I haven't decided whom or where yet.  I have decided on the roux-en-y.  Which procedure are you having?  I live in York co, but work all over the state.  Our office is moving to Gervais st this month in the state museum.  Which dept do you work for?  I'm in Columbia from time to time maybe we can meet someday.

I am going to Dr. Aceves on August 5th in Mexicali.    I did a great deal of research before selecting him.   He is not the cheapest surgeon there, but I wanted the best I could find.    I will be in the hospital three nights and have three leak tests.   Here, I would have paid $20,000 to $25,000 for one night in the hospital and one leak test.  The cost of surgery with Dr. Aceves is $8,750.   I am in Columbia.

Congrats!!!
Which MD are you going to see? I think that's what I'm going to do as well. Any help/advice is appreciated. Where are you in the state?

I am a state employee,  too.   It is specifically excluded from our policy.   They will not pay for our surgery.  I am going to Mexico in August for mine.

HUGS. Thanks a lot for sharing.. you are wonderful .. it is you - just looking younger.. (and happier)  

 

If it not too much to ask -    Would you mind telling me - if you know how much that (roughly)  can cost? 

I heard really good stories about that doc.  I am in SC and I got quoted 2 years ago for just full face work.. 

I wonder how much would that cost with "your" doc... and then see what are any extra costs (travel, companion travel, etc..) Also - how long do you think a stay in Mexico will be needed ? 1-2 weeks?
