Thu Jul 14, 2022, 12:13 PM

I'm having bariatric surgery next week and trying to prevent from becoming homeless.

My health condition started with a rare lung disease called Pulmonary Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis. Cysts filled my lungs, I was on oxygen, and didn't have the lung function to be able to move much. I gained a lot of weight and now I have been diagnosed with Lipedema. Lipedema is a painful fat disorder. It's not really my fault I am like this. I am explaining this because someone from DU who I will not call out here.. posted on my facebook that I should get a job and stop begging for money. I thought I do owe people a more detailed explanation of what is going on in my life, no matter how embarrassing it is.

I'm having Duodenal Switch Procedures - SADI-S surgery a week from today on 7/21/22. I'm 7 days into my fat free milk diet. I can having nothing but fat-free milk for 14 days to shrink my liver for a safer surgery. Because I also have Lipedema, there will have to be more surgeries in the future to get rid of the remaining painful fat.

On top of the health issues, being on the brink of homelessness, my son who just lost his step father, Tommy has been disowned by his bio dad and bio family. Tommy came into my life when my son was 4, Tommy was his dad, they were close. My son is gay. It's not a big deal to me and wasn't to Tommy but his bio father is Egyptian and Muslim. My son's father snooped in his laptop while my son was visiting him. That whole side of the family instantly disowned him. He is devastated. We're going through a lot. I thought I needed to explain more of what is happening after getting told to get job and stop begging. I promise you, this is not easy. I don't want to ask. It's a lot easier to try and deal with this now than later if I have an eviction on my record. If you have a little extra, please help me. I do genuinely appreciate all the help I get.

P.S please forgive my grammar. I'm not a good writer.

This is my gofundme or Paypal to avoid fees. mary.wheeler055@gmail.com

I really wish I could donate. I will kick the thread from time to time.

My mom is in a similar situation with a foreclosure. Her lawyer, who is expensive to keep, can help for a while. But the time will come when she has to move. And she would be better off moving when she can find a place. I am also autistic, so we have some similarities in our stories.

22. I have lipedema as well. It's a very difficult condition.

Iím curious (and you donít have to share. Iíll understand) about what you were told about gastric bypass and lipedema. It wonít address the problem, though I know there may be other non-lipedema weight to shed. It is debilitating and painful for sure. Iím trying to figure out whether to have the liposuction procedures. Insurance often doesnít cover it.

This may well not be a suitable GD discussion but I thought Iíd mention that youíre not alone. I assume you know about Lipedema Simplified and all the recommendations?

23. Lipedema

I was told that I would lose weight with this surgery but not anywhere near as much as someone who doesn't have it. I would need liposuction after. UnitedHealthCare was sued in a class action lawsuit for not covering liposuction for lipedema and lost. I don't know about Lipedema Simplified, I was just diagnosed in April. I found a DR. at OHSU who told me how to go about doing everything to get UnitedHealthCare to pay. I have UnitedHealthCare with my medicare advantage.

25. Well that's good news! I have them as well.

Yes, check out the Lipedema Simplified website. And Dr. Karen Herbst. Sheís one of the best in the field, not with liposuction but with everything having to do with the condition itself. As with most things thereís a lot of stuff out there, some of which I believe in more than others, but itís at least getting some research and potential treatment studies.

27. That's okay. I can imagine. There are FB groups where you can share.

Frankly I donít go on them much any more. You can find some helpful advice but thereís a lot of diagnosing en absentia too and varying recommendations that I think are better from a professional. But you do get a good idea whatís out there re compression, MLD, surgery, etc.

26. Dear BlueLucy

I can't believe all this is happening to you at the same time. What a challenging situation!

I hope you live in a state or county where there are social services to help you. Some states are helping with rent back-payments, others have medical and prescriptions covered. For sure, you should not be evicted now that you are facing surgery and urgent medical issues. The fact that your son is gay should not matter one iota.

I want to donate however I'm retired and living on a fixed income, so things are tight right now. I'll be happy to help you next month. Also I'm glad that other DUers are able to help right now.

Please ask around about state and county social services. If you don't know, it's OK, Post something here on DU and I promise you SOMEBODY here will be able to tell you where to get help in your area.

Good luck dear.

30. Thank you!

I live in Cowlitz County in Washington State. I moved here two years ago from Portland OR. I did apply for rent help here at Lower Columbia Cap which is the only place that does rent assistance here. I was denied because it was not COVID related (This is a RED area). I know it would not have been this difficult if I still lived in Portland. Also, there is a 2 month waitlist now even for COVID related.
My son being gay doesn't matter to me at all. It's just that he lost his dad who raised him in home day to day and now his bio father has rejected him, disowned him. The way he did so was incredibly cruel.

I appreciate your hugs and kind words.

78. It was rough for me.

I've been in such pain, I have not been able to come online or even think. I was dealing with an infection as well of the surgery. This surgery is not as easy to do as some say. Maybe, I have a low tolerance for pain or maybe the infection prevented me from healing. Today is the first day that I feel like I am finally on the other side of this. I've been really weak, unable to drink any protein drinks or even much water. I've had to have several IV infusions this week but finally, yesterday... I drank 2 Premier protein drinks and three 16 oz bottles of propel water.

80. Healing will be slow. Maybe Juven may be your friend. Ask your doc. It's for healing and used by

top wound centers across the country. Made by the makers of Ensure. Check it out.

I have use it for serious bed sores and wounds for my mom as prescribed by Adventist Wound Center in MD.

81. I looked at Juven briefly just now.

It sounds wonderful but expensive. I'll look into it more.

87. Thank you so much!

I had to go to the ED last night for a IV infusion but I am OK.. I feel like I am now on the other side of this and recovering. I can't wait til next week when I can have something other than protein drinks and water or propel or Gatorade zero. Next week I will be able to add yogurt, pureed beans... That sort of thing.

82. Fucking religion strikes again.

It's a pox on the planet.

I'm so sorry about all your hardships and that your son's bio father did that to him.

83. Thank you!

It's really hard. My husband who was my son's stepdad since he was 4 passed away. They were very close. Now, his bio father doing that to him. My son has been expressing fits of rage, I know what is causing it and he is in counseling but it's not easy to witness.

86. How horrible. Your son and you have been through too much

I am hoping things get better. Weíre alike in the adversity we face. And being autistic makes things even harder.
