Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
The advice is do not venture for this.You are too young,not only physically but also mentally.And also financially.So,be practical and go for the other appropriate goals as per your age.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counseling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
