In 2019 and 2020 I had lots of major surgery for cancer. My penis, both sides of my groin and my pelvis have all been under the knife. In truth, I probably couldn’t have handled many more operations.

The 9 inch scars each side of my groin are really neat and tidy, and the hairs are growing back over them now. I also have two round scars and a matchbox sized outline of the drain holes either side of my belly button. Then, across my belly there’s another 6 scars of varying shapes and sizes from the robotic surgery.

No amount of bio-oil is going to get rid of those! I’ll always have them, and as far as I’m concerned they’re part of my story.  Plus, they’re a great talking point!

Scars are cool, and you can always tell the kids (ladies) they’re bullet holes. Or marks from where you had to fight a shark, or crocodile! With your bare hands.
