I self-paid in Florida. $12,500, including doctor, hospital and anesthesia. WORTH every penny, IMO. I've finally stopped wanting to kiss my doctor's feet every time I walk in his office, but it's tough. :) He gave me back my life.

This is good to know.. not as high as I thought it would be. Dh is not a fan of me going to Mexico if the insurance won't cover it and I'm trying to give him an idea of what it would cost if we had to pay for it ourselves..

I'm fairly sure my insurance will cover it though.

Why won't insurance cover the sleeve for all of you? Just because you don't meet the BMI and such? After seeing how expensive it is. I feel so blessed. My insurance covered my surgery 100%

I'm self-pay. I ended up at $15,100 total with administrative fees and a little extra for blood work that didn't go through my insurance company. The fee includes everything at the hospital and one year of followup appointments with the surgeon (about one every 6 weeks after the initial one about a week after surgery). We financed it, so we will end up paying a lot more over time, but it was worth my peace of mind to have a local surgeon.

Katieb - my insurance doesn't have any kind of weight loss surgery. There is a weight loss surgery rider that my husband's company did not opt to add to their plan. Therefore, I did not have an option for insurance to pay regardless of my BMI or any comorbidities I may have.

Wow.. everyone's seem to be cheaper than what I have to pay. 16620.00. Includes pre op and post op for a year. I will have about 500.00 more in expenses after the surgery for lab fees. I paid cash 6 thousdand and financing the rest. I hope I feel it is worth it after next monday... :) I'm worried since my insurance has an exclusion on the policy... won't pay for complications either. I pray I don't have any.

      Pre-op Liquid Diet - Day 1
      Had my morning cup of 8 oz Regular Orange Juice. I am ready!!! I did have 3 bites of my fiance's cheesecake last night for dinner. It was so yummy but with my former sleeve it didn't allow me any more bites.

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

      Looking for new sleeve buddies! I’m 1.5 weeks post op and things seem to be getting a little difficult! I actually WANT food again eghh! Honestly, I feel like you don’t truly understand this process unless you go through it! Don’t be shy, say hello and let’s support each other during this journey 🙂

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
