Sara Bareilles is recovering from minor surgery, the singer shared on Instagram.

"I have been healing from a minor surgery removing a fibroid on my uterus," Bareilles wrote alongside a few photos of herself in the hospital.

Fibroids are typically non-cancerous tumors found in the uterine and are common among women in their 40s and 50s. However, if they go untreated they can lead to more serious issues.

"In the silence and solitude of the simple task of my body seeking its healed state, I have become vigilant about what I am intaking. Physically and metaphorically," Barreilles said.

The "Waitress" songstress also shared some advice with her fans.

"Be careful about how much negativity and noise you heap on your plate. It comes in abundance, but there are other beautiful things at the buffet," Bareilles wrote. "The slow pace of my recovery has simplified my world in a way, and I am reminded to absolutely acknowledge the chaos of a very strange/surreal time in our country and on our beloved planet, but ALSO remember to come back into the room I'm actually sitting in. Celebrate what is good about that too."
