Just over 6 years ago I was in an accident that damaged my legs quite badly which left me unable to walk for a couple of years, during this time I gained a lot of weight and then got stuck in a never ending cycle of pain in my legs because of the weight meaning my legs wouldn’t heal, the fatter I got the worse my legs got. I can’t exercise because of the pain, I’ve tried weight loss programs, tablets, and shakes, nothing has worked. Surgeons even considered amputating my legs and I was even due to have experimental surgery on them in April but due to covid this was cancelled. I’ve gained over 15 stone in the last 6 years and no longer feel like myself, hell some days I no longer have the will to live like this anymore.
After a lot of research it seems the only way forward is bariatric surgery. The NHS wouldn’t consider me for it before COVID-19 and now they’re under so much strain I wouldn’t want to ask again. Going private is my only option but it’s expensive and this is why I’m asking for your help
