Loose Women star Andrea McLean has been updating fans via Twitter as she recovers from a hysterectomy operation.

The 46-year-old recently revealed live on air that she would be undergoing a hysterectomy, after consulting her doctor and deciding for "personal reasons" that she should have the op.

Andrea has since revealed everything "went well" with her surgery and fans recently saw her send a message into Loose Women to thank everyone for their support.

She appeared on her porch and said: "Hi everyone, I'm home now and I just wanted to say a big thank you for your lovely messages. I'm outside, I'm on my favourite place in the whole world which is my porch so I'm sure that'll help me get better very quickly."

Her recovery hasn't exactly been pain free, though.

Andrea revealed that she had tried to brave no painkillers, but was soon left regretting her decision. She tweeted: "Been a bit silly today and tried to get through without painkillers. Day 5 post op, not the wisest decision #hysterectomyerror #ouch."

She also added in a second tweet: "Thank you for all your lovely messages. I'm sending gentle hugs to those who've shared this experience or are about to go through it."

Andrea first revealed she had opted to have a hysterectomy during a discussion on Loose Women. The panel had been speaking about whether they discuss their health with their partner, prompting Andrea to tell viewers at home: "Just to let you know, don't worry if you don't see me for a month of so, I'm actually going to be at home convalescing. I'm having a hysterectomy tomorrow [22 September]."

Andrea didn't go into detail about her surgery, but added that there were "lots of personal reasons" for her choosing to go ahead with it. "I did go to the doctors and talk about it," she said.
