Sharing photos of herself in her hospital gown and an image of her scan, Thylane went on to explain that she began experiencing pain again three months after her first surgery.
‘At the beginning everyone ( and I ofc ) thought it was because of the operation,’ she wrote. ‘This year I saw three different gynecologists, I’ve seen more than 4 radiology centers in Paris and all of them said the same thing, “don’t worry U have nothing it’s all in your head”.
Four days ago, Thyalne said she had to go to the ER ‘because my belly was hurting so Much I couldn’t handle it anymore and they said that everything was fine and that I had a lil kyste and I will have to do a check up in 2-3 months.’

‘The day after this I had this appointment with an amazing doctor ( Olivier Kadoch ) who directly saw that I had a kyste of 5,6 cm who was touching my ovary so he sent me to do an IRM and an hour after this , the doctor called me and ask me to go straight to the hospital to do an emergency operation .’
‘Today I’m finally feeling better I’m finally feeling free I really thought I was crazy for complaining about my stomach for so long. Happy that I’ve never gave up,’ she gushed.
‘From this experience I’ve learned that when you’re body hurts, don’t let it slide and take care of it, you must see different doctors until some of them find the problem and heals it. Any pain even the little ones can hide something way more important.’

The awards, which began in 1990, pride themselves on being among the most ‘diverse’ beauty awards.
