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 <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.
