(EDGE) A friend of gay porn star Jimmy Durano recently launched a GoFundMe page for the performer following his undergoing brain surgery.

According to the page created by Larry Mendelson, Durano "recently had a very serious accident that required brain surgery."

"This surgery was followed by over two weeks in the hospital for recovery, mostly in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU)," the page reads. "The doctors were forced to remove part of his skull during his surgery and, due to swelling in his head, they cannot immediately replace part of the skull.

"To keep safe he must now wear a helmet just to leave the house. Only when the swelling goes down can they replace the skull," the page goes on to read. "This will require an additional surgery and recovery period."

After being released from the hospital to recover at home, Mendelson writes Durano "got worse" and "was in great pain and had further had complications so he was taken back to the emergency room."

"After further testing it was determined that he had a serious infection. This required a Picc line be inserted to cure the infection," the page reads."

Mendelson writes Durano's insurance doesn't cover all the medical care the performer's received.

"With the multiple surgeries we hope he will be able to work in the future, but for now, he will be laid up for a very long time and the future is unknown," the page goes on to explain. "It is expected he will be in recovery for at least an additional 6 months to a year after he is released from the hospital following this second surgery, and will require at least one more surgery and recovery period after that when they replace his skull.

"...While out of work the medical bills and living expenses are not stopping, nor will they during the additional surgery and hospital stay. It's not in Jimmy's optimistic nature to worry, but this time he is scared of what the future could look like."

The GoFundMe is asking for $15,000. As of this writing, it's earned more than $4,000. Click here to donate.

Durano, who has worked for a number of gay adult film studios like Men.com and is married to fellow gay porn actor Christian Owen, has chronicled his journey on Instagram. Just last week, Durano offered an update to his fans. Check that post out below, along with other updates he's shared.

"I am back in the hospital. Last Saturday I went back to ER due to some complications after the stitches were removed and my headaches were worst," he captioned a pic of himself in the hospital. "On Sunday I had an unexpected surgery. I'll be here under observation till May 1st."

 

For those wondering how I am... let’s say that I hit a bump on the road. I am back in the hospital. Last Saturday I went back to ER due to some complications after the stitches were removed and my headaches were worst. on Sunday I had an unexpected surgery. I’ll be here under observation till May 1st. And down the road there is one more surgery planned depending on the recovering time and once the swelling goes down. It can take up to 4-6 months. Till then I won’t be doing any out of town gigs or appearances neither working at my local home club @chill here in Palm Springs,CA. I am thankful for all the amazing doctors who did the surgery and the great nurses taking care of me. They are true angels. Thanks to all of you sending messages asking how I am and sending good vibes and wishes for speed recovery. For this reason I’ll not be as present on social media. 🤕

Here is the not so fashionable helmet that I have to wear every time I am off the bed. Cuz the way I am clumsy this is the way I can protect my head 👷🏼‍♂️⛑ 🤕 And meet my #BadAss lovely “Bitch” Suzane @SuzieQuzies ... my #RideOfDie partner in crime. Love you missy. Thanks for the visits and ☕️ while I was at the hospital. We gotta hang out soon. Just let me get 100% again 🕺🏻 And to all of you guys who follow me here that sent texts and messages of #GetWell, good wishes and speedy recovery #THANKYOU so much!!!! You guys are amazing for reaching out to me on social media. Love you all. And special thanks to all my friends that reached out to me via texts and phone calls at this scary time. Special thanks to the entire medical team, Doctors and nurses @ Desert Regional Medical Center hospital. A craniotomy is something scary to hear that you need that type of surgery.

And guys.... as I said before I am well now. At home, bed rest and recovering. Nothing to worry about. Thank for all the good prayers. Feels good to be home with the puppies and hubby’s love!! he watches over me and take care of this annoying and impatient patient 🙋🏻‍♂️LOL He has a big heart ❤️ and a lot of patience with me.
