FKA twigs has revealed that doctors found six fibroid tumours in her uterus which were removed in December.
“The nurse said that the weight and size was like being 6 months pregnant,” twigs wrote on Instagram. “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,” she added.
Having seemingly physically recovered from the surgery, Twigs posted a video of herself dancing around a pole and continued: “I felt like my strong self again for the first time in a while and it was magical,” she wrote before saying that “I felt really alone and my confidence as a woman was knocked.”
“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.”
