Need surgery on my back but have no money or insurance and live in Texas
I am a 55 year old respiratory therapist, I had surgery on my back in 2010 and after 4 months went back to work as a respiratory therapist. The job I had for 12 years ended in May 2015, and I went to work temporarily as a boat mechanic as I had mechanic experience in the past. In April of 2016 I got a new job up in Houston Texas doing respiratory again but my back had been sore since November 2015 from working on boats. After about 3 days on the new job I had to quit because I could barely walk or even stand up I went back to the neurosurgeon who worked on my back in 2010, paying full price for the office visit, and told me I had problems in the same area the problems are extreme pain I have to stand hunched over pain down my left leg along with numbers numbness tingling and a cold feeling. Unfortunately I have no insurance and since I had to quit my new job almost 5 months ago I now have no money and have no idea how I can get fixed so I can get back to work. The hospital in Houston where I had gotten the job said they would hold a position for me but only for so long. What can I do? I used the last money I had in my bank account to pay bills last month and now we are relying on my son's part-time job income to pay the bills but that isn't going to work I am desperate I have no idea how I can get fixed so I can get back to work and become a productive citizen.
