Lady Gaga Has Hip Surgery

Lady Gaga is recovering following her hip surgery, which she underwent on Wednesday, February 20. She kept her Twitter followers updated on her progress and how she was feeling, while also thanking them for all the support.

"Monsters, You really gave me a lot of strength today," she wrote after the surgery.

The 26-year-old singer was suffering from a joint issue in her hip that forced her to cancel the remaining dates of Monster Ball tour.

Gaga continued: ". . . sometimes you are so brave that it terrifies me. I wonder how it's even possible. So I thought to myself, 'I'm alive, I'm living my dream, and this is just a bump in the road.' I'm grateful because this is temporary, and for some it is not. You have changed my life."

Gaga is expected be on crutches for two to four weeks, and could be back performing within three-to-six months, according to MTV News.
