In short, if you miss my life, I had to have surgery for a large ovarian cyst that has caused me constant pain for over 4 years. I really don’t remember any of these causes of anesthesia lol. But I will say, I am grateful to have my family and educators around to support this process.
Martin went on to explain why she chose to share her health journey with her fans.
The only reason I am sharing this is so that I can hopefully spread awareness and share my experience to young women out there who may be going through the same thing or having a difficult period. . You are never alone. Listen to your body. It always shows you signs. Health is wealth.

It’s crazy that black women get fibroids at an alarming rate. What is really happening.
Praying for a speedy recovery
This needs to be addressed more often, especially in black communities, it’s pain no joke
Had similar surgery in my mid-20s. Mine was as big as a grapefruit! Can be very painful and dangerous. Glad she’s okay

Thank you guys for all the love. The procedure was 10 days ago and now I feel fine. I also appreciate stories from people who have been through the same thing! But I’m back and I’m a betta.
