Arm surgery

Hi , my name is Ryan . In January 2020 I weighed at 330lbs by October 2020 I weighed at 165lbs  I currently weigh 152lbs. Due to the amount of weight I lost ( 177lbs ) I have a significant amount of loose skin on my upper arms that have been breaking me out in rashes and chafing. I’m also unable to properly inject my medication into my arms to reach the muscle due to the excessive amount of loose skin therefor im unable to utilize my medication fully as I need. My arms also have been getting extremely swollen at times when I try to inject my meds, they’ve been  causing clots . It would mean a lot if anyone can help me during these difficult times. I know that the pandemic has allowed if not some , many of us including myself struggling with bills and other expenses & therefore I would like to apologize for the burden or inconvenience it may cause some to possibly feel. A single dollar or a share would mean a lot . The money won’t be going towards silly stuff or anything that isn’t a priority . Just to affirm those who may be curios . I’m also not looking to raise more than I need. My surgery was originally scheduled for April 6th , 2021 then it was pushed up to April 13th , 2021 and due to the lack of funds I had to push it back a little further . I have some money for the surgery saved up as of now, I just need a little bit of help trying to raise the rest .I’ve also been selling some of my valuables to try to raise money as well , I have my moms necklace which I’ve been wearing for the past 7 years since she’s passed & thought about pawning it but I can’t allow my self to give up the last physical thing I have of her left . originally my insurance company was going to cover it but they decided that I’d be responsible for a portion due to the insurance stating that the procedure is cosmetic when my doctors have tried to advocate stating that the surgery is medical and considered continuing care . Not only does the loose skin not allow me to properly inject my medication , it is also causing a few other medical issues along with body dysphoria due to my disgust with my loose skin that was left behind .  Anything truly helps . I would appreciate it very much . & those who can’t donate I understand and I appreciate your time reading my story . Thank you all and God bless . Sending Much love to all ✨
