Help Seth in his battle with, RSD & CRPS

This is Seth's story. I met Seth in February of 2018, everything was great, until it wasn't. In June of 2018 Seth got injured and had to have surgery in September of 2018 to have a bone removed in his right ankle. By the time the bone was removed it had already cut through ligaments and muscle tissue. After post op recovery and months of physical therapy, he was still not able to walk or stand for long periods of time. Later after seeing another dr, having new images and tests done we found out that his main ligament that holds the ankle joint to the foot is over stretched and can not be fixed. So with that issue it has caused the bones to bleed and not be properly held in place, which causes constant swelling and pain and makes daily life a struggle at times. Now, he has a new issue. While recovering from the very beginning with everything he has dealt with up to this point, he has over compensated on his left foot and has now cause new issues. Today we found out the he has Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) Syndrome & Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) in both feet, (the link below will explain in further detail.) With this condition it has now made it impossible for him to stand or walk on his feet, he is literally having to crawl on his hands and knees to get around. He is in such excruciating pain that even the simplest touch of a blanket on his feet nearly brings him to tears. Unfortunately there is no cure for what he has, it can be manged with medication and nerve blocking injections. He will no longer be able to work, and we are considering if I need to go to part-time so I can be able to help take care of him. The funds raised will go to medical and monthly expenses until he is able to claim disability. Any donations are appreciated and we thank you all so much for your support and kindness. Thank you for taking the time to read his story and for sharing! https://www.health.ny.gov/diseases/chronic/reflex_sympathetic/
