Help make Amanda whole again.

I am a 30 year old mother of 3. I had a tubal ligation in 2004 after my youngest son was born. Almost instantly I started suffering from horrible symptoms. The worse one being chronic pelvic pain.

I have done some research over the years and everything leads to Post Tubal Ligation Syndrome. Only problem is, most doctors will not recognize this as being a true problem. From my research, I have found that having a Tubal reversal can correct these problems.

Although I work, as does my husband, I do not have health ins. I finally broke down in early April and went to a Gyn just to see if I was "crazy" or if there could possibly be some underlying cause for these symptoms. To my surprise she told me that although she had never heard of PTLS what I was explaining to her could very well happen. After the exam, it was determined that I had a lot of adhesions (internal scar tissue) from the tubal and that was most likely the cause of my symptoms that needed to be removed. Her exact words were "If money wasn't an issue, I would schedule a Lap today."

A lap procedure costs somewhere in the ballpark of $8000. A tubal reversal costs $5900 and ANY and ALL "problems" are addressed once they are "in." My husband and I have tried to save money since we found out but every time we get a little saved something comes up that is a little more important at the time. ANY donation is greatly appreciated. It doesn't matter if it is $1. It is more than I have towards surgery now!

I just want to be ME again. I am so tired of hurting. I want to be able to run and play with my boys like I used to instead of laying around TRYING to stay as comfortable as possible.
