I now live in Rochester NY and had my surgery here. It cost about
$20,000 after the insurance company dickered with the hospital. Everything, except about
$150 was covered by insurance.
You might want to check out Colin45. He had his done in Thailand for about
$10k and his results are so good, I think he's even fathered two kids by now. ;-) (He might chime in here.)
I agree with your comment about
the "high tech to archaic" spread of the Japanese system. One minute you can be enjoying the warm spray and gentle drying breeze from a Toto washlet - and the next you pass a squat toilet in a train station.
Full of surprises.
