Bianca King took to social media to share an inspiring story about how she gained back her strength and flexibility after going through what she described as a “horrifying joint surgery.” 

In a lengthy Instagram post, Bianca revealed she was misdiagnosed in the country but eventually found doctors who helped her fix the daily pain she experienced while in the Philippines. 

“This is me starting from zero and gaining back my strength & flexibility. In July 2021, I had shoulder surgery called biceps tenodesis to fix a dislocating shoulder that was causing daily pain. I was misdiagnosed in the Philippines with a rotator cuff tear,” she shared. 

When she moved to Sydney, she found doctors who helped her fix her shoulder. 

“Luckily I did another MRI in Sydney and the diagnosis was joint instability and a split in my biceps anchor with calcific tendonitis. Inflammation and pain caused by the loose shoulder,” Bianca said.

“I had the best doctors in Sydney who once worked with the Australian rugby team. They fixed my shoulder! My right arm had muscle atrophy and had no strength to even lift a pot,” she added. 

The actress revealed she had to go through a six-month therapy which she said made a lot of difference. 

“After 6 months of physiotherapy to mobilize the stiff shoulder, I was ready to start building muscle again. I started working with @rebelwithus in Feb 2021 and the results are astonishing. @_katdaroza ’s understanding of physiology and care for my injury made the difference,” she said. 

“Our consistent workouts helped me to feel strong all over, with my shoulder 90% back to normal and my entire build looking more toned than ever. All in the comfort of my own home with minimal equipment!” she added. 

But it didn’t come easy for Bianca who had to go through pain and depression following her surgery.

“I was in so much pain after surgery and slept on a stack of 5 pillows for 3 months. I felt so weak and skinny. I was depressed being isolated at home during the peak of the pandemic, not being able to bathe myself properly or cook my own food, and mostly lying in bed feeling down and crying to my friends on the phone. I had to stop yoga for over a year,” she said. 

However, Bianca expressed her gratitude as she feels everything is slowly going back to normal. 

“Now I feel ALMOST back to normal but extremely grateful for having gone through that horrifying experience of joint surgery. And the best part of it all was my bond with my husband became stronger as he stepped up to take care of me when I couldn’t take care of myself,” she said.
