AceShowbiz - Iggy Azalea has revealed that she is "still healing," months after undergoing a back surgery back in 2022. When addressing her absence, the "Problem" raptress revealed that she needs more time for her recovery.
On Wednesday, June 7, which was her birthday, the 33-year-old gave her Instagram followers an update on her health condition while apologizing for not greeting fans sooner. In the caption of the now-deleted post, she wrote, "[White heart emoji] Sorry I've been gone longer than usual…."
Iggy went on to explain, "I'm still healing my back! I'm doing everything I can to be 100% better as fast as possible so I can get back to being creative! I miss it!" She did not forget to express her appreciation by saying, "Thanks for all the birthday wishes today."
Along with the caption, the "Fancy" hitmaker let out a selfie of herself during her recovery phase. In the snap seemingly taken from a very low angle, she could be seen sticking her tongue out as she placed her head on a hole that did not fit her whole face.
Iggy revealed that she underwent back surgery in November 2022. "Wanna hear a crazy story? I was supposed to travel to Australia and film a movie but right before I left I had what I thought would be a rather mundane surgery on my back to fix the issues I had after touring two summers in a row on an injury," she wrote in a tweet.
"It didn't end up being very mundane because I had complications with my recovery and ended up in bed hooked up to a million machines and in so much pain there are about 3 days I actually just can't remember at all," she followed up in another tweet. "I didn't walk except to use the bathroom (a whole other ordeal lol) for 3 weeks and you'd be shocked to know how weak you can get when you don't actually move. It happens really fast."
"Obviously I won't be in any movie. Missed that opportunity (damn it!). But I'm just thankful to be seeing the light at the end of the tunnel now. I think I'm gonna seriously get into my fitness after this. I value my body in a whole new way after this experience," she added.
