Taking to Instagram, Maria Kanellis announced that she will be undergoing a thyroid operation later today.
In a lengthy post, Kanellis noted that she has been suffering from some troubling symptoms over the past two and a half years, and she needed to go through with the procedure following a concerning update from her doctor.
She also thanked Tony Khan, her husband, Mike Bennett, and her mother, for their support in her statement.
Maria Kanellis’s Instagram post reads as follows:
“Today I am getting thyroid surgery to remove half my thyroid which includes a nodule. I’ve been have symptoms for the past 2 and a half years. Heart racing, trouble with weight loss, skin changes, exhaustion, mood changes, sore throat, anxiety, period changes, raspy voice, trouble swallowing, brain fog, calcium deficiency, amongst others. But, with having 2 kids, the Pandemic, and multiple times being fired I just didn’t have the time to really focus on it. Now, my doctor has told me that there are abnormal cells which could turn cancerous and a possibility of causing afib, which is a heart condition.
So, with the full support of @aew, it’s time. Thank you to @tonyrkhan, Megha, and CD for the support!! And of course thank you to my wonderful husband @therealmichaelbennett and my amazing mother for helping us through this time!! Recovery is supposed to be about 2 weeks for the incision and about a year for the hormones to balance. I can work after 2 weeks with no restrictions. I will keep you all posted…
Here is a photo pre-thyroid surgery scar. Hahaha…”
