  1. I'm having difficulty with mobility due to worsening of scoliosis. I've consulted with Surgeons in Mexico City, Guadalajara and University of Utah. I'm getting varying opinions which adds to my confusion and uncertainty. I'm 76 which is another complicating factor. It's within the realm of possibility I could live 15-20 more years. I must make a wise decision. Any personal experience with scoliosis recovery/ or living with it,  would be helpful to me. Thank you for your input. 

  2. I have lost my passport- I need to get it replaced quickly. I’m seeking guidance from any Gringo who has had to replace this document. What glitches should I be careful of, what papers do I need. I’m scheduled to go to LCS on Jan 8 and meet with the people who assist with lost or stolen passports. Should I have photos taken, where and what size? Thank you.

    I know there are old threads on this, but as usual, recommendations all over the map. Can anyone recommend dermatologist that comes to Lakeside and does skin cancer screenings?

    Does anyone have Dra Martha Bellesteros Flores. She is a Dermatologia who I have used. She has moved and her phone number has changed. Does anyone know her phone number. She is the doctor who does skin cancer screenings at LCS. 

  4. I am in search of an extremely qualified foot surgeon. I recently had my left foot operated on by a doctor who came highly recommended from a local clinic. The surgery turned out terribly; my metatarsal and great toe do not touch the ground anymore so my balance is severely compromised. Since he came so highly recommended, I am hesitant to put myself in the care of another orthopedic surgeon. 

    I would like to hear from people who have successfully had foot surgery from a competent physician. 

    1. Does anyone know of Dr. Agustin Toscano Barragán He works out of Hospital Rossete. Avenida Circunvalación Division del Norte 487, Monumental, 4320 Guadalajara

    Dr. Daniel Sanchez DPM (works at the same clinic at Barragan)

    2. Total Feet Podologos - Av. Puerto Melaque 1233, Santa Mariía, 44350 Guadalajara

    3. Any other surgeons ???

    I would also appreciate being steered away from a surgeon who had a questionable reputation. Feel free to PM me.

  5. I purchased hearing aids at Costco in Utah 3 years ago. The follow up support has been great. I have not checked out Guad yet. I love the hearing aids I got from them. It was something like $1200-1800. On the low end of that but I don't know for sure. The blue tooth feature is my favorite. It enables me to hear on the phone without so many "what's?"  I also enjoy listening to audio books that play through my hearing aids. Divine. Really helps when I am doing housework or other unpleasant tasks. 

  6. I have not heard of hypnosis for neuropathy, however, I expect it has as a good  chance of being successful....our minds are extremely receptive to suggestions as well as recording and responding to our internal dialogue. I am a certified NLP Health Practitioner.  I know NLP can improve clinical outcomes for chronic ailments,  reduce and resolve stress, orient patients toward healing and health. NLP provides techniques that address a wide range of complex and chronic conditions. I suggest you contact http://internationalnlpassociation.org/ to see if there are any certified NLP practitioners in your area or a nearby city. 

    Good luck to you
