FKA Twigs: At last I feel strong after scary surgery

The 30-year-old British singer said she's "healing" in an Instagram post Wednesday after undergoing laparoscopic surgery in December for fibroid tumors.

When you're pregnant you know the cause of your bodily discomfort and pain will be over after 9 months.

The post shows Twigs back in fine form, easily maneuvering her body about a pole-but she didn't always believe that dancing would still be possible. "I know that a lot of women suffer from fibroid tumors, and I just wanted to say after my experience that you are unbelievable warriors and that you are not alone", she said. The singer-songwriter also admitted that she doubted herself and her body amid the hard time. Giving details of her health issue on Instagram, the singer said that her "confidence as a woman was knocked" and that she "felt really alone".

The 30-year-old musician admitted that she tried "tried to be courageous", but the "excruciating pain" caused her to doubt if her body would ever be the same again. The risk factors are listed as heredity, environmental (early onset of menstruation, use of birth control, obesity, vitamin D deficiency) and race - black women are more likely to develop fibroids, especially at younger ages and they tend to be larger and more numerous.

The musician - whose real name is Tahliah Debrett Barnett - admitted her "confidence was knocked" and she feared she'd never get her body back, whilst hailing anyone else with fibroid tumours "amazing warriors". "Women will accommodate these symptoms", Dr. Shirazian says. Occasionally, fibroids are the cause of recurrent miscarriages. If they are small we often don't know we have them. Although surgery does help some people, it isn't the only option and it may not be right for you.

How can you prevent them?

"Sending you so much love and healing". They might also suggest a gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonist to shrink your fibroids or radiofrequency ablation of the fibroids, which is a procedure that uses heat to get rid of them. Around 70 percent of women will have one at some point in her life, Taraneh Shirazian, M.D., a gynecologist at NYU Langone Health specializing in minimally invasive gynecologic surgery, previously told WomensHealthMag.com.
