Spent around 25k for hospital bills (I think 29 supposedly but it was shouldered by philhealth).
It was relatively cheap for a surgery. Tama ba? I was confined at Manila Doctors. We chose a private room P2200/day, stayed for two days only..
I was initially hesitant at first kasi I only go to Medical City all the time - but my OB told me na sobra ang gagastusin namin doon.
And since, we cannot use our healthcards, we really have to be on the practical side. Our doctor told us na mas matutulungan niya kami to lower expense if sa Manila Doctors, anyway siya pa din naman ang gagawa and all.
Professional fee varies kung ano yung nakita/ginawa sa procedure. It's around 45-60k. That's for three doctors.
My OB si Dra. Sua-Lao. Who's yours? Make sure Laparoscopy Specialist siya. Well, yes it's true that easier to find out kung anong problem with us if we undergo lap. Ang main reason for lap is diagnostic first. From there, since may cut ka na, andun na sila, they can do other procedure na kung ano man ma-discover.
Yes, they always say that there's a higher chance of getting pregnant after lap because parang "nalinis/na-overhaul" ka. I was put on medicines after my lap because not all cysts were cauterized. So technically, I only got my period back May 30 - yun pa lang ang officila start ko ng TTC after lap. Hopefully, I am pregnant this cycle (think positive!)
Also, kung hindi mo pa nagagawa [textspeak!] HSG, I suggest you tell your OB na isabay yung pag chack ng fallopian tubes. That was done to me, save na sa expense, save pa sa sakit - isahan na lang.
