FKA Twigs Opens Up; Here Are Natural Ways For Women To Prevent & Combat Fibroid Tumors

FKA Twigs recently opened up about her battle with fibroid tumors. The artist and dancer  spent the last 5 months recovering from a major laparoscopic surgery, where she got 6 fibroid tumors removed from her uterus.

“The tumors were pretty huge, the size of 2 cooking apples, 3 kiwis and a couple of [strawberries]. A fruit bowl of pain everyday,” Twigs wrote on Instagram. “The nurse said that the weight and size was like being 6 months pregnant.”

Fibrosis tumors are composed of renegade muscle cells that come together to form a fibrous “knot” or “mass” within the uterus. Women between the ages of 30 and 40 are at great risk, especially black women. Fibrosis tends to run in the family as well. The symptoms of fibrosis include pelvic or abdominal pain, swelling, and increased urination.

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. the tumours were pretty huge, the size of 2 cooking apples 🍎 🍎, 3 kiwis 🥝 🥝 🥝 and a couple of 🍓🍓. a fruit bowl of pain everyday. the nurse said that the weight and size was like being 6 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. I had surgery in December and I was so scared, despite lots of love from friends and family I felt really alone and my confidence as a woman was knocked. but… today whilst dancing with Kelly at the choreography house 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 <3 I know that a lot of women suffer from fibroid tumours 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. and with this I let go of the pain… love always twigs 🌱

Some women feel little to no symptoms while others are in extreme pain,  “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. I had surgery in December and I was so scared, despite lots of love from friends and family I felt really alone and my confidence as a woman was knocked.”

Thankfully, FKA Twigs is currently in healing and says she is doing very well, “Today whilst dancing with Kelly at the choreography house I felt like my strong self again for the first time in a while and it was magical,” she wrote. “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.”
