The singer and dancer revealed that she had no less than six tumors surgically removed! FKA Twigs went through hell since the moment her shocking diagnosis was determined.
As you may be aware, the star had been making headlines for a while due to her relationship and eventual split from actor Robert Pattinson.
When it came to her health, however, FKA Twigs kept her suffering under wraps and also in secret, she underwent surgery to remove no less than six tumors growing in her uterus.
Apparently, she weighed as much as a woman six months pregnant at the time due to the dangerous growths.
According to her, two of the fibroids were as big as apples while three were the size of kiwis!
Fortunately, back in December, she underwent keyhole surgery during which the doctors were able to successfully remove them.
FKA Twigs took to social media to open up about her health nightmare.
‘I am a private person as you all know and I’ve gone back and forth in my mind about whether to share the fact that this year I’ve been recovering from laparoscopic surgery to remove six fibroid tumors from my uterus,’ she posted on Instagram.
‘The tumors were pretty huge… a fruit bowl of pain every day. The nurse said the weight and size was like being six months pregnant. I tried to be brave but it was excruciating at times and to be honest I began to doubt if my body would ever feel the same again,’ she went on.
‘Despite lots of love from friends and family I felt really alone, and my confidence as a woman was knocked. But… today whilst dancing at the choreography house I felt like my strong self once again for the first time in a long while, and it was magical.’
‘Thank you precious body for healing, thank you for reminding me to be kind to myself, you’re a wonderful thing, now create and be other once again. And with this I let go of the pain,’ she concluded the post that also included a video of her dancing.
It was only fitting to share a clip of her art considering she was terrified she might not be able to dance again before surgery.
The 30-year-old received a lot of love from her followers who praised her bravery and commented how happy they were she is doing well now.
