Hollyoaks Sophie Porley rushed into emergency surgery as doctors discover ovarian cyst

Sophie Porley has revealed she was rushed into emergency surgery to remove an ovarian cyst.

The 29 year old, who is best known for portraying Ellie Nightingale on Hollyoaks, took to her Instagram feed to update her 171,00 fans, explaining that she was in the process of freezing her eggs when doctors made the discovery.

Sharing a mirror selfie, she shared in the caption: "Thank you for the lovely messages I got after being MIA for 24 hours, I honestly didn’t think anyone would notice," followed by a red heart emoji.

She then continued: "I got my blood tests and scan back- my hormones are still not completely ideal but they have improved so after chatting to the doctor we decided to give it a try this month and hope for the best!

"It may just mean that we don’t collect as many eggs as they would hope to."

Sophie went on to share that medical professionals found a cyst in her ovary, which meant she needed to be operated on.

"I also had a cyst on my ovary so they booked me in to have that operated on yesterday. It all went well, I was just pretty sleepy all day from the sedation," she shared, assuring fans that she's fine.

Sophie then opened up on the egg freezing process and the difficulties she's experienced so far as she shared: "Something that I didn’t enjoy is injecting myself for the first time. They don’t show you in clinic how to do this. You get sent home with everything you need and a YouTube video. I’m not going to lie, I was s***ting myself and there were a few tears.

"I’m finding this quite an isolating experience as everything in the clinic feels quite rushed. They do this all day everyday so I’m sure it’s just another day to them. Whereas it’s overwhelming and new for me. But I’m two days in to doing my own injections and it’s already easier and It really didn’t hurt, it was more the thought of it."
