Thank you for that additional information.
I am in the USA.
Unfortunately, as to the cost of surgery to repair this issue, only an rough estimate can be established. In order to get any true numbers the surgeon would have to examine your wife and make a surgical plan. Then the hospital billing office, using the diagnosis codes and surgical plan, would be able to give you a better idea of the costs -- barring any complications, stay in the ICU etc.
In my hospital surgical removal and replacement of exposed mesh with repair of the bladder and related structures, planning on a 3 day post-op hospital stay without complications would run between $US11,000 to $US20,000. She would require followup medical visits for at least 30 days and then, if all is going well, could be transferred to the care of a surgeon in her own country
I would expect it to be about the same in Australia......
You could safely use these numbers when applying for your Medical Treatment Visa.
Does this make sense to you?
