Rejoice, Lady Gaga fans! Mother Monster successfully underwent hip surgery yesterday and is on the mend — and she has a special message for you.

Gaga checked in for surgery Wednesday to fix a labral tear of her right hip which forced her to cancel the rest of her Born This Way Ball tour.

"Going in for surgery now," she tweeted in the morning. "Thank you so much for sending me love and support. I will be dreaming of you."

Afterward, the pop star updated her fans with a message on about how much they inspire her. Titled "Thank you," the message reads:


You really gave me a lot of strength today. Everything happened so fast, but when it came time to face it I reflected on the many stories and experiences you've shared with me about your lives.

"Meeting you backstage, reading your letters, watching you communicate with fans from around the globe to form a community that supports one another — You have completely blown my mind. As they wheeled me into surgery today, I thought about all of your pain and perseverance, your unique family situations, school environments, health issues, homelessness, identity struggles — sometimes you are so brave that it terrifies me. I wonder how it's even possible.

"So I thought to myself, I'm alive, I'm living my dream, and this is just a bump in the road. I'm grateful because this is temporary, and for some it is not. You have changed my life. I love you and am proud to be a part of your lives. If you can do it, I can do it too, and if we stick together we can get through anything. Love, Gaga"

Lady Gaga revealed her injury last week, saying she has been suffering in silence from synovitis for quite some time but didn't want to disappoint fans.
