Halsey attends the 2022 Grammy Awards just days after undergoing surgery. She candidly told fans about the arrival a few hours ago.
The 27-year-old Grammy nominee posted a candid selfie in which she can be seen wearing a hospital gown, hair net, and face mask. She opened up about the procedure she underwent just three days before the 2022 Grammys.
Halsey, who uses she/they pronouns, said on Instagram, “The last time I attended the Grammys was 2017 and it was 3 days after I had my first Endometriosis surgery. I walked the carpet with my stitches still in.”
“As luck would have it, I’m attending tomorrow for the first time in years and I had surgery again (you guessed it) 3 days ago,” she added. “Only posting this to say, if you see me be gentle lol I’m fragile. Fragile but excited.”
However, after an hour, Halsey posted to her Instagram stories that she was not feeling up to the evening and had headed home. She wrote, “Not feeling super well so I left early. Had to see BTS tho. Going to get some pasta and sleep. Thanks for everything luv u all.”
Halsey has always been open about her struggles with endometriosis, including the “terrifying” surgeries she underwent.
In January 2017, she wrote on Instagram, “Today I braved multiple terrifying surgeries. The most important of which being the surgery that would hopefully treat my endometriosis. For those of you who have followed this battle of mine or who may suffer with it yourself, you know the extremes to which it can be mentally exhausting and physically painful.”
Endometriosis is an often painful disorder in which tissue similar to the tissue that normally lines the inside of your uterus — the endometrium — grows outside your uterus, according to Mayo Clinic. It most commonly involves your ovaries, fallopian tubes, and the tissue lining your pelvis.
Halsey said at the time, “I’m in total agony right now… (and I’m going to be in excruciating pain for a while cause I had quite the cocktail of procedures today). In my recovery I am thinking of all of you and how you give me the strength and stamina to power through and prosper. If you suffer from chronic pain or a debilitating disease please know that I have found time to live a crazy, wild, rewarding life AND balance my treatment and I hope so much in my heart that you can too.”
