    Hi there, I was wondering if you would mind if I asked how much the surgery cost and what is the wait time like. Thanks so much. I am from Manitoba and am considering going to Mexico to have it done if I cant get it here.

    I had surgery through West Coast Bariatric however mine was covered by BC Medical not sure if they do the surgery privately but I doubt it.

    The sleeve and the roux-n-y are both covered under normal bc med if you have a bmi over 40 or I believe 35 if you have serious health concerns such as diabetes, heart disease or such. There is a 2 year wait list for West coast but it is worth it. Start using PAL (google it) it is a BC government program while you wait as they are excellent I lost 75 lbs while waiting for surgery.
