Doja Cat has second throat surgery, shares hospital photos

Cat got her throat.

Doja Cat shared an update from the hospital after undergoing throat surgery to remove an abscess that was causing severe pain.

The “Say So” singer, 26, tweeted photos Thursday of herself recovering in her hospital bed while wearing a medical gown.

In another postDoja attempts to rap by spewing out the lyrics to Nicki Minaj’s verse in Trey Songz’ song “Bottoms Up,” though her voice sounds rough and weak.

Doja confirmed that she underwent the final procedure by responding“did it already” to a Twitter user who asked when she was going under the knife.

The “Get Into It (Yuh)” rapper revealed in May that she underwent tonsil surgery and had an abscess that “hurt a lot” removed from her throat.

Doja had to get her tonsils removed after an infection in her throat took a turn for the worse.

dr. just had to cut into my left tonsil. i had an abscess in it. my whole throat is f–ked so i might have some bad news for yall coming soon,” she tweeted at the time.

Doja shared that her throat became infected before the 2022 Billboard Music Awards earlier that month when she forgot to take her antibiotics and proceeded to drink and vape “all day long,” which caused the “nasty ass growth” on her tonsils.

She attempted to rap but seemed to have trouble getting the words out.

Doja also revealed that she would be quitting smoking her vape.

Due to the surgery, Doja had to cancel several performances this summer as she recovers.

“Unfortunately I have to have surgery on my tonsils asap. The surgery is routine but the recovery is going to take a while due to swelling,” she announced last month. “That means I have to cancel my festival run this summer as well as The Weeknd tour.
