Feb 11, 2002
I would just like to say that I had
the honor to have my reversal perform by Dr. Roberto Perez. I
had my surgery performed on February 11, 2002.
I arrived in McAllen, Tx on February 9, from West Palm Beach,
Florida. At first the trip was turning out to be a disaster, from
missing the first flight until having our hotel reservations
cancelled and also having no rental car to get around. At first I
figured that was a sign not to have the surgery, but the next day
was truly better.
A girlfriend of mine that speaks fluent Spanish went with me for
support during the surgery and also to translate for me. We set out
at 11:00 am to find the hospital needless to say we got lost. We
finally stopped at a 7 eleven in Rio Bravo and called Dr. Perez, he
pointed us in the right direction, we were right up the street from
the hospital! Then this nice lady and her son offered to let us
follow them to find the hospital.
When we got there we told Levi that we had been lost, and that we
were scared to leave. He talked to me and my friend for a while and
assured us everything was going to be ok.
Next morning we left McAllen, TX at 5:30 am and believe it or not we
got straight to the hospital. They took me straight to the room gave
me a gown, came and took blood and prep me, and at 8:00 am, Levi was
wheeling me into the Operating Room where I met Dr. Perez and the
anesthesiologist. Within 15 minutes I was out like a light. The next
time I woke up it was in my room. My friend said it only took them
two hours and I was done.
I was trying to get out of bed by 12 P.M.. I felt great, no pain
what so ever until I got back home to Florida, but only for a few
days. I was back to work on that Wednesday and I arrived home on
I would recommend Dr. Perez and the entire staff, to anyone. He and
"Levi" are the best, the entire staff really. I have never seen a
hospital clean so much in my life, that hospital is so clean you
could literally eat off the floor.
