The treatment needed is called Endovenous Laser First Vein. Until I can get the treatment, I must continue to medicate and take care of the ulcers that are a side effect of the vein condition. This requires a trip to the doctor for a special cream to be put on my legs, and then to wrap my legs. This procedure alone is $250 per week. I have exhausted all my funds just keeping the ulcers medicated and wrapped.
I need the Endovenous Laser First Vein treatment immediately. The weekly treatment to keep my ulcers under control is simply a bandaid.
I must pay $6,000 in addition to my insurance claim in order to have the surgery.
I work 2 jobs which both require me to stand on my feet all day. At night, I come home, shower, medicate my legs, wrap my legs, and go to bed. The pain is excruciating. I'm very self-sufficient and I have a hard time asking for help. But, the pain is so bad now, I must.
The doctor says I will need to stay off my legs for about a month. I have set my goal for the surgery cost only, but if i should be so blessed as to go over my goal, the money will be spent very frugally to pay for my expenses during the time I am out of work.
I need the surgery NOW! Any donation to help me pay for this surgery will be so appreciated. Thank you for reading my story and God bless!
