Love Island’s Molly-Mae Hague has revealed she is recovering from surgery to treat endometriosis
The 22-year-old told her 1.6 million Youtube followers that she had been diagnosed with the painful condition earlier this year, and that her health was not good at the moment.
She said: “The operation was way, way harder than I thought. My recovery time was quite a bit longer than I had planned, and I was just a bit of a mess after that surgery.
“A lot of the things I’ve been talking about to you guys recently is like, my health is not great, I’ve been dealing with this, I’ve been dealing with that. But my endometriosis operation is the last thing now.
“I am done, hopefully, I never have to see my doctor’s surgery or the hospital that I go to for a long time.”
What is endometriosis?
Endometriosis is a condition where tissue similar to the lining of the womb (endometrium) is found elsewhere, usually in the pelvis around the womb, on the ovaries, tubes, ligaments holding the pelvic organs in place as well as occasionally the bowel or bladder.
Molly-Mae told her fans the pain she was experiencing was put down to heavy periods when she went to seek help.
The social media influencer said she felt like she had been dismissed by doctors about her concerns, but finally got a diagnosis when she had an appointment with a specialist.
The girlfriend of Tommy Fury said: “I’ve told you guys for so long that I’ve suffered from excruciating periods. So many of you said to check for endometriosis.
“My period pains are to the point where I literally can’t stand up, I’m in unbearable pain, I’ve had to take time off work. It is ridiculous.
“It’s not a good thing that I have endometriosis because obviously, it can affect your fertility, it can affect loads of things.”
