In an emotional and honest post on social media, former radio host Mel Greig has opened up about her ongoing battle with endometriosis, a condition that affects one in 10 women.
Next to an image of her bloated belly, the 35-year-old shared the “reality of living with endometriosis”.
"Within five minutes my whole reproductive system was inflamed and I started to vomit. Nausea is a new symptom for me," Mel wrote to her 11,000 followers.
"I now can't physically sit in a car for 2hrs because the pain is too unbearable and the pain medication that I once used has now been taken off pharmacy shelves, within a few hours I predict I'll be in the emergency room begging for pain medication.
