Re: In desperate need of surgery but have no insurance or money
There is no way to "hurry up and get insurance". If you already have the symptoms, and have no recent insurance, any condition you have already been treated for would be considered pre-existing and would not be covered. The best bet is to find a public hospital (such as a county hospital or one that is known for treating the uninsured and poor) and seek immediate treatment. If you go in via the emergency room to a public hospital they will have to do surgery if you are in dire need of surgery.
