“I want to say thank you. In February I was diagnosed with a 8mm ommental fat hernia. While I was in Chester library I was inspired by your line “I’m not defined by my scars but my ability to heal “. I posted this on my wall and I’ve kept it in my mind each day. Since then I’ve walked over 650 miles, completed 2 marathons and 2 triathlons.
Last Friday I had my hernia operation and when the surgeons went in the hernia had healed itself. Because the hernia was fat tissue and not intestinal tissue all the walking and activities burned the hernia away. I didn’t need a repair or any mesh and now just have two minor scars from the incisions. Thank you”
