Hi guys. These gofundme pages come around so often that I’m embarrassed to even post this. It was made my mom, because I’m embarrassed. Why? I’m not exactly sure, I just don’t like the thought of asking potential strangers for money, and to be honest having my friends see it is a little off putting.
I write about a lot of stuff on here, mostly being my medical issues. I’ve dealt with endometriosis for 10 years now. With no relief after my past two surgeries within a year of each other I needed to search for an answer. I was ready to have a hysterectomy to make my pain go away, but the thought of not having children of my own one day breaks my heart. Since having these surgeries I’ve since been dealing with bladder issues as well. I’ve had an external and internal “nerve stimulator” aka “pacemaker” for my bladder. But with no help, I had it removed. Leaving me with more scars.
I found a doctor on “The Doctors” show, I was randomly sitting with my grandmom when I heard the word endometriosis and automatically turned my head to the TV. With the name of the doctor, I looked him up. He is one of a handful of doctors in the US who performs a different type of surgery for endometriosis. This doctor is based in NYC and I’m in Philadelphia, so it’s not too far, I’ve never travelled to meet a doctor, but I had to meet him.
I met with him on Monday and from just looking at pictures I brought from prior a prior surgery he just told me that I was completely burned on the inside, he could see spots that my other doctors have missed and not even attempted to access. But he looked me right in the eye and told me “I’m not a miracle worker, but I know I can take a lot of your pain away”. I was sold, until I found out the cost. Something I knew was coming but wouldn’t be sure how to handle. I thought you know I’ll figure it out. We’ll figure it out. But now it’s led to this post. I’m going to leave a link down below.
You don’t have to donate, you can donate if you’d like/can, if you even share it, it would mean the world to me. If you read this post, thank you. You truly do not know how much that means to me. Thank you for listening.
