During a recent appearance on SBS’s “Healing Camp,” actress Shin Ae Ra discussed her hysterectomy surgery.
On July 28, “Healing Camp” broadcast its special three-year anniversary episode. Special guest Shin Ae Ra said “One day, I suddenly started bleeding. It turned out that it was a kind of benign tumor in my uterus… I chose to have a hysterectomy right away so that I could recover quickly. Even though the doctor warned me that I could not become pregnant and that I might experience psychological stress and other side effects, I said it would be okay.”
However, she revealed that her husband and fellow actor Cha In Pyo was opposed to her decision. “He thought his wife would be at a disadvantage after the surgery. Right before the surgery I told him to just let things be. I don’t remember exactly what I said, but it was something like ‘It’s not your uterus, it’s my uterus,’” she said laughing.
