Continuing, "I ignored it thinking she’ll be right! Well it turns out I had developed some quite serious issues with my vocal cords and have caused pretty nasty damage by pushing through, resulting in the need for surgery with a long and arduous recovery."
In good spirits, she added, "(Including no talking at all for FOUR DAYS Lee thinks Christmas has come early!) Fear not, I’ll be back to my normal chatty self in a few weeks!"
The former Bachelorette's message continued, "But this is my public service announcement not to ignore anything you think may be wrong. You know your body and if something doesn’t feel right. Your health should always be paramount, no matter what."
Concluding, "Now to eat copious amounts of ice cream, jelly and soup and get my voice back!"
Fans were quick to send their well wishes before asking for an update.
Boyfriend Lee Elliot, who won the second season of Bachelorette, took to Instagram Story.
He revealed, "'The patient is doing well. Thank God for Endone."
