May 2004 - Update!
We just found out that we're pregnant!!! We're so excited. I had my
reversal on Sept. 6, 2003. This is one of the best mother's day
gifts I could have received.

We flew to McAllen from Houston Sept. 5th and stayed in The
Residence Inn. At 6am, on the 6th, Aimee picked us up and took us in
to Rio Bravo. It was such a comfort to have Aimee drive us an not
have to worry about finding it ourselves, plus she took us in and
found the nurse and helped us fill out the papers before she left.
Then the nurse came in to put the I.V. in, it was uncomfortable but
she got it on the first try, it did slip out a little after surgery
and they had to push it back in but that was the only pain I
experienced during the whole surgery process. Dr Levy came in about
7am and asked about allergies and previous surgeries and said they'd
do surgery about 10 am. S o, while we waited I read and John went
outside and filmed the Hosp. and looked around the town. Sometime
between 9:30 and 10:00 am, the nurse came to wheel me in to surgery.
I saw the cross everyone speaks of above the door and Dr. Moreno
introduced himself and said he was going to put something to make me
sleepy in my I.V. and then they rolled me over to do the epidural.
The worst part of that was the stuff they wipe your back with, it
was cold, then I felt a small pinch and that was it. The sleepy
stuff never made me sleepy though so I was awake during the entire
surgery. I didn't feel anything, just slight pressure or a little
Dr Moreno talked during the whole surgery, they joked and laughed,
of course it was all in Spanish so I don't know what they said,
except when they talked to John in English. When they were finished
they called John over to see the tubes and John ask if everything
looked good and Dr Perez said no ~ it looked excellent! Then it was
over and I was wheeled back to the room where they brought John some
lunch and I dozed.
Dr. Levy came in later that afternoon and brought the paper work and
explained every thing and stayed and just talked for a while. John
ask if we could leave as soon as was safely possible and he said we
could go first thing in the morning and he said he'd call Aimee for
us. He also offered to move us to the room across the hall because
it had a vcr, which I thought was very sweet of them. Then that
evening they brought John and I both supper, and the food was very
At 6:45 the next morning Aimee picked us up and took us back to the
hotel where we both crashed till noon, because neither of us slept
well at the hospital, it was comfortable but still a hospital.
We had a very good experience, the Dr's and nurses go out of their
way to make you feel comfortable. It was very clean and pleasant.
Some of the things I'd agree with everyone else on bringing are
support panties, the bandage tends to slip and slide if you move or
walk a lot and is impossible to get back on if you take it off. Also
cold bottled water, they bring a pitcher of water to the room but it
didn't have ice and was lukewarm. They did bring food at every meal
and we had plenty of blankets and pillows.
We paid $1850 and I have 5cm on the left and 6cm on the right. We
had a great experience and I'd recommend Rio Bravo and Dr's Perez
and Levy to anyone.
