Iggy Azalea has been forced to bow out of an upcoming movie after post-surgery complications left her unable to walk for three weeks.
The rapper gave a shocking health update on Twitter on Monday, Nov. 28, claiming she blacked out for three days in the hospital due to pain. In the lengthy message, the "Black Widow" singer wrote that she was set to have "rather mundane surgery" on her back to fix lingering issues. She then planned to head to Australia to film a movie.
"It didn't end up being very mundane because I had complications with my recovery & 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 said. "I didn't walk except to use the bathroom ( a whole other ordeal lol) for 3 weeks & you'd be shocked to know how weak you can get when you don't actually move. It happens really fast."
Iggy is now slowly beginning her recovery.
"A week ago I was cleared to get up and start moving again," she said. "I've been seeing someone daily at the house and we do lil workouts (they are so sad y'all lol) I've been getting back strong."
The Grammy nominee, 32, has set a goal to be completely recovered by Christmas.
"It's been very mentally challenging to suddenly not be able to do anything for yourself and have no answers about when you will recover. That was the hardest part but all the Drs have been so happy with how quickly I'm getting better now that I'm back moving & walking," she penned.
In lamenting that she won't be in the film, the Aussie said she's "thankful to be seeing the light at the end of the tunnel now."
The health situation has changed her mentality and focus.
"I think I'm gonna seriously get into my fitness after this," she vowed. "I value my body in a whole new way after this experience."
She added, "Stay healthy everyone and pay attention to what your body is telling you!"
In ending her message, she promised to update fans on her progress in the weeks ahead.
