Sharon Stone took to Instagram to reveal she had a tumour that was discovered after a mistake, a cautionary story she hopes would motivate followers to “seek a second opinion” on medical difficulties.
Just had another misdiagnosis and wrong operation,” the 64-year-old “Basic Instinct” star remarked on Tuesday.
Following a second epidural, she reported “worsening discomfort.
I went for a SECOND OPINION: I have a huge fibroid tumour that has to be removed,” Stone stated. Ladies, especially: Don’t be brushed off… GET A SECOND OPINION… It might save your life.
Stone stated that full recovery will take four to six weeks, but added, “It’s all okay.”
The Academy Award nominee for Casino then uploaded an image of a blog piece headlined, Women More Likely Than Men to Suffer Misdiagnosis, According to Studies.
Stone has been candid about her health issues, including telling Vogue Arabia earlier this year that a “major stroke and a nine-day brain haemorrhage” in 2001 nearly killed her.
According to Vogue Arabia, the terrifying encounter caused her to stop considering cosmetic surgery as a “cute luxury” and instead as “some kind of enormous, agonising neurological necessity.
Stone has also spoken publicly about miscarriages, which cost her nine children.
We, as females, don’t have a place to address the profundity of this loss, she said during the summer on Instagram.
