My name is Samantha, I am a teacher and a single mom. I am asking for money to help me pay for my emergency breast surgery. I want to start by saying thank you for your consideration and generosity for sharing with people in need.
As a teen I developed extremely asymmetrical breasts one being an A cup and one being a C cup. When I graduated from college, I decided that I wanted to finally get them fixed and feel better about myself and get breast augmentation(implants).
However, 5 years later (this summer), after getting pregnant, and working to hard to get back to my pre pregnancy weight my implant ended up poking out of my breast, leaving my in a lot of sharp pain.
After speaking with the doctor who performed my surgery, they said it can happen over time specially in my case. The doctor told me that by moving my implants under the muscle it would take away the pain and leave a cushion so the implant would not poke through. In case you do not know insurance does not cover surgery deemed plastic even if it is an emergency, they only covered half of my anesthesia and hospital fee which was under $1000.
After spending over 10, 000 on this reconstructive surgery. I am now still left in the same terrible pain, and now the doctor claimed I needed another breast surgery to fix it. This pain is constant, I can’t even wear a normal bra, or sleep through the night without waking up in pain.
After hearing this I met with another surgeon for a second opinion. The second doctor told me that the original surgeon should have known moving the implant under the muscle wouldn’t be enough as there is not even enough tissue there to begin with, and he should have done a fat transfer to my breasts at the same time.
I am a single mom of a 1-year old boy, and a middle school teacher. I do not make much, but just enough that I do not get help from any program. It was hard enough to have to have to put 10,000 on a credit card for this last surgery, and now I have to some how pay that off ($400 a month) and come up with another 10,000 for another surgery in order to get rid of the pain, that was supposed to be taken care of already. Basically, I paid this doctor 10k to do a surgery on me where he fixed nothing and there is nothing I can do about it.
Thank you for hearing my story and considering helping me out. Although I am asking for $10,000 to pay for the surgery, I need to make the pain go away, anything you can do helps!! I am not greedy and asking for more, or even for help to pay of my credit card from the first time. I just am in pain and am begging at this point for help.
Please feel free to ask any questions. I would be happy to provide you with more details, evidence, etc. I have attached a picture of my current CareCredit bill for the first reconstructive surgery. I would be happy to provide you with further details about my surgery and any paperwork needed to prove to you that is what the money is being used for.
Thank you again. This would mean the world to me. Thank you for taking time out of your day to read this.
Thank you again,
