Challenging emotions


There was one point after I had the second part of the mesh removed. There was that 6 weeks where I had to be with the open wound in my abdomen. I think that was maybe the only point where I started to think that "Oh my God." is this ever going to be over? And that was the first time that I really felt depressed.
