Earlier this week we told you that during a recent visit to The Steve Harvey Show, K. Michelle shared that after having serious surgery in January to remove as much filler as possible from her body that was released from past butt injections, she was going to need another surgery. Some tissue had been damaged over time and her body was still having a strong reaction to everything.
“This upcoming Monday, I have a surgery. They’re cutting tissue out of my body so that my body will stop reacting to trying to push it out,” she said. “This will be my second one, but I’ve learned my lesson. I’ve learned it.”
While she didn’t confirm that she had that surgery on Monday, K. Michelle has been in the hospital, and for some time this week, she was in really bad shape. She shared a tearful update with fans on Instagram Live (obtained by TheJasmineBrand), and revealed that she had to get a blood transfusion. For a moment there, she wasn’t sure what was going to happen to her.
“I’ve been sick. I’m doing better,” she said while crying. “So I love y’all, so much. It’s been so rough. I’ve had blood transfusions, everything. It’s been a really rough week. But I thank y’all for everything. I’m ok. I’m crying because I’m happy. I’m not crying because I’m sad. It’s been so painful. It’s been a lot. So I just thank God that I made it out on the other side.”
The singer said her mother had been with her at the hospital, supporting her through her health crisis. There was no word on her partner, Kastan Sims.
“My mother has been here with me. I’ve learned a lot of things about a lot of people,” she said. “I didn’t know what was going to happen to me. And nobody did. So this is the first time in my life I’ve ever gone through something like that. So, really I just see things a whole lot differently. And I thank everybody who is there for me.”
As for what’s next, K said that she was going to have a CAT scan done to determine whether or not she was healthy enough to go home.
“They’ve taken everything out of me. I’ve got one more needle,” she said. “I’m going to a CAT scan right now and hopefully everything goes ok with my CAT scan so I can be ok.”
For the record, about five million people require blood transfusions each year according to the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute. Blood transfusions are generally performed when people lose blood during surgical procedures. They’re also needed for those with bleeding disorders, illnesses that cause anemia and infections or liver disease that can impact the way your body makes blood.
Whatever the reason for K’s blood transfusion and extended hospital stay, we are hoping for a speedy recovery and an end to all of the health issues caused by the injections.
