Finding a pro bono Surgeon for chronic debilitating back injury
I am in desparate need of back surgery. I wen to the emergency room where they found several ruptured disks,herniated disks, buldging disks alond with an extreme amount of scar tissue from two previous laminectopmies. Also found were:
several disks have completely colapsed upon each other, an extreme narrowing of the nerve canal to the point of my nerve being almost severed. The daily pain in indecsribable. I take pain meds, but, franklt, they don't do much. I am at the point of suicide because I can't take the pain much more. I have applied for medicaid and am about 3/4 of the way through. The last stumbling lock is they need a surgeon to say yes, I am disabled at this time, and yes I need surgury. But I can't find any surgeon who will see me without insurance, and I am low income and cannot aford to pay. I live in Roseville, Michigan. If anyone can help me I would be very grateful. I am racing with time before I get to the point where I can't take it anymore and leave my husband a widower and my children motherless. Please help me.....
