Love Island star Demi Jones has revealed the "painful" holes in her neck following her thyroid cancer operation.

The 22 year old bravely shared the sad news of her cancer diagnosis in May, after she underwent surgery to have her "potentially cancerous" lump removed from her neck.

And now, after having her second operation to remove the golf-ball-sized lump from her neck, Demi has continued to update her followers of her recovery.

In an Instagram Story shared from her hospital bed, the reality star said: "I just thought I'd update you as I'm finally awake and just had my lunch."


Panning the camera to the bandage and tube on her neck, she continued: "So I've had my full thyroidectomy. You can see the tube coming out of my neck there, which is probably the most painful thing about it.

"It goes to this drain here, which takes up all the blood.

"I feel surprisingly better this time. I don't know whether that's because I've been through it and knew what to expect."

Demi once again reiterated that the hole in her neck was "really painful".

Looking on the bright side, Demi told her followers: "The surgeon told me that over the past few weeks there's been a significant increase in the number of young girls getting checked at the department.

"He thinks it's because of me, which is absolutely amazing. So, make sure you're getting your lumps checked."

This comes after Demi revealed that she would have to take hormones for the rest of her life following her cancer treatment.

Speaking to New! magazine ahead of the operation, she said: "I've got to take some everyday hormone tablets too, just to make sure all my hormones are level, as my thyroid won't be there anymore."

When announcing her cancer diagnosis, Demi told her fans: "I'm staying very positive and I'm a strong girl so I'll be fine, thank you for your love and support always. I'll bounce back stronger."
