I had mine done 6 years ago. It was around 20,000 I was in the hospital 3 days.
However, I would think LONG and hard before doing this. Do as much research as you can on this. I'm not saying its not worth it, but your life will change.
I will be honest about the cons:
Can't burp, can't throw up, gas, bloat, and mine has slipped and has to be re-done which I will not do. The not "THROWING" up part I think is the worse.
Before you have this done, go and by a heating pad, food grinder, beno.
I'm back on PPI's....Here in Chicago they don't do many anymore, there is something new out there, can't remember the name of it that is much better then the Nissen.
I wish you much luck
