Hi my name is Birdii, You might know me as a friend or a coworker even!
(Everything raised will help pay for all of my surgeries, treatment, after recovery visits, and for my monthly bills including electric and medicine I need like my inhaler!)
I recently in the last few months have been experience horrible pain, to where even most of my doctors weren’t able to pin where it was coming from. Nausea, pain, and shortness of breath for months and even medicine couldn’t help heal it.
I recently went to the doctors office, and had two Ultrasounds done, one for my abdominal and one inner. Suddenly a few days later I get a few calls from the hospital, and my main provider.
They told me, “You have something very rare foryour age, We can only see a small portion of it. Itcurrently is as big as 18 Cm, pushing all of your organs in. Your stomach is solid, and this is severely uncommon for your size, and conditions.”
(Note taken from visit and scans: Below)
18 cms is 7 inches big! That was just a partial shot. I was in such disbelief, and was told it could definitely push toward being cancerous because I went from 110 Lbs to 140 in less than 3 months with my abdominal area stretching to such an uncomfortable size it’s impossible to lay or even wear clothes.
But, about 2 weeks later, and 4 hospital checkups later, I went in for an MRI.
I had an IV inserted, and was in the MRI tunnel for about an hour and a half. Those things are pretty loud.
I was later informed that suddenly it’s a lot bigger than we thought. ( I am waiting on a physical copy of my MRI scans) but, I was shown in the office a few days ago, it runs from under my right rib cage to my lower abdominal area until it hits my bladder. It now is as big as a papaya! I was told I will have surgery on the 14th, with removing most of my organs down below, and have had to already pay some major money forward for my procedures to get done and using what little incomeI have left.
I’ve had to pay,
88 dollars for bloodwork,
586 dollars for my Ultrasound,
120 For other medical visits,
Just paid 1,106 for one part of the surgery,
Inpatient stay will run me a few more thousand
I will be hospitalized for 2-4 days
Off of work under the ADA, so I will not be receiving income of any kind while I am off of work, recovering.
I would appreciate so much if you could help even donate one dollar toward my cause. Recovery will be long and hard for me, including that this could possibly be cancerous and only 2% of the population of my age group are even diagnosed with a tumor this large.
Thank you so much for your kindness, and Reshare this if you’re able.
