My first surgery which was in 2004 was anterior/posterior surgery. I was in the hospital for 12 days. The whole bill including doctor's, hospital, etc.....was around $250,000.
I am just now getting the bills in on my last surgery in May 2007. It was not as extensive as the one in 2007 and I was only in the hospital 7 days. So far, they are a little over $133,000.
