Kym Marsh gave Morning Live viewers an update from her bed after she suffered ‘complications’ from a double hernia operation at the weekend.
The former Coronation Street star appeared via video link on Monday’s show, where she explained to co-host Gethin Jones how she was feeling.
Kym, who underwent keyhole surgery on Saturday said she was ‘feeling a bit sore’ after the op.
What I had originally was diagnosed as inguinal hernia which they said can be caused by sport and obviously, I train quite a lot,’ she told Gethin.
‘And then when they went in and had a look they found what they call a femoral hernia, which is slightly less common.
‘It is more common in women apparently, women that have had children.’
Speaking about how she how to stay in hospital overnight due to a ‘few complications’, Kym added: ‘That was my Saturday, so that was nice. I ended up having to stay overnight because I hit a few complications but I am OK, I am doing alright. I am a bit sore.
‘It is really painful and weirdly because I had it done keyhole the pain I am getting more than anything is from where they have gone in with the instrument rather than the actual groin area.’
The mother-of-three went on to admit that homeschooling her nine-year-old daughter Polly while bedbound was a ‘struggle’.
She continued: ‘I am still trying to struggle through that. I think most parents will feel my pain when I say it is not easy trying to homeschool.
‘The great thing is this time around is that kids are – certainly from my experience with Polly’s school – there seems to be much more structure and teachers are doing Zoom chats and everything. Even lessons with the children when we can.
‘But then there is more pressure to finish those particular tasks for that day. I am trying my hardest to get through but obviously now throw in this operation, it’s not going to be easy.’
