Surgery recovery fund

I had a surgery in 2009 to repair POP and TVM was implanted. In 2010 I had surgery to repair mesh erosion.
In the last 3 years I have become increasingly ill as my body ejects this medical device classified as HIGH RISK by the FDA, none of us who had this implanted where informed of the irreversible damage it would cause.
My struggle to find a way to have any quality of life, not to mention shortening my years with my children is REAL!
I'm on disabilty, my daily functioning is deteroirating. I've been doing some research and there are some doctors out there who might be able to give me more time, maybe less pain and hopefully stop this war my body has raged against this deadly medical device.
My struggle is real and my hope is fleeting.
It has come to a point that if I want to avoid a wheelchair, continue to walk this world with my loves, I need to find that doctor.
My medicare will not cover these doctors, try different ways to manage the pain or traveling expenses.
I need help, thank you for taking time to read my plea.
This is my only hope as i've been waiting for a settlement from the manufactor of this device and it continues to be "delayed" and honestly is a pathetic slap in the face as it's not even enough to buy a nice new car, let alone take care of my medical needs.
