Pink is discussing her “bionic woman” status after recovering from surgery and putting on weight during the coronavirus outbreak. 43-year-old Pink told Variety, “Having breaks is good for my voice. Not so good for the body.”
Additionally, the “So What” singer remembered, “Especially during COVID — I gained 36 lbs. All I did was make sourdough and then eat the sourdough.” She continued, “And then I had not just the hip surgery but double disc replacement in my neck.”
Furthermore, Pink said that following her operation, she is now the “bionic woman,” has lost 36 pounds, “and I am stronger than I’ve ever been in my life. And I’m ready to go, and I’m ready to get the hell out of here. I’ve been home way too long.” Pink also outlined her “brutal” rehabilitation following hip surgery in a moving Instagram post in November 2021.
She posted a photo of herself grinning in all-black shorts and a tank top thanking “everyone at The Steadman Clinic in Vail and Dr. Philippon” for looking after her, “Hey world! This is what 9 hours of sleep and cuddles from my kiddos looks like 7 days post hip surgery!!”
The three-time Grammy Award winner continued by expressing her gratitude to her husband, motocross star Carey Hart, for supporting her during the toughest stages of her recovery.
“I am never not completely grateful,” she wrote. “It was a brutal first week full of tears and pain med depression, ulcers from meds, and constant fevers, but my @hartluck brought me through. (No one recovers from surgery like he does, he’s not real.) he brought me coffee in the shower, lugged around my 100-pound CPM contraptions everywhere I went, dried my tears, cooked me oatmeal, kept track of my meds, got me my phone charger, plugged in my compression machines, took my temp, made the bed, and talked me off the ledge.”

The “Lady Marmalade” singer later admitted that the agonizing experience had taught her that it’s acceptable to request and accept assistance.
Pink stated, “Life always reminds you that most setbacks are actually just pauses and opportunities to recalibrate and count your blessings,” and added, “I’m learning the gift of accepting help. My journey will be quick and intentional, And I will make a full recovery. For that, I am so blessed.”
