Teyana Taylor Undergoes Emergency Surgery To Have Breast Lumps Removed: Cancer Runs Through My Family, So It’s A Scary Thing
Teyana Taylor is sharing her true life with the world and recently revealed a health scare she endured. On the latest episode of the reality series, ‘We Got Love Teyana & Iman’ Teyana Taylor, 30, had emergency surgery in Miami to remove lumps she found in her breast.
During the episode, Teyana Taylor became vulnerable as she opened up about how scary the moment was for her and her husband, NBA player Iman Shumpert, 31. She said,
“I just want this to be the last time I go through this. Cancer runs through my family, so it’s a scary thing both for me and [husband] Iman.”
After the operation, Teyana wanted to hold her two young daughters, 5-year-old Junie and 11-month-old Rue, however, she was told by doctors she’d have to wait at least 6 weeks before she could lift her children. Teyana shared how tough it was for her to not be with her family as she recovered from surgery.
“It’s tough. I’m definitely overwhelmed because I miss my kids so much, I miss Iman so much.”
“I think that’s probably the longest I’ve been away from them. My number one priority is to hurry up and get back home, but I know I need to take care of what I need to take care of as well.”
Thankfully the ‘Rose In Harlem’ singer was eventually cleared to return back home to her family in Atlanta. Once home, she reflected on how much her body has changed since becoming a mother.
“I accept every single body scar, everything that comes with mommy-hood, but the changes — physically, mentally, emotionally, it’s crazy. As mommies, we really are super-women.”
“It’s been a rough year for me, but I feel like I overcame it and I did a great job of balancing everything, trying to be mommy, trying to be wife, trying to be an entrepreneur and everything else I have going on. I just want to enjoy this moment and try not to think of the negative.”
