'General Hospital' star Kelly Monaco suffered from chronic pain for many years and has now decided to get candid about her journey and experience so far. 

Kelly plays Sam on the hit soap 'General Hospital' and has not been very active on social media lately. However, given her recent hip surgery, she has taken to social media to share her experience with her fans and followers. She also took the opportunity to thank all her near and dear ones for their help and support. 

She admitted that the pain that she had been feeling for years was absolutely excruciating. She uploaded a picture of herself from the hospital bed and wrote, "After over a decade of suffering from chronic, excruciating pain from a torn labrum in my hip, I [am] finally taking the first steps in bettering my health and myself". 

Kelly also took the chance to thank all her fans and loved ones for their love and wrote, "Looking forward to MANY positive changes coming soon! Thank you @heathmonster for holding my hand and drying my tears pre and post surgery… then stocking my home to keep me comfy while healing". 

She also thanked her boss from GH for his support and also her co-star Billy Miller (Drew) who is her former on-screen husband. "Thank you (FrankValentini) @generalhospitalabc for the beautiful ‘get well’ flowers. … and thanks to that guy at work who always has my back, for being a cheer up florist and an awesome handyman!!! #staytuned #GH #smallbutmighty".
