is right for them.
Love and God’s blessings,
