Get well soon! Cardi B said she needs to focus on her recovery after dealing with some serious plastic surgery complications. The “Bodak Yellow” rapper shared a photo of her extremely swollen feet via Instagram Stories and revealed that she’s been having this symptom a lot post-liposuction.

“Look how swollen my feet get every time I take a plane, imagine my body,” the 26-year-old captioned the post. Cardi explained how it also had a lot to do with her busy schedule, while noting this is why “doctors told [her] to chill on shows.”

“My stomach gets even more puffy,” the former Love & Hip Hop star added. “My feet and stomach burn when I get puffed up.” Back in May, Cardi confirmed that she had liposuction not long after she got a post-pregnancy breast augmentation. Unfortunately, it hasn’t been smooth sailing. “I have some news for y’all. I should have canceled today,” she said at Beale Street Music Festival.

Cardi confessed, “I shouldn’t really be performing because moving too much is gonna f— up my lipo. But bitch I’m still gonna get my mother—ing money back, let’s go!” The chart-topping artist later had to cancel some of her prearranged gigs due to swelling, so she issued a public apology via social media and explained why she decided to make her health a top priority.

“You know, I hate canceling shows because I love money,” she shared during an Instagram Live update on May 27. “I’m a money addict, and I get paid a lot of money, a lot of money for these shows … like I’m cancelling millions of dollars in shows.” Cardi further explained, “But like, health is wealth, so I have to do what I have to do. My breasts gotta f—ing heal, and it is what it is.”
