One half of pop duo Jedward, Edward Grimes, has revealed he was rushed to hospital this weekend. The singer shared the news to his Instagram stories, sharing that his appendix had to be removed.
“Just had immediate surgery to remove my appendix, it was a life threatening and scary situation but I’m grateful the emergency team have operated on me and stopped the agony.”
“I’m healing and on the way to recovery!” he added.
Continuing, Edward shared the importance of listening to your body and urged his followers to take pain seriously rather than just brushing over it; “Thank you for your caring messages.”
“I’m urging everyone to please take severe pain in the abdominal area seriously as I’ve never experienced excruciating pain like this and knew something wasn’t right. Blood tests and CT scans indicated I needed surgery.”
The 29-year-old added; “I’m grateful it was caught in time just knowing the feeling that your body and appendix can lead you to poisoning yourself is insane. Don’t brush of key signs from your body ad health is everything.”
He was particularly frustrated that he was stuck in hospital on the night of Eurovision, as it holds a special meaning for him as he and John represented Ireland back in 2012.
“Like of all the times this year it had to be Eurovision night here alone not watching it with John and my family and dogs is wtf.”
However, he kept fans entertained online as he shared his running commentary on the show from his hospital bed.
We are wishing him all the luck for a speedy recovery!
