My mother is 55 years old and is really struggling. She's been to several public hospitals and has sonars and swallowed cameras. She's been diagnosed with gallstones and a stomach ulcer. She currently weighs only 39kg; she is in constant pain and cannot really eat or drink anything.
We've managed to get an appointment with a specialist, but since we don't have medical aid, we have to pay the fees out of our pockets and money is really tight after all the hospitalisations and tests. A specialist is our last options since my mtoher is not getting any better and we need to get to the route of the problem.
