Lady Gaga undergoes hip surgery

Last week, Lady Gaga announced that she had to cancel the remaining dates on her Born This Way Ball tour so that she could undergo hip surgery.

Gaga’s team said the singer has a labral tear of the right hip that will require surgery to repair the issue, followed by strict down time to recover.

On Wednesday, Gaga kept fans in the loop, posting “Going in for surgery now. Thank you so much for sending me love and support. I will be dreaming of you.”

The singer also posted a photo of her wheelchair, which she’s named Emma.

Gaga originally broke the news of her injury to fans via her social media outlets last week, writing, “There's an unfortunate announcement coming out right now, concerning myself and the Born This Ball. I’m so sorry. I barely know what to say.”

“I've been hiding a show injury and chronic pain for sometime now,over the past month it has worsened,” wrote Gaga. “I've been praying it would heal. I hid it from my staff, I didn't want to disappoint my amazing fans. However after last night’s performance I could not walk and still can't.”
