Tiffany Cross Surgery
In September 2021, Tiffany revealed in her show, The Cross Connection, that she underwent a full hysterectomy to remove fibroids. She revealed that she had been battling fibroids for a long time hoping the pain she experienced would eventually subside. She said her mother also battled fibroid. She began loss her hair which she documented with pictures of her scalp.
As the symptoms worsened she decided to seek the assistance of a physician to address her fibroids. She was given two options; a surgeon would cut around the fibroids as a temporary fix that would enable her to still have children before undergoing another surgery, or she could get a full hysterectomy.
“They could remove my uterus entirely and the fibroids and painful periods would be gone. But so too would my ability to carry children,” Cross said. “I was already over 40, I wasn’t married and I had never met this baby I was supposed to have. So, was I to live with pain, go bald and slice my body in half twice? I made the decision that was best for me and opted to have a full hysterectomy.”
She added that at the time she was not employed full time and didn’t have health insurance. She ended up enrolling in Obamacare and had the surgery as soon as it took effect.
She said that after researching about fibroids she found out black women experience them at a disproportionately higher rate than others. She also found out that hysterectomies are recommended to Black women more often when there are other, less intrusive options that don’t leave as much of a scar.
She encouraged women to seek medical assistance if they are dealing with uterine pain.
“Like I said, everybody’s different. I had five grapefruit sized fibroids that had to be removed. Some people have smaller more or less, so everybody’s different. Please talk to your healthcare professional.”
