Pamela´s Surgery Recovery

Raised by 58 people in 19 months

Hello All,

I never really understood how people would come up with the idea of starting a GoFundMe account until the time of need due to health issues and low resources came around with other problems to my 24 year old niece who is also a fairly new mom to a 7 month old little girl Scarlett.
Due to extensive back problems, pain and dificulty to perform day to day activities for at least the past 6 years, Pamela had breast reduction approved by her health insurance (Medicaid).

Timming wasn´t the best but having the surgery for free was something she couldn´t miss.
Surgery went  ok but about 10 days later , recovery started to get harder every day as you can see on the graphic but needed to be shown picture to make sure this doesnt sound just like comestic procedure done by a young girl.
The complications are not fully explained by the doctors and  time for it to heal has incresead a lot more than the expected , and will be keeping her away from work much longer than planned, so she is having a very hard  time planning to come up with rent , bills, provide to her baby and  72 yo grandmother who flew from Brazil to help her thru this, pay for all the transportation and medicines prescribed by her doctor to try to keep a infection that can become major away.
Any dolar and all the prayers will help a lot and we can´t thank you enough !
May God bless you and your family and we  hope to have better news soon!

Dear friends! After 10 days in the hospital, with a second surgery to clean out infection, IV with heavy antibiotics and a Wound Vacccum in we finally have seen light at the end of the tunnel. The healing has progressed tremendously and Pamela is feeling much better and confident she is on her way to a full recovery now.
We want to thank you all for so much support in so many ways. We still have a long road to go since she still has some time before being aloud back to work but we have faith in no time everything will be back on track! Scarlett is back home with her after 2 fun weeks in Houston, TX.
Have a great weekend everyone!

Pamela has been in the hospital and should be thru Monday. She has the wound vaccumm in the main wound (nipple) and the other one has been healing really well. We have heard a lot from the doctor's and nurses at the hospital she is in that is making us very very concerned about the care she received from her surgeon and his team during the 3 weeks before she was finally admitted at this hospital last Monday. Seems like they were hiding or ignoring signs of a really bad infection and actually up to now they often use the term "prevent" rather than "treat" if there was still not an infection, but then again she has been on 2 super strong intravenous antibiotic and had a second surgery to clean up infected tissue!
If anyone can refer a good medical malpractice lawyer, at this point we would to be thankful.
Scarlett still in Houston with me for at least another week.
God bless you all and pls keep prayers and positive vibes our way!

Surgery to clean up infection and prevent it to spread went well and we are excited to see a different plan for the wound treatment. They placed a "vaccumm" that drains automatically all the fluids and seems safer than dealing with changing gauzes and cleaning an open wound twice a day at home where we are never sure we are doing the right thing. She will be in the hospital for another day or 2...Thank you all for so much support in so many ways! God bless you all.

Everybody have struggles in this life. Hang in there Pamela and have faith in God for faith is what pleases the Lord. Faith is the assurance of things you hope for and the conviction of things not seen. Your hope is to heal from this wound and with faith you will. Believe that you received. God bless you and your family.
