Ria Atayde is on her way to recovery after undergoing a spine operation back in April to treat a herniated disc.
In a report by ABS-CBN News, the “Love or Money” actress shared getting the surgery made her feel like she got a new body.
“It really made me feel like I am brand new again, although after surgery, there is still some pain on my lower back,” said Ria.
She revealed she decided to proceed with the treatment because the pain reached the point where she could no longer find a comfortable position and it also started to affect her job.
“I really had it done para I could act properly. Ang hirap kasing iniisip na may body pain ka tapos a-acting ka pa. Ang hirap nun,” she said.
Ria’s back has not totally healed yet, but she’s well enough not to use medication anymore. “So far so good. Nothing is wrong naman. Although, there is still heaviness, I am okay. I am off painkillers already.”
Ria is one of the over 40 artists who signed with Star Magic during the Black Pen Day last weekend.
