    After being told that I will have to wait a further 6 months for surgery, I am now looking at the option of travelling abroad, I do know someone who has travelled to the Czech Republic paying around £4,560 and are extremely happy with how the operation went and how everything was handled by the company they booked with.
    does anyone else have experience of travelling abroad for an operation before I make the final decision ?

    Hi there Elizabeth and welcome to the friendliest place around.

    I always make sure I’m honest about things so this is ONLY my own personal opinion:

    I would never have contemplated it as I was a very poorly person by the time I came to have my bypass. Also, I would never, ever put money before health and safety. I could have saved £2,000 having my tummy tuck abroad last year but it’s a good job I didn’t as I had complications a little while after it that required me to visit the hospital three times a week. Therefore, if it were me, I would pay the extra and be 100% certain that I would get all the help I needed immediately. However, you are you. It is entirely your decision and one that will be respected by everyone on here.

    Hope this is helpful and that you are happy with your final decision.
