From all my research and reading everyone's wonderful posts I realized getting the Band isnt just about getting it and forgetting. I understand there is this thing called "fills" that determines the restriction on the band and so on...

I just want to make sure i can afford this before i jump on the band-wagon (hehe) I can manage paying for the procedure but how much do the fills usually cost? thank you all in advance.

um - its not the fills that are expensive for me! Its buying all the new clothes!!!!!!!!!! Going from a 14/16 to a 6 is EXPENSIVE!

But honestly - it depends if u plan to go back to the OCC. I cant even remember how much that costs now...sorry - and cost of flights

For me to get a fill (in Alberta) it costs me anywhere from 500 to about ohhhh 1300, depending on flights at the time. Hotels are pretty cheap there. Just if you want to watch your $$ dont go shopping in san diego lol - the stores are fun!

I GET THEM LOCALLY FOR 125.00

I THINK THE OCC, UNDER FLUOROSCOPY IS 100.00. SO THEY'RE REASONABLE

I had to buy a package. Which was $1000.00 up front to the surgeons office. That covers 4 fills for me with them. Each time I go, I give another $50.00 to the floro department. So, fills 1-4 cost $300.00 a pop. After that, the price drops and I pay $75.00 to the surgeons office and $50.00 to floro. Fills 5 and on will cost me $125.00. I called around and priced everyone in my area. This was the best deal.

I live in the mid-west so flying to TJ is not practical for my fills. I have a family and a career here. Plus I like the fact that I have a surgeon locally in case I need immediate care. They are alright here. Not nearly the service you get in TJ.
