Halsey Undergoes Surgery After Speaking Out About Her Battle With Endometriosis
Wishing her all the love.
All around badass Halsey has opened up about her battle with endometriosis ahead of a stay in hospital in which she hopes to have the condition treated with surgery. Having previously spoken about how the debilitating disease has affected her life, the singer took to Instagram to share her fears about several operations set to take place over the weekend.
If you didn't know, endometriosis is a really frickin' painful condition which sees tissue that behaves like the kind you'd usually find in the womb located in other areas of the body. Every month when you get your period, the tissue naturally tries to behave like that of the womb and tries to break down too.
Because it is not in the uterus, it can't be expelled from the body and can thus cause a whole lot of pain, most usually in the abdomen, hips, top of the legs and area around the womb.
Posing in a hospital gown before heading into surgery, Halsey shared strength for those also experiencing the pain that comes with the condition and other chronic illnesses.
"Today I braved multiple terrifying surgeries. The most important of which being the surgery that would hopefully treat my endometriosis," she writes.
"For those of you who have followed this battle of mine or who may suffer with it yourself, you know the extremes to which it can be mentally exhausting and physically painful. OK HONESTLY I'm in total agony right now (and I'm going to be in excruciating pain for a while cause I had quite the cocktail of procedures today). But in my recovery I am thinking of all of you and how you give me the strength and stamina to power through and prosper.
She adds: "If you suffer from chronic pain or a debilitating disease please know that I have found time to live a crazy, wild, rewarding life AND balance my treatment and I hope so much in my heart that you can too. I'm gonna be off the map for a few days but please know even if I'm not on social media I am thinking of you."
Sending ALL the love to Halsey and fingers crossed that this helps make her condition more bearable. And if you need more info about endometriosis then check out the NHS fact sheet right here.
