“So What” if she’s been knocked down, Pink always gets back up again!
After undergoing hip surgery last week, the singer opened up to fans that she’s spent the last week recovering from the “brutal” procedure while surrounded by her family for support.
“Hey world! This is what 9 hours of sleep and cuddles from my kiddos looks like 7 days post hip surgery,” she wrote in an open letter to her fans. “It was a brutal first week full of tears and pain med depression, ulcers from meds and constant fevers, but my [boyfriend Carey Hart] brought me through.”
The three-time Grammy Award winner detailed how the motocross star helped her overcome the physical and emotional challenges of her first leg of recovery, explaining how Hart brought “brought me coffee in the shower, lugged around my 100 pound CPM contraptions everywhere I went, dried my tears, cooked me oatmeal, kept track of my meds, got me my phone charger, plugged in my compression machines, took my temp, made the bed, and talked me off the ledge.”
It is unknown the reason for the surgery, but Pink made sure to share her appreciation for the staff at The Steadman Clinic in Vail, Colorado, and Dr. Philippon for their care during the difficult time.
“Because I’m married to an athlete who has had hundreds of surgeries, I get to meet some of the world’s greatest doctors,” she wrote. “I am never not completely grateful.”
Fortunately, the superstar hasn’t lost her sense of humor despite the pain. Pink, who has stunned fans onstage with incredible aerial acrobatics performances, joked that she plans on using her crutches in some new tricks, and wrote about how the people she’s met along the way have inspired her.
“I’m impressed by those that face real, hard challenges, and alchemize their situation into something magical, or meaningful,” she shared. “I’m learning the gift of accepting help. My journey will be quick and intentional, and I will make a full recovery.”
