Help me with my medical bills

Donation protected
On April 4, 2023 I had to undergo surgery to remove six or so inches of my sigmoid colon. There was a dangerous polyp there that kept growing back and couldn't be removed during a colonoscopy due to its depth and flatness. It had high-grade dysplasia, which means it was at great risk of developing into cancer if not completely removed.

My insurance isn't great. My part-- after the insurance has paid their part-- was over $10,000.00. I'm still paying on it, and will be for a very long time.

Then, without warning, on October 26 I developed a detached retina. The first thing the next morning I called an optometrist, they fit me in and called an ophthalmologist/surgeon who saw me as soon as I could get to his office and they did the surgery that day.

They saved my sight in that eye, although I can't see well until some things heal, and I have cataract surgery. Yeah, I know.

That's great, but that means more medical bills when I'm still dealing with the bills from the colon surgery.

And then... on December 5th, I suddenly realized I was passing a kidney stone. Within 30 seconds I was on the floor in agony. I'd been through this in 2015, so I knew what was happening. I ended up in the emergency room overnight. The stone was too big to pass, so on December 20, I had surgery to remove it. Which involved follow-up appointments. I may or may not keep all of them, depending on finances.

The bills keep on coming and piling up. It's pretty bad!

Any help will be greatly, immensely appreciated!

Thank you so much.
