I'm raising funds to pay for pelvic organ prolapse surgery that NHS failed to diagnose me with for 2 years until 08/02/2022.

I'm trying to raise enough funds so that I can urgently book surgery to relieve me of the pain Ive been in since February 2020. I live in the United Kingdom where citizens have to rely on state healthcare. My primary care refused to refer me to a specialist for a year. I had to battle beurocracy to just get a referral. On 08/02/2022 I was finally diagnosed by a specialist surgein. I have a pelvic organ prolapse & need surgery to correct my condition. A surgery date could be a year away. The pain I've been has progressively got worse over time. I had to quit my job in September 2021 & I'm now trying to survive on Universal credit. The funds raised  will cover the cost of a prolapse operation & travel to London where the only surgeon in the UK is available for the operation I desperately need.
