    Injury/Illness
    Both feet amputated halfway up to the ankle

    I moved to Carson City in January 2022 to start new job after spending the last two years in California unemployed due to the covid crisis. Shortly after starting work a medical issue I had with my feet became a big problem. I went to see a doctor and he determined that I would need to have half of my feet amputated due to circulation problems. So I went and had the surgery done and was back to work in 2 weeks. And thought the worst was behind me and I would just need to heal and have special shoes made to help me walk more normally. But as time went on my feet did not heal as expected so the Dr started wound care trying to get them to heal. All nthe time I was still going to work and making a good effort to get the new job going. After 6 weeks of the wound care and still my feet did not want to heal properly so The Dr decided a couple of sugeries to apply stem cells to the wounds would hopefully get the tissue to heal. After the first surgery things looked promising so the second surgery was scheduled. The whole time I kept the dealer informed and thought everything was ok. After the second surgery and a week staying home to heal I went into work on the 13th of June and after clocking in I was asked to come to the service managers office and was told they were going to let me go due to time missed for my medical problems. Well i was completely devastated knowing that i had spent all my savings to move to Nevada and did not have enough time to save anything because of lost pay from missing work for my medical needs. I have started the process to get Social Security disability but it may take 3 months or so to see any money from them. I'm sure i will qualify have amputated feet. So now I find myself unemployed with amputated feet and more surgeries scheduled in July. Im a simple man who doesnt have any debt and just need to pay rent while I'm getting Social security. My rent is only 700 a month and would need maybe 500 for gas food and the extras to live my simple life until I get back on my feet.

    More surgery

    One prayer answered but just my luck along comes another hurdle. I was finally approved for state medical insurance and was able to get back to see the Dr that did my surgeries and found out that there's a very good chance I will have to have another surgery on my right foot if you want to call it that. This has been the one that just will not close up the wound so I can get prosthetic shoes made. So in the very near future I will have to get an MRI to see if the bones have any signs of infection if they do I will have to be on some antibiotics first before surgery. The thing that can prevent the surgery is if the bones are clear and the tissue shows really good progress. Which is a very small chance. I guess we'll just have to wait and see.
