Gay porn star in ICU after complications from brain surgery


Jimmy Durano in ICU after serious accident

A gay porn star is fighting for his life in ICU after complications from brain surgery.

Jimmy Durano, the Men.com performer, has had a serious accident that has left him in the Intensive Care Unit.

Doctors were forced to remove part of his skull during his surgery and, due to swelling in his head, cannot replace part of the skull.

He is now wearing a helmet. It is only when the swelling goes down they can replace the skull.

Larry Mendelson posted an emotional GoFundMe about Durano.

”After the first surgery and hospital recovery period, he was released to go home but was still in pain. He was doing better, but after being home a while, things got worse. He 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,’ he wrote.

‘The insertion of the PICC line required a second surgery and Jimmy is once again in great pain and in the ICU. When he is released there will be another very long recovery period. Unfortunately, not all of this is covered by insurance.

‘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. It is expected he will be in recovery for at least an additional six 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.

‘He will not be able do any of the work he loves so much: dancing, personal appearances, scenes shoots, graphic design. 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.’

Call for donations

Asking for donations, he said: ‘Therefore, he really needs our support to get through these hard times. Anything you might be able to contribute will help alleviate this financial crisis, and give him some piece of mind.

‘His husband, Christian Owen has been by his side this whole time. He spent the first nine days of ICU staying 24/7 at the hospital sleeping in a chair next to Jimmy. He wanted to make sure he had an advocate and total support during the most critical time. This put a further drain on their resources.

‘We are praying for positive results and as speedy a recovery as possible. I know many of you have reached out to them with a kind word and moral support and I also know they are more thankful than you can imagine.’

The GoFundMe has raised over $4,000 of the $15,000 goal in just three days.
