Assistance in Mexico
You may feel a little nervous about traveling outside the United States, but it is only a couple of hours away. It takes longer to fly coast-to-coast than it does to fly to Mexico. When you arrive, we have a chauffeur meet you at baggage claim and bring you to the hospital or hotel. All of your arrangements are already set up for your convenience. We arrange all of your accommodations at the hotel and hospital, and the doctor's staff and our team will treat you like family. You have to understand that thousands of Americans cross the borders into Mexico everyday. It isn't any different then being in a large city right here in the United States.
The most important thing to remember about the hospital and surgery is that the doctors, nurses, and staff know exactly what they are doing, and they will take excellent care of you. There will always be someone at the hospital from administration that will be able to explain everything, and continue to answer all of your questions about that facility. You will be directed through admissions, and then taken to your hospital room to be prepped for surgery. You will then meet your doctor and the rest of the surgical team before the operation begins. The procedure usually takes about 30 to 90 minutes, depending on the procedure. Once you awake in the recovery room, the nurses will monitor you and allow you to wake up. You will then be brought back to your hospital room to rest for a while. Nurses and doctor's staff will be checking on you regularly to make sure that you have everything you need.
Once you are fully awake you will already be in your room. After resting, the nurses will encourage you to get up and start walking. After about 6 to 12 hours, you will start with ice chips and graduate to liquids. The doctor will come by and check on you to make sure you are doing well and have everything you need. The day you are released from the hospital, you will be taken to your hotel. Once you have checked into the hotel, it is a good thing to rest for a while. After you have rested, it is a good idea to either walk around the hotel or maybe at a mall. It is important to move around when you can. The more you walk, the better you will feel. After a good night's rest on the last night at the hotel, you will be ready to fly home the next morning and start your new life!
We have arrangements to put our patients up at Real Inn Tijuana. For more information about the quality of the hotel, check out their Expedia profile here.
