Yuki’s fans are relieved that her surgery is a success

“We hope that everyone can give support and encouragement to her,” they said, adding that the singer will continue with several proceeding stages of her recovery.

It was earlier this month that Yuki was diagnosed with syringomyelia, a disorder in which a cyst or cavity forms within the spinal cord, after the singer underwent a medical check-up as part of a medical TV programme called, “Clinic Where You Can Meet the Doctor”.

On 22 June, Yuki went on Twitter to announce her social media hiatus, saying that she will be focussing on her surgery and subsequent rehabilitation.
