20 years old, 0 pregnancies

“I’ve struggled with anorexia for four years but am now recovering. On April 30 [2010] I had emergency abdominal surgery – an exploratory laparotomy. As a result, my stomach very distended and will be for some time as it heals. It’s something I’m struggling to accept.”

  1. I feel your pain… I had an exploratory lap when I was 30 and it left an awful scar .. so I took up bellydancing and now I dance professionally, scar and all…..

    I had this procedure done 40 years ago and like you I didn’t deal with it . Until I realised that scar was for life. It represented that I had survived. I made friends with it and it never stopped me wearing bikinis .
