BROKE AND BUSTED

Back in 2015 I was in a bad car accident.  Upon impact the air bags deployed and hit me in the chest.   I was transported to the hospital where tests were done to make sure I was okay because I was in extreme pain at the scene.   I have breast implants and the concern was that they ruptured.  All tests came back okay except I had a huge hematoma by my right breast.  My breasts swelled up and I was one massive bruise from one side of my chest to the other.  I was released with pain pills and referred to a breast surgeon to follow up.  I followed up with Dr. William E. Deyden, M.D.,  another ultra sound was done and it was confirmed that I had a hematoma. I was told that if it did not dissolve on its own that I would need to come back and have surgery.  Well over time the hematoma did dissolve and the pain subsided.  It was a long process but eventually it healed and felt normal again.  
Well about 3 1/2 weeks ago I felt a sensation in my right breast and noticed  my implant was shrinking or deflating.  Not sure what caused it, I have been moving alot of items over the past few months.  I am not sure if lifting has impacted it as it was already in a weaken state from the accident.  I made an appointment with my plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Maurok , who did the implants originally.  He informed me that my right implant has ruptured and needs to be removed and replaced with a new one.   The left implant is fine.  Because this is considered cosmetic,  insurance will not pay for it.    As some of you may know,  I am in the process of a painful divorce and funds that were once available to me  have been intentionally  cut off.  I have exhausted all my savings because of my impending divorce, supporting myself with a single income and no financial help.    My credit has been impacted and I am unable to take out a loan.  The cost to remove and replace my implant is $2000.  The surgeon told me I need to have my surgery as soon as possible due to the concern of getting an infection and also the capsule or scar layer surrounding the implant will begin to shrink down around the deflated implant.  I am feeling defeated and scared because I need to have this surgerey immediately.  I have no money to pay for it and no other resources to turn to.    I would truly appreciate any help you can give.    Thank you so much.
