R&B singer Monica Brown is on the road to recovery after undergoing surgery to remove endometriosis, 2 cysts, fibroids and a hernia. According to the Mayo Clinic, endometriosis is an often painful disorder in which tissue that normally lines the inside of the woman’s uterus — the endometrium — grows outside the uterus.
Endometriosis is a medical condition where tissue that usually grows inside the uterus grows outside and it’s apparently been plaguing Monica for years and making her feel ill.
“May 30th I had an almost 8 hour surgery to remove my endometriosis (which I didn’t know I had until two weeks prior),” wrote the singer on Instagram. “2 cysts, fibroids & a hernia that all were making me very sick…I’ve known something was wrong but I also knew victory & better health would be near again.”
She also thanked her doctor and the Northside Hospital staff.
