Over two years ago I was diagnosed with cancer. I have been in and out of hospitals, had a 15cm hematoma that burst my stomach open which, in turn, cause all sorts of complications. With a racing heart of 170 bpm and heavy breathing I was put through extensive scanning and injected with a large amount of CT dye (that I subsequently become allergic to) as they thought I had a PE. After 18 hospitals and every tests under the sun: VQ scans, CT xrays, ultra sounds, and many many blood tests I cannot count, as well as heart specialist, Hematolgists, and GP’s I finally had enough of ppl not listening to me and telling me it was all in my head. I had anxiety apparently that never went away and My BP was sitting daily at 180/110.
After all this I was sent home with no meds and told it was all because of my daily anxiety.
After getting to point that my mental status was deteriorating and I started thinking and feeling things I have never felt before, I knew, without a doubt, that something was very wrong with me I have never felt. Every day I was becoming worse. Heart rate going thru roof and a loss of 34 kg (65 pounds) in 3 months, and feeling ADAH and bipolar. I went to GP and said HELP ME.
At this point they actually tested my thyroid. When bloods come back with in 12hrs, I was raced to ER as my levels were 3x normal and I was having what is called a Thyroid Storm and in thyrotoxicosis.
I now have heart issues from this being left untreated for months. I have PTSD and an auto immune disease called Graves Disease hyper thyroid and with a multi-nodular goiter with 32 nodules.
After all of this I was then diagnosed with thyroid cancer. I recently had my thyroid, however, due to the lack of proper treatment in the beginning, I have developed delved TED (thyroid eye disease). This causes my left eye to distend outward and my eye ball to become fixed into upward stare. I currently have so much swelling around my optic nerve it has now compromised my eye sight. I just started an extensive IV steroid treatment (1000mg of steroids every 3 days) and my right eye has now started to become inflamed. The new medication that I need is a massive $10,000 per injection and is a last resort. This medication is not fully covered. I need 3 of theses as well as an endocrine specialists and surgeons, Orbit decompression, squint surgery. Not to mention a surgery in late sept/early oct for lymph node removal.
Needless to say things have become very hard for myself and my family. I am unable to work at his point, insurance pay barely covers bills, credit cards are maxed out, and a loan hanging over my head.
I am now asking for help for first time in my life. Anything will help and every dollar counts. I would be ever so grateful for anything that people would be willing to pitch in.
You never realize how much you need your eyes until sight becomes an issue. I just want to see my kids grow up.
This possibly is one of the hardest things he has had to face… Asking for help as he def is a do it yourself kind of guy. Sometimes though even the strongest most self sufficient need a hand up. So please if yall can help please do every little bit helps. ❤
