FKA Twigs opened up about a painful surgery she had in December. The artist learned she had six uterine fibroid tumors, "the size of two cooking apples, three kiwis, and a couple of strawberries" on her uterus.

 

She shared a video of herself pole dancing and wrote a post to her followers.

 

"Dear friends, I am a very private person as u all know and I have gone back and forth in my mind whether to share that this year I have been recovering from laparoscopic surgery to remove 6 fibroid tumours from my uterus," she told fans.

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.
