Dancer and singer FKA twigs just revealed in an Instagram post that she has been struggling with fibroid tumors for the past few months, undergoing laparoscopic surgery to remove a total of six fibroid tumors from her uterus. “The tumors were pretty huge, the size of two cooking apples, three kiwis and a couple of strawberries,” stated the singer in the post, adding that her nurse had said that the weight and size was comparable to being six 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,” said FKA twigs, also revealing that throughout her surgery in December she felt as if her “confidence as a woman was knocked,” despite all the love from friends and family. The singer posted a video of herself dancing, saying that it is the first time she felt like her strong self again after suffering from the fibroid tumors.

“I know that a lot of women suffer from fibroid tumors 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,” ends her post, with FKA twigs turning the pages to a new chapter. Read the full statement below.
