Sara Bareilles has surgery on uterus

Sara Bareilles has undergone surgery on her uterus.

The 'Brave' hitmaker has revealed she went under the knife on Wednesday (20.07.16) to have a non-cancerous growth removed from her womb and is now recovering at home.

Taking to her Twitter account shortly after the operation, she wrote: "So I have been healing from a minor surgery removing a fibroid on my uterus ...

"Well, surgery sucks but helpers and families are amazing, nurses are angels, and doctors are wizards."

Along with her health update, Sara believes the growth has given her perspective and allowed her to reflect on the "chaos" that she says surrounds "our beloved planet."

She explained: "The slow pace of my recovery has simplified my world in a way, and I am reminded to absolutely acknowledge the chaos of a very strange/surreal time in our country and on our beloved planet, but ALSO remember to come back into the room I'm actually sitting in. Celebrate what is good about that too."

Meanwhile, the brunette beauty is expected to make a full recovery after her surgery and believes binge watching 'Game of Thrones' will help get her back on her feet.

She said: "I will continue to mend and hopefully return with more patience and compassion and knowledge of 'Game of Thrones'. Hope this finds you seeking some joy or handing some out to somebody else. We could all use a slice of that. Nothin' but love, y'all (sic)."
