End This Endometriosis Pain

My name is Nicola, and at sixteen years of age I first presented at my GP with what I now know was PCOS and endometriosis.
I have undergone 3 diagnostic surgeries and two operative surgeries between then and now.  I was told that the endometriosis in particular would likely return and need to be removed again.
At 37 years old now, I'm on 21 years of pain.
At my most recent appointment I came within a hair's breadth of being placed on the surgical list when the decision was over ruled by the consultant in charge who wanted me to have the Mirena coil placed as another go at solving the problem medically instead of surgically.  Despite it needing surgical intervention before.  And despite the fact that the scarring runs so deep that it's highly unlikely to work well.
Owing to personal, historical reasons, I did not want the coil placed within me but I've agreed to it against my better judgement for fear that if I do not, then the surgical option will be denied to me if I don't try it.  The side effects have left me nauseous and with a permanent headache.  
My quality of life has shrunk significantly over the years and I can no longer live with this debilitating pain, this random bleeding, these side effects.   
I would like to raise £3500 to enable me to go private for the surgery which will immeasurably improve my pain levels and thus give me back my life.
