I would certainly consider it... it fact, I have.. considered it, that is. I told my Doctor and he made sure that I had the procedure done on the NHS, here in Great Britain. We are so lucky and blessed to have our NHS, all things went swimmingly well and I am grateful that my surgery was done here. However, if it had been turned down, I would have definately visited Turkey and paid for it. Yes, there are risks - but that did far outweigh the cost implications. It is having cut price private care. This would have made it affordable, but as it turned out, the surgery was provided free of charge - and I have a great support in place should I need it.
Some of the best health care is in less expensive countries... you just need to research them (which you should do anyway in your country), so as you can trust your life in their hands.
