Halsey gave fans an update this weekend on her battle with endometriosis, a disease in which tissue that normally lines the inside of the uterus grows outside it. 

“Today I braved multiple terrifying surgeries,” she revealed in an Instagram post, which included a photo of her in a hospital bed. “The most important of which being the surgery that would hopefully treat my endometriosis.”

The 22-year-old “Closer” singer, whose real name is Ashley Frangipane, first shared her endometriosis diagnosis with fans in January 2016.

This weekend, she admitted: “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).”

Halsey said she will be thinking of her fans while she recovers. “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,” she wrote.
