I have Ehlers Danlos Syndrom, among others, and I have tried for years and years to loose weight. I need to because every joint aches and I cant function. I am only 31 but my body feels like 86. I have 3 wonderful children whoom wich I would love to be more active with. I have a great job with wonderful co-workers wich I have not been able to go to i over a year and a half. The Swedish healthcare said no to giving me this surgery do to that I weigh a little to little (BMI is supposed to be 40, or at least 35 but then you have to have a special disease in wich mine are not acounted) I have 33,5 and shifting. I cant put on more weight just to get the operation because it would restraine my body even more. Im on the brink on breaking and really need this surgery. I have tried around a 100 different medications to among other things stop or relief my chronic pain but I´m allergic to almost everything.
I need 8.900 euro for the operation itself and then around 500 more for other expences evolving the operation.
I just wanna be with my kids, go to work, enjoy the weekend and spend time with my fiancey.
My brain is 31 (or even sometimes 25) but my body is always 86 and deterriarating. I feel like I´m wasting my life mostly in bed and missing out on so much. So if you could find it in your heart to help me I would be forever greatful.
