However, in the last 20 plus years, I have developed new illnesses as a direct result of the pharmaceuticles used to treat the disease, I have had countless hospitalizations and I have also had multiple surgeries. Including a surgery last May in which they removed two sections of my intestines that were completely blocked and pened up another section and scraped out the scar tissue before it was sewn back together. Due to many complications, that surgery took much longer to recover from than the doctors had expected.
Recently, a MRI confirmed that I have another narrowing of the small bowel that may become completely blocked off and that the doctors would like to remove via surgery. I am currently on multiple prescribtions that have seriously dangerous potential side effects, including leukemia. Speaking as honestly as I can, I don't want any more surgeries if I can avoid it. I also don't want to take these dangerous chemicals anymore. However, I also don't want to go through life in constant pain not knowing when I will end up back in the hospital for an extended time.
Therefore, I have talked to my doctors and convinced them to let me try a natural holistic treatment that is helping a lot of people put their illness into remission. Of course, natural organic ingrediants can be expensive. The reccommended 90 day treatment will cost me between $1500 and $2000. Since it is alternative, it is not covered by insurance. In addition, due to all of my hospitalizations, and technically being unemployed since August, I'm flat broke with tons of medical debt.
This is why I am asking for your help. Any help would be so greatly appreciated! One way or another I am going to give this treatment an opportunity to do the magic that it has for so many others. However, I could really use your support to make things a little easier on me finacially and possibly remove that cause of stress. Anything I raise over the cost of the treatment will go to a Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis charity as I plan to do a charity bicycle ride in August.
Thank you for taking the time to read this, and as always, thank you so much for the continued support. Much love!
