What happened to Doja Cat’s throat?
Doja Cat just revealed she underwent surgery after contracting a throat infection.
On Thursday (19 May), the star explained: “Dr just had to cut into my left tonsil. I had an abscess in it. My whole throat is f***ed so I might have some bad news for y’all coming soon.”
She then explained her tonsils had been infected before and she was meant to be on a course of antibiotics, but forgot.
“I was taking antibiotics but forgot I was taking them and then I drank wine and was vaping all day long. Then I started getting a nasty growth on my tonsil so they had to do surgery on it today,” she wrote.
“He poked up in there with a needle twice and then sucked all the juice out and then he took a sharp thing and cut it in two places and squoze (sic) all the goop out. I cried and it hurt a lot but I’m ok.”
