Spinal surgery

Hello everyone I feel awful doing this but have no option, I have been in a bad way with my lower back for 12 yrs I have 3 bulging discs in Lumbar unfortunately for me my neck deteriorated first meaning I got a neck fusion 2 metal plates, as I was passing out all the time, so had to get neck fusion 2 plates, while all along my back just got worse, and surgeons weren't taking any notice so 10 yrs down the line one disc is compressing spinal cord which means there's days my legs just cnt carry me and cnt use bathroom anyway I had to go private as NHS jyst weren't doing anything they had me on waiting list for urgent spinal surgery as disc is sitting on Equada equina nerve which means severe severe bowel bladder dysfunction and walking, there's days I cnt get out of bed, lucky when I went private to a pain specialist in Dublin he helped me with spinal injections and stem cell treatment, I was ment to get surgery this year but due to covid there will be no spinal surgeries for at least 2 yrs and I have got worse not even an hours sleep as Morphine does nothing now and cnt get any more spinal injections My pain management friend from Dublin has arranged for me to go to abroad for surgery and he is going to accompany me as I have no one to go with me so the Surgery is going to cost 2 Thousand pounds plus flights which will probably be about £300 I haven't Been able to work but have scrimbed and saved 1 thousand If anyone can help at all even £1i would be eternally grateful I suffer from Dnt know whether it's Fibromyalgia or Polymyalgia I'm getting a biopsy done as I have brain Anyuresm they found while doing neck surgery so could be related to Polymyalgia and I have Osteoarthritis in all my joints I'm just trying to get a bit of quality if life back so I dnt end up in a wheelchair as I live on my own
I feel awful setting this up as things are hard for everyone with Covid and money is scarce for everyone and scary as well
Thank you for taking time to read and God Bless x
