As some of my close friends and family may know, I’ve been battling a disease called endometriosis for many years now. Not only has it been a huge physical burden but also a financial one. I’ve just received the news that I need to have yet another surgery to remove the endo growing throughout my pelvis and this will be my 5th within 5 years.
Endometriosis affects 1 in 10 women. It’s a condition in which the tissue similar to the lining of the uterus grows outside of the uterus and causes pain and/or infertility amoungst other issues.
Around 3 years ago I had a routine laparoscopic surgery go very wrong at the hands of a so- called endo specialist in a public hospital. I suffered a massive pelvic infection and the damage caused still affects me daily. Unfortunately, I also have endo spreading throughout my pelvis affecting my ovaries, tubes, uterus etc, basically all my potential baby-making things. It’s upsetting all my organs ( RIP my appendix!) including my kidneys, hence the urgency to operate. So basically I have to have surgery to try stop the disease from spreading further, and to fix the damage that another doctor has caused.
I’m hoping to get any sort of help to try cover some of the $6000+ of my medical expenses as I’m having to see a private specialist. A spot has become available to me at the start of October and I’m desperate, basically!
I’m hoping by having this surgery I can live a relatively normal 30- something year old life that’s not burdened by chronic pain and fatigue.
If you can spare anything to help me i will be forever grateful! Thankyou
