Marco Oswald, from Ferryhill, was on a night out in Durham last May when he was attacked in the Claypath area.
The reconstructive surgery that he has had to have after having his ear bitten off has cost ten thousand pounds.
However, Marco told us that there is more than just financial cost and physical scarring to deal with.
A County Durham family is offering a two thousand pound reward for information that leads to a conviction, after a man had part of his ear bitten off last May.
Marco Oswald was attacked outside of a takeaway in Durham after a night out.
Mr Oswald is now recovering from reconstructive surgery to rebuild his ear.
