Update... 10/8 ok doctor says she wants the surgery done by the end of next week so let's do this! She also suggested doing just a full hysterectomy in which I said no that will have to wait till I get insurance... If 126- 200 people donated between $10 and $40 I would have enough for the surgery by the end of next week. My cousin sent $500 yesterday and another cousin is mailing a check not sure for how much. The doctor changed my medication night before last and now I am having heavy bleeding just like when all this started. Please help if you are able.
The bleeding started again this morning. I don't know what to do anymore. I am so weak I barely made it to Church this morning.
Hey everyone this is Shea. My first two days out of the the hospital were great and the last three not so good. I am very very weak. I went to Lone Star circle of Care on Friday yesterday, to try to get help with financial part of the surgery. Unfortunately I do not qualify because I just got approved for nine more weeks of unemployment which was like 5,000 and something dollars. If I didn't have to pay rent every month and a phone bill and car repairs I could probably save enough money to come up with the $5,600 needed to have the surgery over the next several months. However we all know that's not happening as I cannot live anywhere for free. Here's the deal in a nutshell. I have never had female problems this is all sudden and new over the last 2 months. I have a fibroid in my uterus that's bleeding. I have a polyp in my uterus that's helping make me bleed and my uterus wall is thickening which the doctor calls hyperplasia. She said that she needs to get in there and remove the polyp and the fibroid and scrape out the lining of my uterus. This procedure is called a Dilation and Curettage or D&C. because I smoked for over 30 years and because I had an aunt that died at the age of 47 from cancer she wants it done ASAP. I do not have insurance, I cannot get insurance at the moment and the medication that they have me on to stop the bleeding is causing me to eat 24/7. I don't even want to get on the scale to see how much weight I've gained in the past week and a half. I hate asking people for money I really really really do it sucks and I apologize but I need the help if you can please either donate or share or give me some information on someone who can help me create a fundraiser like with auction items and stuff like that. I need to get this done as soon as possible. I want to thank everyone for their prayers and donations. I trully trully appreciate it. If anyone has any questions please don't hesitate to call me on messenger if you have my cell phone number you can call me I cannot put it on here because GoFundMe will delete any of that information but you can reach me on Facebook Facebook messenger text phone thank you all so much., almost 8, weeks ago Shea began bleeding with what she thought was a normal period.
Endometrial hyperplasia is an increased growth of the endometrium. Mild or simple hyperplasia, the most common type, has a very small risk of becoming cancer. It may go away on its own or after treatment with hormone therapy. If the hyperplasia is called “atypical,” it has a higher chance of becoming a cancer.Mar 27, 2019

For almost 8 weeks, she has continued to bleed heavily, to the point that she is currently at the ER waiting to find out if her hemoglobin levels are going to require a blood transfusion.
On August 2, the bleeding began. Three weeks in, the bleeding became worse so Shea went to the doctor. After a pelvic ultrasound and a biopsy, she was told that she has an Embedded Fibroid in the Uterine Wall and a Polyp in the Uterus.
The doctors recommend emergency surgery - A D&C and a Hysteroscopy, but they will not preform the surgery without payment!
Since her first doctor visit the bleeding has increased, causing Shea to visit the doctor two more times and the ER twice. She has been in and out of the doctor and ER for a total of 5 times in two weeks. As I mentioned above, she is currently in the ER (9/19/2020) waiting for hemoglobin test results and a possible blood transfusion.
Please, if you can donate anything, it will be appreciated! Without the surgeries, Shea will die from blood loss! Pray for Shea, that the bleeding stops. Please share this with everyone you know. Anything helps! The paperwork included is from her last ER visit, two days ago. Thank you, anything helps!
