Halsey is facing a tough recovery after undergoing “multiple terrifying surgeries” after being diagnosed with endometriosis, and bravely shared an update about her medical condition on Instagram.
“Today I braved multiple terrifying surgeries,” writes the 22-year-old singer (whose real name is Ashley Nicolette Frangipane), accompanying a photo of herself in a hospital gown.
“The most important of which being the surgery that would hopefully treat my endometriosis,” she continues. “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.”
She also gets candid about her post-surgery pain. “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),” she writes.
“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. #endowarrior #endometriosis 💛💛💛💛💛💛,” she concludes.
