FKA twigs Reveals She Had Surgery for Fibroid Tumors

FKA twigs revealed that she underwent laparoscopic surgery to remove fibroid tumors from her uterus in December of 2017. She shared her experience in a recent Instagram post, saying that before the surgery she was a “fruit bowl of pain” due to the size of the tumors. She posted the message alongside a video of her pole-dancing in a studio. The post reads:

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 everyday. 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

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.
