Former 'Coronation Street' actress Kym Marsh has an appointment with her consultant booked to "double check everything is OK" following her hernia operation, because she is "still not right" after going under the knife
Kym Marsh is "still not right" after undergoing a hernia operation, and she has an appointment booked to "double check everything is OK".
The former 'Coronation Street' star is still finding it "very difficult to move around", so much so she is going to see her consultant again to ensure she is making expected progress in her recovery.
She said: "I'm still not right after my hernia operation and I'm finding it very difficult to move around.
"I've got an appointment with my consultant to double check everything is OK, but could just be I'm taking a bit longer to heal as everyone is different."
Kym – who played Michelle Connor on the ITV soap – is also suffering from dry skin and hair, but she has been taking comfort in decorating her home with candles, and joked her house resembles a church because of all the lit wicks dotted around.
Writing in her OK! magazine column, she added: "My skin is super dry and my hair is super static, which I'm told is down to it also being dry.
"So if anyone has any top tips on how to deal with that, let me know.
"I haven't had lots of time to myself with homeschooling and sorting the house out, but I have been taking comfort in candles.
"Putting them on or making the room smell nice with diffusers has made me feel so much better.
"I'm a sucker for a candle – my house looks a bit like a church sometimes!"
Last week, Kym admitted her operation recovery had been slower than she expected.
She said: "I had an operation on my hernia last week. I'm doing OK now, but I hoped to recover a little bit quicker than I am.
"I did hit some complications afterwards as my blood pressure was very low.
"I also couldn't pee, which is apparently quite common after hernia operations, so I had to be kept in overnight.
"But thankfully I made a bit of a recovery and was able to go home the next day."
