Monica Says She Had “Multiple Blood Transfusions” While Discussing Her Recent Surgery For Endometriosis
R&B artist Monica is opening up about her recent surgery for endometriosis and why it is important to raise awareness of the disease. During her appearance on “Daily Blast Live” she discussed her second endometriosis surgery and why she is raising awareness of the disease:
“Well, I had never heard of it [endometriosis], just four years ago when I was diagnosed. Endometriosis is extremely painful, and women, monthly, feel like suffering is a part of the deal when you’re a woman. But you find out when you learn about endometriosis that we shouldn’t be in excruciating pain, and you learn that every age can suffer from endometriosis. So, once I was diagnosed, I initially had the first surgery and it was not like the second. The second was very hard. I was in the hospital for a week and I ended up having multiple blood transfusions. But now being on the mend and recovering I’ve become somewhat of an advocate because I want women to know what this disease is and I want them to know that there is hope for them.”
