Pop singer, FKA Twigs, has revealed she’s recovering from a Laparoscopic Surgery she underwent back in December 2017 to remove six fibroid tumours from my uterus.
According to the British singer, ‘the tumours were pretty huge, the size of 2 cooking apples, 3 kiwis, and a couple of strawberries.’
The 30-year-old singer made this known in an emotional open letter she wrote to her 1.2 million followers via her Instagram page.
‘Dear friends, I am a very private person as u all know and I have gone back and forth in my mind whether to share that this year. I have been recovering from laparoscopic surgery to remove 6 fibroid tumours from my uterus. the tumours were pretty huge, the size of 2 cooking apples ? ?, 3 kiwis ? ? ? and a couple of ??. A fruit bowl of pain every day. the nurse said that the weight and size was like being 6 months pregnant.’
‘I tried to be brave but it was excruciating at times and to be honest I started to doubt if my body would ever feel the same again.’
‘I had surgery in December and I was so scared, despite lots of love from friends and family I felt really alone and my confidence as a woman was knocked.’
‘But… today whilst dancing with Kelly at the choreography house I felt like my strong self again for the first time in a while and it was magical. thank you precious body for healing, thank you for reminding me to be kind to myself, you are a wonderful thing, now go create and be other once again <3’
‘I know that a lot of women suffer from fibroid tumours and I just wanted to say after my experience that you are amazing warriors and that you are not alone. you can get through this, and with this, I let go of the pain… love always twigs.’
