my first walk without blind-gut …

My blind-gut or appendix got infected and gave lots of pain …

so it is surgically removed in hospital.



After the anesthesia, I saw only three small taped wounds on my nice shaved abdomen …

Decades ago it was necessary to stay in hospital for a week.
Now I tried to make a quiet walk on the island of Neeltje Jans a day after the operation.
With only a few pain shoots that worked out reasonably well.

During the walk I thought about what happened in my stomach …


for a photography enthusiast it is difficult not to be able to take pictures of the healing of his own intestines ….

the next video shows how a technician sees it …


the next video shows how a surgeon sees it …
