K. Michelle has brought fans every step of the way through her illegal butt injection removal surgeries and the latest update is no exception.
After an infection that developed on tour caused her to be rushed to the emergency room in February, the singer and reality show star, who had said she’d need a second surgery, must have had some complications.
In an Instagram Live video from a hospital bed last week, she revealed that she had multiple blood transfusions.
“I’ve been sick. I’m doing better. So I love y’all, so much. It’s been so rough. I’ve had blood transfusions, everything. It’s been a really rough week,” she said, crying. “But I thank y’all for everything. I’m ok. I’m crying because I’m happy. I’m not crying because I’m sad. It’s been so painful. It’s been a lot. So I just thank God that I made it out on the other side and I thank God for everything that I’ve taken for granted.”
“I have the most skilled and amazing reconstructive surgeon in Beverly Hills and I’m blessed to be here. I thought I was strong but this changed my life. I saw my life flash right in front of me.”
“(I’m) slowing my life down now (and) taking my time with my new music. There are songs and truths to be told,” she wrote. “I will sing them. But in my own time and way. My son needs me. Oh, and those twins I want can FINALLY come this year because I’ll be able to actually pick them up. The small things matter most now.”
K. Michelle said that she’s begun therapy to relearn how to walk. “It hurts my heart to know there are girls out here who can’t afford to have the best and are just sitting around in pain and infection.”
In response, many fans applauded Michelle’s candor. “I love you for shedding light on this topic!” someone posted.
“You are so courageous!!” another wrote. “Thanks for sharing your story!! I pray for your health and strength!! If I was your friend I would have been there for you. Stay blessed.”
