Lady Gaga undergoes surgery on damaged hip
February 22 , 2013
Lady Gaga has undergone surgery on her hip and thanked fans on Thursday for their support.
The pop star tweeted from her hospital bed the previous day, saying: “Going in for surgery now. Thank you so much for sending me love and support. I will be dreaming of you."
Lady Gaga, who has 34 million Twitter followers, was forced to cancel the remaining 21 dates of her two-year Born This Way world tour last week due to severe joint inflammation known as synovitis.
It later emerged that the 26-year-old had a tear in the labrum in her right hip that would require surgery.
The tour to promote her second album Born This Way began last April and has made an estimated $161 million.
Fans who have already bought tickets for the canceled shows will receive a refund.
