Sounds strange? Well then - come on in and listen and see what I mean by that.

Today I am talking to Elin Rombo, a world famous Swedish opera singer! In 2009 she received the prestigious Birgit Nilsson scholarship. In 2013 she was named Court singer and in 2016 she was awarded the medal Litteris et Artibus by the Swedish King.

But she has another very important story to tell. Only 15 years of age, she started a long journey with multiple surgeries for a tumour. When she was cured but still got pain, no one told her about persistent pain. It has affected her, but she told noone about it. 

Now, 30 years later she learned about persistent pain by coincidence....and finally got better! 

Join me and listen to this episode; I am sure you will enjoy it!
