Pink is Recovering From Hip Surgery: “It Was a Brutal First Week Full of Tears”


Pink is recovering from hip surgery.  The singer took to Instagram to update fans and detail the “brutal” healing process she’s endured so far.

“Hey world! This is what 9 hours of sleep and cuddles from my kiddos looks like 7 days post hip surgery!!” she shared before giving a shoutout to the doctors and nurses at the Steadman Clinic in Vail who performed her surgery.

“Because I’m married to an athlete who has hundreds of surgeries, I get to meet some of the worlds greatest doctors,” she continued. “I am never not completely grateful. It was a brutal first week full of tears and pain med depression, ulcers from meds and constant fevers, but my @hartluck brought me through.”

“Life always reminds you that most setbacks are actually just pauses and opportunities to recalibrate and count your blessings,” she wrote. “Because of this challenge, I happened to meet a woman with cerebral palsy who summits 13,000 ft mountains in her chair, (check out her documentary called ‘From my window’ on Vimeo, she’s incredible) I learned about a blind man that summits Mt Everest. It is humbling for a very independent person like myself to be rendered physically unable and dependent, even if for a couple of months. I’m learning the gift of accepting help.”

She continued, “My journey will be quick and intentional, And I will make a full recovery. For that I am so blessed. I’m impressed by those that face real, hard challenges, and alchemize their situation into something magical, or meaningful. In the meantime, shout out to all of those on the journey to wellness, and to those making magic out of the impossible. Have a great day folks!!!!! Let the healing begin.”
