Amy's life saving surgery

I'm starting this go fund me page for my daughter amy, she was diagnosed last year with gastroparesis disease, in the short time after Amy was eventually diagnosed she has had to endure months in hospital, after being accused of an eating disorder and made to see a psychiatrist before any tests were done to confirm her diagnosis! Whilst in hospital she was treated poorly, they made an attempt to place a NG feeding tube into her stomach, the first attempt was placed into her lung, on the second attempt they assumed it was successful, and told us she would go for an xray within 15 minutes to check the position of the tube, 9 long hour's past with amy suffering chest pains constantly & trouble breathing, they finally gave her the xray she needed in the first 15 minutes, the results came back to show they had placed the tube in her chest and not in her stomach, it was left for 9 hours just were her lungs branch off! After they corrected the error, she was then given 6 months out of date food directly fed into her stomach for 3 hours before amy started to vomit and checked the feeding bag herself! After 8 weeks of this and constantly suffering hypoglycemia attacks, amy got to a stable enough weight to come home, after promising me her mother they would try and take better care of my daughter. They agreed to see her every week to check her weight and blood tests, the letters an appointments never came, a few months later she took ill again, lost another 3 stone in weight & they eventually fitted her with a NJ feeding tube within her stay with them again amy suffered terrible care, and also got a blood clot on her lung whilst in hospital! She is now home again after her last stay, they have now told my daughter a woman of 29 years there is nothing else that can be done for her apart from make her comfortable, and give her the fluids in a drip until she regains enough strength to go home to her 2 son's, she hasn't got a life anymore and has not eaten a meal in two years, I'm afraid that if she doesn't get the operation she needs I'll lose my daughter & my grandsons will lose there mummy. She is slowly starving to death & us as a family can't sit & watch her die when she has so much to fight & live for. The NHS has refused funding for this operation as it's only got a success rate of 50% but what if amy is in that 50% of a success rate! she takes atleast 32 tablets a day, plus morphine pain patches & oral morphine and injections daily, she has to rely on alot of people now and amy is not used to that, she tries her best to carry on but every day is a constant battle, she projectile vomits atleast 50x daily and is now starting to lose her teeth due to acid damage, this disease has taken everything away from my daughter but I'm not going to let it take her life! It has also caused other autoimmune diseases too such as hypoglycemia every day is a risk she could fall into a hypoglycemic coma & has to check her bloods every 4 hours but every half an hour when she can't  manage her fortisips which along with the medication are keeping her alive, she also has rheumatoid arthritis & raynauds disease she is now also being tested for scleroderma and already has scarring on her left lung! Please help me raise some of the amount so we can pay the rest monthly! This is her last chance of survival. She has her first consultation on the 29th of November & just for that she's paying £200. Thankyou everyone the more shares the better
