Margaret John described her "ordeal" at having to live with two hernias in her stomach as she waits for an operation to remove them.
"As the day goes on they do get bigger, and by evening time I feel that I've got to put both my hands underneath to carry them around because they're so heavy.
"Day-to-day I can't bend, I can't stretch - everything seems an ordeal."
In this video, Margaret shows the two hernias on her stomach.
