She said in a beautiful photo on Instagram, “In life we have to count it all joy and know the unplanned may be in his plan💓May 30th I had an almost 8 hour surgery to remove my endometriosis (which I didn’t know I had until two weeks prior) , 2 cysts, fibroids & a hernia that all were making me very sick…I’ve known something was wrong but I also knew victory & better health would be near again!!

Monica wanted to share the story so that other women could understand the importance of taking care of their body and that their not alone. She said, “My reason for sharing is because we, as women, are built to be warriors and we will ignore something that seems so simple that can be so complex. Your uterine health is very important. I spoke up about it so people out there who are going through the same thing know that they’re not alone.”
