FKA Twigs reveals she had six tumours removed

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.”
