Fitness influencer Ashy Bines shared a worrying health update with her fans earlier this year, revealing she has been diagnosed with a brain aneurysm.

Now the mother-of-two, 35, has been advised by neurologists to undergo brain surgery.

‘I KNOW I’ll be ok ok BUT this is definitely the scariest thing I’ve gone through and will go through,’  she continued. 

‘However how LUCKY am I they have found it and I can get surgery, some people like my uncle and Gran didn’t get this opportunity and left us too soon,’ she added.

In March, Bines revealed she had been diagnosed with a brain aneurysm.

She shared the shock news to Instagram, revealing that it was discovered when she went to the hospital after losing her sight.

Bines posted a video of her arriving with her family and captioned it with some alarming words: ‘I’ve lost my sight three times in the last week. Decided to go to a doctor because we were starting to get worried.

‘Got a CT scan, they found a small aneurysm. Pretty scary as husband Steve has had a huge one removed and I also have this run in my family. Lost a young uncle and a nan to an aneurysm.

A brain aneurysm is a weak or thin spot on a blood vessel in the brain that inflates and fills with blood. 

It can be life-threatening if not adequately treated.

Fortunately, the survival rate for sufferers is quite high if identified and treated promptly.

Bines added she had the full support of her husband Steve and their children Taj and Tala, both of whom had visited her in the hospital.

She lives on the Gold Coast with her husband Steve, who she married in 2014, and their two children.
