FKA Twigs腫瘤纏身,手術後恢復中


英國音樂人、舞者FKA Twigs週一在社群媒體Instagram透露,去年12月她接受腹腔鏡手術,從子宮切除6顆子宮肌瘤,過去五個月來她艱辛地面對與腫瘤的抗爭與手術後復健。曾一度感到深度孤獨與恐懼的她在跳舞過程找回自信,鼓勵病友勇敢面對,走過生命難關。

FKA Twigs說,自己是很保護隱私的人,她在心頭反覆糾結是否要分享這則訊息。去年她身上檢查出許多腫瘤,且尺寸非常大,以水果做譬喻就是兩顆蘋果、3顆奇異果和幾顆草莓大小,護士形容腫瘤總重量與大小就像懷了6個月身孕,每天她都得承受難熬的痛苦。「我試圖勇敢,但有時候真的痛到難以忍受。而且,老實說,我開始懷疑我的身體是否會再次感受到同樣的感覺。」

去年12月進行手術時她感到非常害怕,儘管獲得親朋好友許多關愛與祝福,仍感到相當孤獨,她自言身為女性的自信徹底被擊潰了。不過,FKA Twigs發文當天與友人Kelly一起練習跳舞時,在闊別一段時日後再度感受到強壯的自我。「這真是太神奇了!」「感謝寶貴的身體痊癒中,感謝身體提醒我善待自己。」FKA Twigs說道。

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 ?
