Mel Schilling Opens Up About Heartbreaking Cancer Diagnosis
Mel Schilling, the beloved reality show expert, has recently disclosed a devastating cancer diagnosis, emphasizing the importance of taking health concerns seriously. In a candid Instagram post, Schilling shared the heartbreaking details of her diagnosis, including the symptoms that initially raised concerns. While filming the latest season of the widely watched reality show, Married At First Sight, the Australian dating and relationship coach, currently residing in the UK with her family, first became aware of her condition.
“About a month ago when I was filming in Australia I developed severe stomach cramps on set, I put it down to all the travel I’d been doing and the upset it caused to my system,” she recounts, sharing that her Sydney-based GP prescribed her laxatives, putting her discomfort down to constipation.
Expressing skepticism about the ease of resolving her health issues, Schilling chose to undergo further testing upon her return to the UK, where she currently resides with her husband and young daughter.
“On Thursday I was told I had colon cancer and in an instant, my whole life changed,” writes Schilling.
Accompanied by her husband and daughter, the TV personality announced that she is scheduled for surgery tomorrow to remove a 5cm tumor from her colon, a procedure crucial for her survival.
“It will be so tough to spend Xmas Day in hospital instead of being surrounded by family but getting rid of Terry (what I’ve named my tumour) will be the best present of all,” says Schilling, who due to her recent diagnosis has had to postpone her holiday plans of travelling to Northern Ireland with her loved ones.
Concluding her post with a message to her followers, Schilling encourages anyone with health concerns to thoroughly investigate their symptoms.
“If something doesn’t feel right, please, please don’t ignore it and if you don’t think the answers you have got are right, keep going until you do, it might just save your life,” she says.
