Halsey has just taken to her Instagram account to give her fans an update on her recent slew of surgeries relating to her lifelong battle with the disease endometriosis, a painful disorder that causes tissue growth outside the uterus and lower abdomen.


Yesterday, she said that she braved multiple surgeries in an effort to finally treat the disease for good. Despite being in “total agony,” Halsey said that she’s found time to live a fulfilling and wild life. In her Instagram post, she encouraged others to stay positive and continue fighting, just as she has.

Check out her snazzy hospital bed photo and full caption below.

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. OK HONESTLY 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). But 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. I'm gonna be off the map for a few days but please know even if I'm not on social media I am thinking of you. #endowarrior #endometriosis 💛💛💛💛💛💛
