The comments on the 9 news post are horrible. People just don’t get it do they? 😡😢

I’m not even going to read the comments because I know it will anger me. The news piece explaining what endo is an it’s symptoms...... ‘discomfort’?!?!?!?? 😡

Hi Syl. As an endo warrior myself, I thank you and all the other amazing people who have campaigned for more funding and awareness for this horrible, feral condition. x

I suffered from 22 to 38 when I miraculously had a gorgeous baby girl who is now 23. I had a number of surgeries and one involved removing my appendix which had endo in it. Pain was off the scale. Pain is a very personal experience. If you don't know or understand it, be grateful and have compassion for those who do have pain. In my day it was not something many people knew about. Lucky I had good medical care. For those who suffer you have my understanding. I'm glad there is a growing awareness about this 'invisible' condition.

At least it will create more awareness. It's the news not a medical show you can't go into the details of how painful it is and how it can effect fertility in some. I suffered for many years and had to explain to people what is was, it was difficult even for women to understand. It was even harder for men to understand. Just the fact it is on the news is good for sufferers. Every who has the condition is different too. I say good on her for speaking up.

I wish her all the best, how amazing that she happens to be the yellow wiggle 💛

Glad it might finally get some proper attention.

Poor bugger. Hopefully it can help to raise more awareness it’s a nasty illness.

Good on her for sharing and brining more awareness when she totally didn’t need to

Discomfort...

Janelle, Emma wiggle has endo too....

Makes me so angry to read all the comments in the back of that thread! Stupid, uneducated, horrible people making their opinions known. What a shame people will never understand until they have to face a life without children. It’s horrible! Dianne M. East

Emma Wiggle raising awareness while advising of her own battle with Endo:

https://facebook.com/thewiggles/videos/…

The Wiggles
To our Wiggly friends and fans,

Following medical advice, Emma will unfortunately not be able to perform at Dreamworld on April 17th and at our shows in South Australia from April 21st - 30th and the NSW and Canberra shows from May 12th - 20th as she will be admitted to hospital on April 17th to have an operation to manage the symptoms of chronic endometriosis*.

Emma has said: “I’m so sorry that I won’t be able to perform in QLD, SA, NSW and ACT in the upcoming Wiggle, Wiggle, Wiggle shows. I have been in a lot of pain for the past couple of years and on advice from my specialist, a difficult decision has been made for me to be urgently admitted to hospital to have an operation to manage the pain that endometriosis has brought on. A friend of mine wilI be dressing up just like me so you can still enjoy the 'Emma' experience in the show. Sing and dance along with your favourite bowitful songs and don't forget to bring your favourite bow and dress up in yellow! Lachy, Anthony and Simon Wiggle will all still be there at the show along with our friends Dorothy the Dinosaur, Henry the Octopus, Wags the Dog and Captain Feathersword. I would like to send my love to all the other women experiencing symptoms of endometriosis, it is such a debilitating and painful disease and I urge anyone suffering with the symptoms of endometriosis to put your health first and get a diagnosis so that you are in the best position to manage this crippling disease.”

Whilst Emma recovers, the shows in the remainder of April and in May will be going ahead to avoid disappointing fans that have purchased tickets. Playing the role of Emma and donning the yellow skivvy will be two of Emma’s friends, who are gifted singers and dancers just like Emma.

Emma and The Wiggles thank you all for your support and understanding.

*What is Endometriosis?

Endometriosis is a common disease in which the tissue that is similar to the lining of the womb grows outside it in other parts of the body.
10% of women suffer with endometriosis at some point in their life with the disease often starting in teenagers. Symptoms are variable and this may contribute to the 7 to 10 year delay in diagnosis. Common symptoms include pelvic pain that puts life on hold around or during a woman’s period. It can damage fertility. Whilst endometriosis most often affects the reproductive organs it is frequently found in the bowel and bladder and has been found in muscle, joints, the lungs and the brain.
