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.

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

”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 every day. 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.

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.

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.”
