MANILA - Actress Angel Locsin on Friday expressed her gratitude to her fans for their unwavering support as she posted photos of her in a hospital in Singapore moments after undergoing medical treatment for her disc bulge in her spine.
On her Instagram account, the 30-year-old Locsin wrote: "I'm still a little bit groggy and sore but happy and thankful tapos na ang first stage of the procedure. Thank you all for the prayers! Hoping this is it na."
In a follow-up post, Locsin said: "Another photo before heading to lab with the Filipino nurses who took really good care of me. Thank you so much! Mabuhay kayo!"
Locsin did not specify that exact medical treatment that she went through.
Last October, Locsin confirmed that she will no longer be portraying the Filipino superheroine Darna after her rigorous training for the role led to her developing a disc bulge in her spine.
At the time, she said that the decision to pull her out of the project for fears of permanent damage to her health was final and made mutually with Star Cinema and ABS-CBN.
In a recent interview with ABS-CBN News, however, Locsin's boyfriend, television host Luis Manzano, hinted that there might still be a chance for his girlfriend to reprise the iconic role.
"Sana. Siguro not just dahil sa clamor ng tao but kahit ang management ay nakikita na 'Oo nga ano baka naman kaya pa ngang hintayin si Angel.' So sana," he said.
