The rapper and mommy the procedure was just simply “mundane surgery” to correct a few issues she had been having after touring for two summers in a row with an injury.
But, after suffering complications, the “Fancy” rapper said she ended up in bed “hooked up to a million machines.”
Iggy Azalea said she was in so much pain that there were three days that she “just can’t remember at all.”
For three weeks she was unable to walk (unless to use the bathroom).
The good news is she was recently cleared to get up and moving again and she’s going to be okay.
The bad news is her health challenge caused her to miss out on a movie role she was supposed to film in Australia.

Wanna hear a crazy story?
I was supposed to travel to Australia and film a movie but right before I left I had what I thought would be a rather mundane surgery on my back to fix the issues I had after touring two summers in a row on an injury…
It didn’t end up being very mundane because I had complications with my recovery & ended up in bed hooked up to a million machines and in so much pain there are about 3 days I actually just can’t remember at all.
I didn’t walk except to use the bathroom ( a whole other ordeal lol) for 3 weeks & you’d be shocked to know how weak you can get when you don’t actually move. It happens really fast.
A week ago I was cleared to get up and start moving again. I’ve been seeing someone daily at the house and we do lil workouts (they are so sad y’all lol) I’ve been getting back strong.
I will recover 100%.
My goal is to be in good health by Christmas.
It’s been very mentally challenging to suddenly not be able to do anything for yourself and have no answers about when you will recover. That was the hardest part but all the Drs have been so happy with how quickly I’m getting better now that I’m back moving & walking.
Obviously, I won’t be in any movie. Missed that opportunity (damn it!)
But I’m just thankful to be seeing the light at the end of the tunnel now.
I think I’m gonna seriously get into my fitness after this.
I value my body in a whole new way after this experience.
I still can’t fly so I haven’t made it on any vacations or back to Australia yet, but damn it!
That vacation is gonna happen eventually!!!!
Stay healthy everyone and pay attention to what your body is telling you!
I’ll let you know how it’s all going in a few more weeks.
I know all of this had to be super tough on her with a 2-year-old son to care for.
Please join me in wishing Iggy Azalea a full and speedy recovery.
