Fred’s top surgery fund

Update posted by Fred Langridge On Jun 07, 2017

Dear all,

This is likely to be the last update here. It's now three months since my surgery, and life is back to normal. My latest healing milestone is that I have been able to return to swimming, which I love.
I am so, so happy with how my body is now. Thank you all for your support.

My surgery took place eight days ago and I had my post-op checkup yesterday. I'm really happy with the results: I've got a lot of healing to do but my chest looks like my chest, how it should look.

Thanks to all of you who helped make this happen.

Fred

P.S. Everyone should have received their requested rewards by now. If anything went astray in the post, please let me know! If you don't have my email address you can find me on Twitter at @SFLangridge, or look for me on Facebook.

The crowdfunding is over and in a little over four weeks I will be checking into the hospital. Thanks again to all of you for your support - financial and otherwise.

Thank you all for your generosity!

I thought you might like some detail about where the money from this crowdfund is going.

Your contributions (including offline donations), total £4,110.

Crowdfunding fees (paid to GoGetFunding) have been £360.15.

I've spent £120.09 on rewards.

By the beginning of May, I will have saved up £3,064 myself (I will borrow a bit for March to May)...

- so the total fund for medical stuff is £6,693.76.

My medical bills:

Two consultations at a total of £440.33.

The hospital bill (including the anaesthetist and one night's stay): £3275.

The surgeon's bill: £3175.

- so the total bill for medical stuff is £6890.33.

So I only need to raise or borrow another £196.57 for medical costs! This is an amazing position to be in: thanks to all of you for your help.

With a little under two months to go until my surgery date, I have now paid my hospital bill. This is about half of the total cost: I'll pay the rest to the surgeon nearer the time. This crowdfunder will be open for another three weeks for any last contributions. I'm bowled over by everyone's generosity so far.

Thanks to all of you for your support - not too much longer to wait, now!

I had my consultation with the surgeon today. It went very well - and there weren't any surprises. My surgery is now booked for 7th March! It feels good to have the date set: I've got something to plan towards and around.

Thanks to everyone who's contributing to making all this happen!

Thank you all for your generosity and for sharing the link to my fundraising page: four weeks in, we're almost halfway to reaching my target! My consultation with the surgeon is scheduled for late November, and after that I should have a date set for surgery.

Dear all,

I am bowled over by your generosity. Between you, you've contributed a thousand pounds in four days, which is already a quarter of what I need to raise. Thank you for the contributions and for sharing the link to this page. It means an awful lot to me.

Thank you to everyone who's already donated! You've already covered my consultation with the gender clinic and part of the consultation with the surgeon.
