Bindi Irwin has shared an update with fans following her major surgery to treat endometriosis.
For those who don’t know endometriosis is a condition where tissue that normally lines the uterus grows outside the uterus, causing pain and is estimated to affect around one in ten women.
In an Instagram post, Bindi shared a pic of her holding a bunch of red roses in her hospital bed thanking her fans amid her ongoing health struggle.
She captioned the post: "Healing... I have spent the week reading your kind words and stories of strength through your own experiences with endometriosis.”
"Thank you with all my heart for sharing. I can finally see a new me on the journey towards better health.”
She added: “I can't wait to be able to focus all my energy on our family and the conservation work we are so passionate about. Sending my love and light your way."
In the initial post, Bini said: “A doctor told me it was simply something you deal with as a woman & I gave up entirely, trying to function through the pain. I didn’t find answers until a friend @lesliemosier helped set me on a path of regaining my life.”
"I’m aware of millions of women struggling with a similar story. There’s stigma around this awful disease.”
She ended the post with a message of hope for others going through the same: “I’m sharing my story for anyone who reads this & is quietly dealing with pain & no answers. Let this be your validation that your pain is real & you deserve help.”
