Robert Pattinson's ex FKA Twigs has SIX tumours removed from her uterus in "excruciating" surgery

The former fiancée of actor Robert Pattinson said: “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.”

Twigs, 30, whose real name is Tahliah Debrett Barnett, underwent the surgery in December and said she “felt really alone” following the procedure.

She wrote on Instagram: “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 strawberries. A fruit bowl of pain everyday.

“The nurse said that the weight and size was like being 6 months pregnant.

“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.”

The Sun revealed she had separated from partner Robert, 31, last October after three years together.

They had got together shortly before the release of her debut album LP1 in August 2014.

Fibroids are non-cancerous growths which are made up of muscle and fibrous tissue.

Now, five months after her operation, she said she is now starting to feel strong again with the help of dance.

Sharing a video of her moves online, she added: “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.

“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.”

Celebrities have sent their well wishes to the singer, with Olly Alexander from Years & Years writing: "Sending love."

DJ Diplo wrote: "A perfect woman," while actress Jenna Dewan added: "Amazing!! Sending you so much love and healing."
