Maryse announced on Instagram that she had suffered from severe abdominal distention and swelling. Maryse also stated that her symptoms got worse in the past year. She has met numerous doctors in different fields, but everyone told her “no diagnosis.”
The former women’s champion then extended her gratitude to Dr. Thais. Here’s an excerpt from Maryse’s statement on Instagram:
“A week ago I went into surgery with Dr. Thais. She performed a Laparoscopy surgery for what we thought at the time was potentially Endometriosis disease!
She found and removed 11 implants around my uterus, ovaries, and all connective tissues around the organs in my abdominal cavity. These were sent to pathology for testing.
3 days later… the labs came back. No endometriosis.
All 11 implants came back as Serous Borderline Tumors. A very rare pre-cancer of the ovaries. Very sneaky and aggressive. If those became cancer, the survival rate is less than a year.”
Maryse stated that she is scheduled to undergo hysterectomy surgery in 4 weeks. She noted, “My uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes, cervix, omentum will be removed and will get abdominal lymph nodes removed for staging.”
