CANCER SURGERY ADDITIONAL.   COSTS.

Hi Everyone. I have just had my Testicular Cancer Surgery to remove the Testicle! Please read.
6423478_1508196981.3828_funddescription.
 as you may remember I was having surgery on Thursday 16th October for Orchiectomy ( Removal of Testicle ). After being postponed 2 times in total the day finally arrived. Its just 2 hrs after the surgery which was only meant to last 30mins! 2 hours later I was back on the ward pumped full of pain relief and still affected by the General Anesthetic .
The surgery has been paid for privately due to ' No Cover ' by travel insurance because of  previous & existing health conditions.
The Testicle was removed along with all tubing, blood vessels and nerves to the right testicle. The surgeon was reluctant to cut anything removed from the surgery as it was extremely odd looking ( his exact words ). The entire removed organ has been sent to Histology for diagnosis 100%.
I'm now unable to travel back to the UK for around 3-4 weeks and must  begin ' Hormone Replacement Therapy ' as I'm no longer able to produce Testosterone! This is a very important part of how a mans body functions.

6423478_1508198783.8429_funddescription.
Along with the replacement therapy I'm scheduled for Chemotherapy session to ensure that there is no further unseen risk.
Originally funding for the surgery was raised, thanks to those whom supported me.
Now stuck with no return Ferry after being cancelled 2 times (£300 each time ) due to the postponed surgery days . Along with the poor exchange rate in the Czech Republic, GoFundMe Commission, Travel, Accommodation & Post Op Treatment, Re Arranging my own Prescribed Medication I'm now unable to complete the remaining Treatment that was not originally counted in the Fundraising Campaign.
I just don't have the money to cover the extra expenses due to delays !
Here is just 1 Day of Medication for me without any new ones I will have to have, 43 Tablets, 20ml Liquid Morphine and 40ml Liquid 


6423478_1508199016.6004_funddescription.
I have to now obtain replacement medication for another 30 days! Obviously getting opiates means seeing a different type of Doctor as the Urologist is unable to prescribe these particular drugs!

Please help to raise the remaining money for the unforeseen costs I now face. Not only am I in a lot of pain but the stress is probably not helping.


6423478_1508199329.6918_funddescription.You might think by looking at me that I'm really happy ? No but it's amazing what General Anesthetic and being pumped with drugs makes you seem ! The difference is that I can't stay pumped full of drugs. Reality is I fear that all this would have been for nothing without the completion of  treatment.
The amount of money to cover the cost of medication, further treatment and to return home is approximately £1500 ( after fees, exchange rates and costs hence higher amount in Goal ) the amount for the cost of a normal level of life!
Please help me complete the remaining treatment. Remember this saying:

Whom ever wrote this was either extremely rich or just wanted to be famous for the quote !
" As without money I can't complete my treatment! That will make those around me sad & unhappy ! That will make me unhappy knowing it ! As far as last year I didn't have to have my surgery done. " Everything in this type of statement is wrong!

Thank you for taking time to read this updated information . It's a mix of good and bad news! 
For my last update I want it to be a really happy one, without your help I am not able to do much at all!

best wishes with health, happiness to all.

Hi Everyone,
Yesterday evening I had attempted to send an ' Email Update ' to my Connections, Friends, Colleagues on LinkedIn!
For some unknown reason it also sent emails to contacts from my mobile, many people received double even triple emails all the same.
This was not done intentionally and apologies to anyone that may have taken offense.
I'm desperately trying to raise the funding as per the ' GoFundMe ' Goal!
Stuck with further needed treatment and not enough money to cover the costs , return home is causing some serious issues.
If you can help please follow the instructions on how to donate.
Bless everyone. Thank you for your help. Phil.

Today is exactly 9 Days after my Testicular surgery and surprisingly only a few days ago I was in more pain than previously ( Swelling has gone Down ).
The £1500 I need is to remain the additional time of 3-6 weeks to complete my treatment, have the 2nd Prosthetic placed, Testosterone / Hormone Therapy and for the very important Histology result including a session of Chemotherapy.
It's been a very long painful week . The small procedure required to replace the 2nd Prosthetic Testicle will be using local Anesthetic which will then make me look normal ( a complete man again )!
After 2 postponed surgeries due to not having a bed losing two ferry crossings at £300 each to return back to the UK is a lot to lose! They would not change the dates as we didn't have any cover with the type of booking!
Important advice " if you have any type of previous medical history tell the insurer everything no matter how small or long ago it was , they will not cover you otherwise and you will be left to pay all costs "! That last note is extremely important don't forget they will do anything not to pay if they can .
So I have nearly ran out of my various medications ( most of the items are not available here in the Czech Republic )! A GP cannot prescribe any type of Opiates such as I'm taking!
Morphine, Oxycodone, Temazapam has to be given by a ' Neurologist '! This means I have to see a different Specialist than whom conducted the surgery . Again this will cost more money I don't have! All extra costs are all due to the ' Cancelled Surgery Days ', I have got so far that I can finally see an end in sight, but I must complete my treatment!
£1500 covers the remaining time and costs so I can return home !
Please if you can help read all of the detailed information included here!
" Money really is the difference between Health & Happiness despite the quotes from famous ( Rich ) people "!
Thanks for your help if you are able to. Phil
2 hours after the completed surgery!

TESTICULAR CANCER COSTS.

Hi Everyone. I have just had my Testicular Cancer Surgery to remove the Testicle! Please read my position.
As you may remember I was having surgery on Thursday 16th October for Orchiectomy ( Removal of Testicle ). After being postponed 3 times in total the day finally arrived. Its just 2 hrs after the surgery which was only meant to last 30mins! 2 hours later I was back on the ward pumped full of pain relief and still had affects from the General Anesthetic .
The surgery has been done privately due to not being covered by insurance through previous existing health conditions.
The Testicle was removed along with all tubing, blood vessels and nerves to the right testicle. The surgeon was reluctant to cut anything from the surgery as it was extremely odd looking ( his exact words ). The entire removed organ has been sent to Histology for diagnosis 100%.
I'm now unable to travel back to the UK for around 3-4 weeks and will begin ' Hormone Replacement Therapy ' as I'm no longer able to produce Testosterone! This is a very important part of how a mans body functions.
Along with the replacement therapy I'm scheduled for Chemotherapy to ensure that there is no further risk.
Originally funding for the surgery was raised ! (thanks to those whom supported me ).
I'm now stuck with no return Ferry after being cancelled 2 times (£300 each time ) due to postponed surgery. Along with the poor exchange rate in the Czech Republic, GoFundMe Commissions, Travel, Accommodation, Post Op Treatment, Re Arranging my own Prescribed Medication I'm now unable to complete the remaining time and Treatment that was not counted!
I just don't have the money !
Here is 1 Days Medication for me without any new ones I have to have, 43 Tablets, 20ml Liquid Morphine and 40ml Liquid everyday!

I have to now obtain replacement medication for another 30 days! Obviously getting opiates means seeing a different type of Doctor as the Urologist is unable to prescribe these particular drugs!
Please can you help to raise the remaining money for the costs I now face. Not only am I in a lot of pain but stress is really not helping me.

You might think by looking at me I'm really happy, it's amazing what a General Anesthetic and being pumped with drugs makes you smile! The only difference is that I can't stay pumped full of drugs so Reality is I fear that all this would have been for nothing without the complete treatment.
The amount of money to cover the cost of medication, further treatment and to return home is approximately £1500.
Not a huge amount for the cost of a Cancer Free life when a Smartphone can cost the same!!
please help me complete the treatment. Remember this saying:
" MONEY CANT BUY HEALTH, HAPPINESS OR WHAT YOU HAD LAST YEAR "

Whom ever wrote this was either extremely rich or just wanted to write a caption everyone would remember! Here's why :
As without money I can't complete my treatment! That will make those around me sad & unhappy ! That will make me unhappy knowing it ! As far as last year I didn't have to have my surgery done.
thank you for taking the time to read this update. It's a mix of good and bad news!
I really want to make my last update a very happy one. Without your help I am not able to do much at all!

Hi everyone.
I am now able to relax ( finally ) after receiving the remaining funds for the Surgery ( postponed until the 12th October ) . I can now have a pair of new testicles instead of 1 and being called " Odd Bod "! Re test in time as per the 30 Day law of ' Pre Op ' results.
A huge thank you for the support and humanity. I'm lucky enough to have friends, colleagues that have helped me.
It's time that the ' powers that be ' sitting on cures stop thinking about money from the Pharmaceutical Companies and think about the people that can't afford any treatment!
I wish you all the best in health, happiness and success for 2017 onwards.
Phil
A very appropriate sketch from a well known show!
