SOTB Surgery List

A pic of Dr. A's Apartment, Bambi (Dr. A's driver) and Rosella (Dr. A's daughter and assistant)

SOTB What to bring list

This is a list of several items I found useful/necessary when I was SOTB (South of the Border) having my RNY. Hope those of you that are headed south find the list helpful.

Lip Balm
Liquid Body Soap (easier than bars)
Shampoo & Conditioner
Feminine Products (even if you just had your cycle most get a repeat performance shock of surgery I guess)
Bath robe (for walking the halls)
Slip on slippers or flip flops
Tank tops for under your binder/T-shirts for over
Loose fitting soft elastic waist pants
Passport (1/2007 required only if you fly in, after 1/2008 it will be required even for land travel) otherwise it's Driver's License and a copy of your Birth Certificate
Plenty of $1, $5, and $10 US bills (no need to change money)
Calling card that works in Mexico or add a plan to your cellphone for making calls inside Mexico.
Plastic garbage bag for dirty clothes.
Digital camera for taking pics of your scar (you know we all do it LOL)
Ipod passed the time.

Dr. A specific: If you are staying in Dr. A's designated apartment you will have internet access. A pay phone is only steps from the front door of the apartment. A Gigante supermarket is just a few blocks away. So is a laundromat. There's a park a block away which is a great place to get your walking in.

Dr. A's apartment kitchen is stocked with a bunch of packaged and canned goods but I found I used: Decaf Tea Bags, Chicken Broth and
Water bottles (I brought a few and then bought some @ Gigante)

For additional pics of Dr. A's apartment feel free to email me.
