Léa Clermont-Dion cancels all her professional commitments following an emergency operation
Emergency surgery for a large ovarian cyst and ovarian torsion last week, Léa Clermont-Dion must cancel all her professional commitments for the next few weeks to take care of her health.< /p>
Léa Clermont-Dion is once again using her social media to apologize to the people she has to give up on professionally.
“Considering an urgent operation that I received, I had to cancel all my commitments for the next few weeks, she wrote on Facebook. I am sorry for the inconveniences that this may have caused, especially for the conferences that I will not be able to give. I will also have to slow down my professional activities.”
Hospitalized and then operated on at Charles-Le Moyne Hospital when a large cyst and ovarian torsion risked causing ovarian necrosis, she claims to have since received many professional requests to which she is saddened not to be able to respond positively.
The host and documentary filmmaker took the opportunity to sing the praises and thank “the fabulous emergency team at Charles-Le Moyne Hospital who took care of my damaged body with such great delicacy”.< /p>

In an ephemeral post on Friday (now defunct), she admitted to underestimating post-surgery. She also said that she had received a lot of testimonials from women who had not been taken seriously when they confided in them about their stomach aches.
“With all my heart with those who are not lucky enough to find an end to these pains,” she wrote.
Funny fact, Léa Clermont-Dion said she was taken care of by “a badass anesthetist and Dr. Alexander” who were part of season 1 of the documentary series On guard 24-7.
“On the hospital table, naked under the blue blanket, vulnerable, little beanie on my head, I had a FAN + GIRL CRUSH moment”, she laughed.  ;
Last Thursday, the young mother recounted her health misadventures, for preventive purposes, in a long Instagram post. The risk of necrosis involved meant the death of the ovary possibly leading to fertility problems “and other hormonal inconveniences”.
“Moral of the story, take girls with stomach pain . It is essential to open the dialogue and raise awareness of women's health problems such as ovarian cysts, polycystic ovary syndrome, endometriosis,” she wrote at the time, stressing the importance of breaking taboos in order to to allow women to benefit from adequate care and preserve their health.
