Its Karolina here personally wanting to thank everyone for all contributions and prayers as I have been battling the ongoing health issue. Without your love and support, I would not be able to get through this to even the slightest extent.
Up to date, in May I went to the Urgent Care for what I thought was a respiratory infection, but to my surprise it was another heart attack. I was admitted for 3 days and have missed countless hours of work since then. I recently found out that during that event, my ejection fracture has lowered by 5% over the last year, with mitral valve prolapse. I find out August 3 about procedures which include a catheterization, Mitral Valve replacement and a 5 year implant. The cardiac work up isn’t the only thing but it’s the most concerning. I am now showing more signs of MS as well as Auto-Immune disorders. There is a lot of tissue growth found in my head causing breathing issues but we are not sure what route to take (surgery or meds).
They have me on 36 pills a day roughly and that’s to keep me ‘safe’. Treatment and fixing the issue remain unknown but I have multiple doctors who would like to help me holistically. Given the nature of my on going medical debt, multiple people have asked that I update the goal.
To help you better understand,
-up to date roughly $35000 that has not been covered by TRICARE. This does NOT account for thousands out of pocket to pay and running my secondary insurance for billing as well.
I have been told to continue the treatments (IVs, Infrared Sauna, strict diet, Red Light Laser therapy) and try EBOO. With that being said, medical debt is only part of the issue. In order for me to seek out proper treatment for recovery, I need to be able to financially afford that. It costs about $1000 monthly to take care of IV’s and Sauna therapy alone.
This is only part of the burden, as the waiting game causes stress emotionally and physically. I am working despite everything because costs to try and keep myself half together are only increasing.
I am undergoing the process with the VA, still waiting for medical discharge and in search of an attorney.
I would appreciate any help and support. Thank you everyone again for all you have done, I wouldn’t be here without your love, help and support.
Side note: I have done countless interviews and gone in to depth about my experiences. Feel free to go on google and look up “karolina Stancik”
