Bindi Irwin undergoes surgery after living in pain for a decade

Over time, Bindi Irwin has established herself as a prominent figure. After her famous father passed away, the daughter of the famed Steve Irwin had enormous shoes to fill in the animal world, but she has done so.I

ndeed, she and her brother Robert have matured into grownups who their late father would have been immensely proud of. They both diligently pursue his legacy, and from all accounts, they’re also terrific individuals.

I don’t know about you, but the Crocodile Hunter, aka Steve Irwin, was a major favorite of mine. He was a pioneer in my eyes, and I’ll never forget the amazing conservation work he carried out.

Terri, Steve’s wife, and his two young children, Robert, who was two at the time of his death, as well as Bindi, who was eight, both survived him.

The family has made every effort to remember their wonderful father even though they are plainly devastated by his passing. In Queensland, Australia, they still own and run Australia Zoo, and both Bindi and Robert are actively involved in bringing attention to the suffering of animals everywhere.

It’s simple to follow the Irwins’ activities in the social media age, but despite the appearance that everything is going well for them (Bindi now has a child of her own, for example), it would seem that there has been some unpleasantness going on for a while.

According to sources, Bindi, 24, has been troubled by physical problems for at least ten years.

The naturalist and TV personality shared on Instagram that she had endometriosis surgery. She continued, despite the fact that prior doctors had discounted her symptoms, that she had been in pain for a long time.

Bindi wrote: “Dear Friends, I battled for a long time wondering if I should share this journey with you in such a public space. It came down to the responsibility I feel to share my story for other women who need help.

“For 10yrs I’ve struggled with insurmountable fatigue, pain & nausea. Trying to remain a positive person & hide the pain has been a very long road. These last 10yrs have included many tests, doctors visits, scans, etc.

“A doctor told me it was simply something you deal with as a woman & I gave up entirely, trying to function through the pain. I didn’t find answers until a friend @lesliemosier helped set me on a path of regaining my life.”

Ultimately, Bindi opted for surgery in a bid to manage the pain and get to the root of the problem once and for all.

“Going in for surgery was scary but I knew I couldn’t live like I was,” she added.

“Every part of my life was getting torn apart because of the pain. To cut a long story short, they found 37 lesions, some very deep & difficult to remove, & a chocolate cyst. @seckinmd’s first words to me when I was in recovery were, ‘How did you live with this much pain?’ Validation for years of pain is indescribable. My family & friends who have been on this journey with me for 10+ yrs – THANK YOU, for encouraging me to find answers when I thought I’d never climb out. Thank you to the doctors & nurses who believed my pain. I’m on the road to recovery & the gratitude I feel is overwhelming. To those questioning the cancelled plans, unanswered messages & absence – I had been pouring every ounce of the energy I had left into our daughter & family.”

We can only hope Bindi’s road to recovery is a short one, and that she continues her great work, pain free, in the future.
