MAFS' Tracey Jewel reveals hospital visit following tumour diagnosis

It comes after the former MAFS star had her salivary gland removed due to the tumour.

Former MAFS star Tracey Jewel is back in hospital after revealing to her followers last year that she was diagnosed with a tumour and was forced to have her salivary gland removed.

"Been back in hospital - can’t wait to get back to my old self soon," she wrote alongside a snap of her in a hospital bed this week.

Her followers quickly shared their well wishes with the former reality star, with one user writing, "Get well soon, sending healing vibes."

"Sending you good vibes," another said.

"Get well soon, hope you're OK, big hugs xx," a third said.

"Wishing you a speedy recovery," someone else wrote.


In December, Tracey shared a snap of herself and her son after her salivary glands were removed, she wrote, "Recovering from having my salivary gland removed this week has not been easy. My speech has been affected and I have temporary facial paralysis that will last 3-6 months 😞 but this little guy brings me so much joy every day happy to chill with mum in bed.

"You never know what’s around the corner and after recovering from pneumonia 2 months ago I certainly didn’t expect this spanner in the works!"

"Sending you love and well wishes for a speedy recovery ❤️‍🩹 was is a stone in the salivary gland?" one user asked. "My 12 y/o son currently has one and it passed and now there’s another one and his neck is so swollen. The ENT said they will need to remove his salivary gland."

"Oh no it’s super rare in kids! Unfortunately a tumour for me I hope you’re son recovers well!" Tracey responded.

"My partner had a similar operation a few years ago but just a bit more complicated and I feel for you," another said. "The only advice I have is to be patient with yourself and not let it drag you down, things will improve, I promise you. Sending lots of love your way!"

"Sorry you're doing it tough love," a third said. "Sounds like your body needs a beautiful big rest and rebalance to regulate herself and get you back to wellness."


Before this, Tracey encouraged her followers to slow down, writing in November, "I’ve always connected my self worth to doing. I always had to be doing. Doing business, doing more for staff, for customers, for my family and burning myself to the ground in the process.

"These situations always came undone in the end. When I stopped doing so much people turned against me, businesses didn’t work out. And I’m done. I haven’t really shared my health journey because I don’t have all the answers yet."

She continued, "I did lose a crazy 12 kilos in less than a month and ended up in hospital with pneumonia and now I’m undergoing biopsy’s and testing which I’m waiting for the results.

"For the first time in a long time I’m doing a break. I’m creating space to just be and not do. It’s going to be tough to realise we are worthy no matter what and no matter what we do."
