Candid: Last week, Molly-Mae bravely put her tummy scars on display for the first time, after announcing she had undergone endometriosis surgery in October
Molly-Mae admitted last month admitted her ‘health is not great’ as she underwent the procedure – to destroy or cut out endometriosis tissue – shortly after having lumps removed from her breast and finger.
Talking about the surgery on her YouTube channel, the Pretty Little Thing creative director said she was ‘feeling a bit of a mess’ and her recovery had taken longer then expected.
Endometriosis is a long-term condition where tissue similar to the lining of the womb grows in other places, such as the ovaries and fallopian tubes.

Molly-Mae said: ‘The operation was way way harder to go through than I thought and my recovery time was quite a bit longer than I had planned and I was just a bit of a mess after that surgery.
‘A lot of the things I’ve been talking about recently is like my health is not great – but my endometriosis video is the last now.
‘I am done, hopefully I never have to see my doctor’s surgery or the hospital that I go to for a long time.’

What is endometriosis? How the disorder results in pelvic pain and internal scarring
Endometriosis is an often painful disorder in which tissue similar to the lining of the uterus – the endometrium – grows outside the uterus.
It most commonly affects the ovaries, Fallopian tubes and the tissue lining the pelvis.
The primary symptom of endometriosis is pelvic pain although many women also experience cramping during their menstrual cycle.
Symptoms also include painful periods, pain with intercourse, pain with bowel movements or urination, inflammation, excessive bleeding and infertility.
Often misdiagnosed, many women only discover they have the condition during infertility treatment.
Approximately half of women diagnosed with endometriosis have difficulty getting pregnant.
While studies about the link between endometriosis and miscarriages are still ongoing, newer research suggests that the condition can leave sufferers at greater risk of having a miscarriage.
