This blog post is an extension of one I wrote commenting on a newspaper article. I am discussing my own scars. Will add more detail later.
I have close to ten surgical scars on my body, all on my abdomen and back. I don’t necessarily expose them (I am 58 after all!), but am proud of them as they have let me life my life the way I want to live it. Each scar is from a surgery that corrected something that was really wrong with me from my appendix when I was fourteen to the insertion of a pain medicine pump last year. They all did their part to make my life better.
