Is it much higher in price? Is the price, what you thought it would be for all these quotes? I have no idea how much it will cost. Is there anyway you could let me know a ballpark figure? Just want to see if it will be doable, since insurance will not cover it. Thanks

I honestly did not know what to expect as far as price quotes. So I was pleasantly surprised that both quotes were very reasonable. One just under $10,000 and one just over. I'm in California and everything is expensive here, so depending on where you are, you may find prices significantly lower.

Oh one other thing that happened during this visit. They gave me a robe to put on so the doctor could examine me and when I first saw it, I had a flash of the old anxiety that it wouldn't fit. And then I realized that's not an issue anymore! I'm really not extra-big anymore. Imagine that!

Thank you for the info. I honestly had no idea about the expense. I hope it is lower for me. I am in New Hampshire.

I can relate to this. I hated when they gave me the robe to wear. It was always too small. I always had to wear two of them. One going fwd, and the other backwards. It must have felt so good!

Isn’t that crazy how your mind still sees yourself?!!
I still don’t see myself as small but I know I am bc of the size I wear. Def a mind bender. Congrats to you! Your head will catch up w your body eventually.

Welp, I have my surgery date. God willing, I will have my procedure on July 26, 2021. That gives me time to get ready and also have a little more tenure on my job (I just started in January). I paid my first 10% deposit today (fully-refundable as long as I give 30 days' notice of cancellation).

The doctor warned me that my stomach might not be completely flat, it might retain some roundness, which made me laugh. I'm not expecting a six-pack or anything, I just want to get rid of some of this bulk! Just being able to put on a one-piece swimsuit without a skirt will be monumental!

YAY! Congrats J! I wish you the best with this. I plan to do the same once I get to and maintain goal. Maybe before next summer.
