Last year Halsey opened up about her struggle with endometriosis, a disease that causes inflammation in the tissue outside of the uterus and can lead to potentially severe pelvic pain, fatigue, nausea and other side effects. Over the weekend, the "Closer" singer shared an update on her treatment from her hospital bed.
In a lengthy Instagram post, she shared the news that she had just been through multiple "terrifying" surgeries that would hopefully treat her endometriosis. She thanks her fans for giving her the strength to get through this trying time and hopes this can encourage others to power through their own chronic pain or disease.
Today I braved multiple terrifying surgeries. The most important of which being the surgery that would hopefully treat my endometriosis. 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. 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
