Cape Town – FKA Twigs opened up about her health in a rare and personal letter on Instagram.

The singer/songwriter shared a video of herself dancing expressively with a lengthy post, detailing how she has been recovering from “laparoscopic surgery to remove 6 fibroid tumours” from her uterus.

Describing the size of the tumors, FKA shares that the nurse compared it to being six months pregnant.

“The tumours were pretty huge, the size of 2 cooking apples, 3 kiwis and a couple of strawberries. A fruit bowl of pain every day. The nurse said that the weight and size was like being 6 months pregnant,” she wrote.

The 30-year-old had the surgery done in December and notes that despite the generous love and support she received from close friends and family, she still felt alone.

“I was so scared, despite lots of love from friends and family I felt really alone and my confidence as a woman was knocked.”

Referencing to the video attached to the letter, FKA praised her body for healing so well and for reminding her to always take care of herself.

“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.”

The emotional letter concludes with a special shout out to those women who have gone through or are going through the same.

“You are amazing warriors and that you are not alone. You can get through this.”
