Love Island’s Demi Jones struggled to wake up after second op to remove cancer

Love Island star Demi Jones recently revealed that she’s in a lot of pain following her second operation to remove her cancer.

Demi was diagnosed with thyroid cancer earlier this year and spoke in a video from her hospital bed about having to be woken by a nurse after the operation.

She said: “I’ve just woken up. Pain is so much worse this time. I’ve been asleep for hours, nurses struggled to wake me up.”

She also thanked her fans for sending kind messages throughout her treatment.

Her first surgery to remove the lump, which was located on her neck, had left Demi with a two-inch scar while this second operation was to remove any potential left over cancer.

Just before going in for surgery, Demi posted on her Instagram story how she was feeling while she waited.

She put: "Just waiting to head into surgery now to have my full thyroidectomy to remove anymore cancer on the gland.

"Feeling a bit anxious today, as I've got to be in for a few days, but I am a tough cookie. See you on the other side."

Demi stayed strong and is now hopefully on her road to recovery after the thyroidectomy.

It was only recently that Demi had revealed that she didn’t tell her family about the diagnosis before jumping on social media to tearfully share the news.

Speaking to the Zeze Mills Show she said: "When I first found out it could be cancerous, I was in shock and I was crying because I went on social media, and I shouldn’t have done that because I hadn’t even told my family yet.

"I don’t even know why, I can’t even tell you because my head was scrambled and I was like 'Oh my God, guys!'"

While thyroid cancer is rare, it has grown within the last 20 years, now listed as the most common form of cancer in women between the ages of 15 and 30.

Because of the worldwide Coronavirus pandemic, it has been harder to make appointments and be seen by doctors and receive treatment.

Media journal The Lancet have said that close to 40,000 fewer people have started cancer treatment last year in the UK.

Disruption to services has caused there to be a 60 percent rise in waiting times longer than three months.
