However, the third doctor agreed to do my surgery. This means I will be in the hands of the number 1 doctor in Atlanta who specializes in my condition and is top 10 in the entire world.
During my 7 hour surgery he will be removing both endometriomas. I will probably loose the other half of my right ovary as well as my right Fallopian tube if it is closed up as they suspect it probably is. The adhesions will be cauterized and scraped off of all my organs, bladder, and bowel. I may be having a bowel rescection which they will cut a portion of my bowel that's is too far damaged out and re-attach it together. I also risk loosing my appendix. But with this surgery if everything goes as planned it should be my last surgery for a long time and will buy me years of being able to have a kids one day. Finger crossed it works! It's a big life changing surgery for me and is extremely important to my health that I receive it and will end all of the pain I have been living with for quite sometime. I am supposed to have a 4 week recovery time with 1 week in the hospital and 3 weeks at home.
However, this new doctor does not accept my insurance and I am considered a self pay. My surgery is scheduled for July 25, 2017 at North side hospital. He is expensive and wants $10,000 the day of my pre-op or they will not do my surgery. I know it's a lot but he is my last hope and is going to try to help me save everything I can to be able to have children one day on my own. Lucky For me that my hospital stay will be covered under my $2,000 deductible under my insurance so that I have covered.
I did not want to have to turn to a go fund me and ask for help but even after months of saving I haven't even put a dent in what I need for my surgery. So I am swollowing my pride and asking for help. I have one month to figure out how I am going to afford this surgery.
Anything is appreciated even if it's just a simple prayer that this surgery is successful and goes as smoothly as possible.
Thank you all who took the time to read my story, it's a lot to put out there on social media but I've become desperate for help. It's going to be a long journey but I have faith that this will change my life for the better!! Thank you all and god bless!
