Kirsten Storms The ‘General Hospital’ Star Shares Pic After Brain Surgery
“The poll in my stories told me everyone wants to see the back of my head! I thought you guys would be grossed out!”
Kirsten Storms informed her fans after recovery from brain surgery she had been through earlier in June.
On Tuesday, the “General Hospital” actress took to her Instagram Stories to let her fans know she is feeling an improvement in her health due to a “large cyst” being drained and removed from the back of her skull.
“There’s a noticeable difference for me as far as the symptoms I was experiencing from the cyst and all the pressure in my head,” she explained. “Those symptoms are gone. The constant pressure and headache I would have, which would affect me so much more than I realized now that it’s not there. That is gone, and that is amazing.”
She exposed she had her stitches detached, which she said was more painful than she anticipated.
“I guess I thought that because I was getting my stitches out my incision was mostly healed, and it wasn’t going to feel like anything. That was wrong,” she added. “Even now while I’m talking I can feel the tightness in the back of my head, and neck is very, very tight and hard-feeling.”
She posted a picture of the stitches of her head (her fans asked to show) on her Instagram on Wednesday.
“The poll in my stories told me everyone wants to see the back of my head!” she captioned the post (below). “I thought you guys would be grossed out! Lol. Swipe to see a pic taken last week (warning – there was stuff coming out of it and that is totally normal.)”
Kirsten Storms revealed she underwent brain surgery.
The “General Hospital” actress, who famous for appearing on Disney Channel’s “Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century,” took to her Instagram Stories on Friday to let her fans know she is “on the mend” after the procedure.
“So, I’ve not spoken about this much or at all actually.” she began. “Less than 48 hours ago I had brain surgery, hence the neck brace, it was on the lower portion of my brain.”
“What they had to drain and remove was not cancer — I want to clarify that right now before the internet goes crazy wild with rumors about this,” the 37-year-old star continued. “I had a very large cyst that had split into two and the doctor said it was like so full the pressure was very noticeable when they opened up my skull, sounds so weird. So I will be on the mend for the next several weeks but I will be back at work once this is over with.”
She continued she felt like “s—” and then apologized for her language. “But I feel like I’ve earned it today,” she added with a laugh.
The video was captioned, “Sorry for the shock you guys.”
