I posted this on TOB. Someone wanted knee replacement surgery in Jocotepec Hospital.

Had my six month checkup yesterday. Lots of tests to take. I asked her about my small umbilical hernia. She said I have to get my Body Mass Index down before surgery or the hernia could quickly reappear, even with mesh ( the internet says recurrence rate of about 5%). I told her my experience at Jocotepec hospital. That at the last minute before surgery the Anesthetologist said my blood platelets were too low for surgery. Turns out the platelets were low because of anti-biotic resistant E-coli infection. One month later I had mild congestive heart failure and cardio arrythmia. Then kidney stones. Now, thank Mother Gaia, the hernia operation is the last thing to overcome. I suggested that maybe I should go back to Jocotepec and carry on with the already issued paperwork/approval and already purchased surgical mesh. She said no - that this type of surgery (and I am assuming knee replacement surgery) should be conducted at a higher tier hospital. That I would have to meet up with a variety of specialists, including a cardiologist, each would have to green light the surgery. I went through this with kidney stones, operated two times sucessfully. Now I have go through this process all over again with my hernia - firstly making an appointment with General Surgery. For knees, it should be an orthpopedic surgeon. A lot of waiting around if you go the public hospital route. The specialists are paid by public monies, not private, so they have all the time in the world, and can afford to be cautious and thorough. So if time is money to you, go private, but if time is retirement time, just buy a kindle with lots of good books. No public Wi Fi in public hospitals, no cable TV, so get a cell package if you can't go without internet, games and data access. The next higher tier hospitals with intensive care, and critical care, are all in Guadalajara. They are not all health spas, but do get the job done - eventually.

Yes, I am thinking the natural route too. Good incentive to lose weight and keep it off.

I saw the comedian Amy Schumer lift her dress the other day to show her baby bump and she now has umbilical hernia, so she showed the bandaids over it. She has a lot of funny stories about her pregnancy, I am sure many women are saying I'm glad I never had kids.

Not in Mexico. Here you get "Sorry for the inconvenience."
