He's had three bouts of surgery so far!

Andy Lee has been given a bum deal in the health stakes. 

And now the TV favourite has opened up about his secret health battles, revealing he’s undergone three bouts of surgery.

Having recently shared some details with his Instagram followers about a colonoscopy and a stay in hospital, the 38-year-old opened up further to Tom Steinfort during a TV interview on Today.

Asked whether he was now doing OK, comedian Andy replied: “Yeah, yeah. I’ve been in the hospital, getting some stuff done to my arse.

“Just implants. It’s worked for Kim Kardashian.

“And you should see that dress I’m wearing for the Logies…” he quipped.

Taking a slightly more serious tone, Andy explained what he had actually been going though. 

“I’d like to say that it was just a service after 35,000 kilometres, but they found something a little bit more serious in there, so…

“It’s been my third operation on that area,” he explained. 

Referring to his girlfriend, Rebecca Harding, he said: “Bec doesn’t like me talking about it, which is fair enough. But hopefully this finishes it.”

“I’m on about seven cushions from the waist down here, at the moment,” Andy joked over the satellite link. 

Andy has spoken in the past about his surgeries “downstairs”.

Speaking to KIIS 101.1’s Jase & PJ in 2018 he said that at first it was a suspected haemorrhoid “but they misdiagnosed and it turned out to be an abscess”.

“Normally they retreat so I went home but it kept growing and growing and growing and it got to the nearly the size of a lemon,” he told the radio duo at the time.
