Small update, I managed to order flights and night stay in London. So far expenses are 300 pounds + 300 pound will be for Mr W visit.
Hopefully he will be able to check my wound and say his opinion on it.
600 for first travel.
Surgery will be about 2500 pounds + accommodation for 2 weeks 1500 pounds.
I will spend all my savings, but I want to get my life back!
If I will heal I will sue my local surgeon, to get this money back LOL! Though I should think what kind of evidence papers to collect :)

It sure is a lot of money, but I totally understand you. What a bummer to be living in the wrong country...
- Fissure developed in Jan '13
- Started rectogesic in Feb '13 and diltiazem Apr '13.
- Got botox Jun '13
- Healed by Okt '13, although I still had some irritation for about a year.
- Now Feb '16, all is good. Still take magnesia, and squat precautionary.

Yes it is bummer, but it is luck I have possibilities to resolve or seek for chances. Others don't have such financially or even possible.

Brave usually comes as synonym for stupid :)
Probably, I hurry up the things.

You are incredible, you work through the pain and discomfort, of course you have too, but non the less, you are not stupid, of course it's not easy, but you tread through.
I have to get back into the work force, My field is the cosmetic industry, but I could easily work in any retail/customer service.
Some day's are good and some day can be painful, but manageable,
It's hard to find a job and  I'm trying, hopefully soon.:) 
igrik, you will be perfectly fine. we are all here for you.Image
