MY SECRET SURGERY.


what’s up everybody welcome back to my channel today’s video it’s a little heavy it’s something I never thought I would be sitting in front of a camera and talking about but I think this is definitely a new chapter for me in my life and I would love to share some more things and maybe there are people out there that have similar problems or similar medical conditions as the one I am about to reveal you saw the thumbnail that’s real footage and you were about to see some very graphic content not blood no cutting nothing crazy like that but there are some graphic scenes of me in the hospital room being put under anesthesia I look very disturbed for a minute it’s very weird… there’s a lot happening so if you are bothered by medical stuff I’m just warning you now there will be that type of footage throughout this video! so today we’re going to be talking about a very dark medical secret that I’ve had for a while we’re talking since I was six years old I first noticed this problem I had no idea what it was at the time obviously at such a young age but we know any like have been embarrassed by something your whole life you’ve had something a secret forever you’ve never told a stranger you’re like family your mom is really the only one that knows that’s what this is and once you find out what it is you may think it’s nothing you may pick oh good that’s whatever to me it’s been something that has hindered my life it’s something that has haunted me and it involves chewing it involves swallowing it involves my esophagus so recently me and my assistant Madison went for a crazy procedure where we had our esophagus is dilated and widened to help with a problem we have now if you’re probably like what the fuck are you guys talking about we have a condition that is really hard to pronounce it is a tongue twister it is called yo Cinna philic esophagitis okay bitch that is a tongue twister so I’m gonna pull up the definition now the doctor will be on camera shortly in the operating room but basically I have a condition where I have problems swallowing food now let me just get the dick sucking jokes out the way bitch I can take an 11-inch or down this throat now my swallowing right here is not the problem I throat is good honey I actually don’t even have a gag reflex I cannot make myself throw up I haven’t thrown up in years except one time in Hawaii a few years ago never again I could take my finger I don’t choke I don’t make any noise nothing bothers me right yes that’s why Nathan’s here but all sexual jokes aside there is something severely wrong with my esophagus which is way lower right here gonna pulp the definition and on Google it says that it is a allergic inflammatory condition of the esophagus that involves eosinophils a type of white blood cell symptoms are swallowing difficulty high food impaction remember that a vomiting not me thank God and heartburn definitely experienced that how do you treat it there’s really not there’s no cure okay so I have to live with this for the rest of my life now a lot of you probably like what is all this really mean basically when I was six years old it was the first time I choked on a piece of food like actually choked where I couldn’t breathe and it was like it was like right here and I’ll never forget that fear that panic even though it was so long ago I will never forget the fear of almost choking to death No thank God in Orange County the fire department was down the street they saved my life I’ve never eaten a piece of steak since then it’s not that’s crazy right I just have this fear any food that I’ve ever had an issue with I’ve never eaten again it’s very scary so if I don’t chew my food correctly it gets stuck now when I was six years old that incident I actually choked ever since then I’ve had about eight or nine times throughout my life recently two years ago where I will get food stuck now it’s a very bizarre situation because I’m not choking right I’m not like it gets stuck where I can’t even swallow my own saliva which is obviously horrifying it happens when I’m very stressed out it happens if I don’t chew correctly and I’m just like talking and overthinking and the food gets stuck and what do you have to do you have to go to the emergency room you have to get the food knocked you got to be put under or you have to have it removed I’ve had scenarios where the doctor kept me awake and they took a clear tube and ice water and shoved it down my throat and knocked the food out and pulled it out and there was like a mushroom I’ve been put under where they’ve had to had a gastro surgeon come in and removed the food so this is something that has haunted me my entire life until about five years ago I kind of didn’t acknowledge it it was just something to happen to me and I didn’t want to really talk about it but five years ago it was really bad and I was on a photo shoot I was in Wisconsin on set actually shooting the single for love to my Cobain my last single I ever wrote and I got food stuck and it was so bad and so scary I said I have to find someone who could help me so after some extensive research on this condition I googled it I found people that had similar situations and who and if you’ve watched my video about my mother recently she has the same condition didn’t know that it’s like insane so I find dr. Edwards share and I see him I have a visit I have a consultation I even set up an appointment to get this operation done that I’m about to show you and I bitched out I didn’t do it I got scared it wasn’t the right timing I kept putting it off I changed the appointment and five more years went by a lot of it had to do with my teeth so if you don’t know I’ve had my whole mouth restored prior to that my back teeth were really bad okay so this wasn’t just about cosmetics or being insecure it also hindered me and made my life worse because normal people’s teeth obviously you bite down and your teeth hit perfectly mine was like this where I could barely chew my food correctly because my teeth were inverted I’m gonna do a whole teeth story one day because I want to show you guys the before and afters and what’s what really happened cuz it was a hellacious journey so it has been such a battle I love eating I eat all the time you guys know I have a very fast metabolism so I do eat all the time I just have to chew five times more than the average person so if you ever around me or you ever see me bitch everyone’s meals done and I’m like halfway done something bad happened a few months ago I was eating a hot dog on a bun the bun was dry I hadn’t eaten all um that morning I’d filmed something I was like yeah we’re gonna go to a barbecue and I went to my friend’s house and I literally was in the house for two minutes chewed stuck and normally have to go to the hospital but for a few hours I let myself sit and relax and it’s still stuck I was panicking and like Maddie I donno what to do I need to go to a hospital and then I was like I’m just so tired like sometimes I know it sounds so dumb but I was like so tired I didn’t want to go to the hospital for the first time so another six hours went by girl took a few hits I relaxed I was in bed in one position for hours like sitting up like and the bread finally shifted and I’ll never forget that fear melting away and the food went down and I was like oh my god I cannot believe it went down and I was so scared about happening again the next day I went to the doctor and I made another appointment went back to dr. Cher and in the midst of all this I find out that my assistant Madison has the same condition now what are the odds were all from Orange County something’s in the water Huntington Beach I want the mayor to call me so my mom has this problem I have this problem now this person that has entered my life has the same problem and it’s like whoa it’s so weird so she she goes mad he goes I’ve had the surgery was it’s not a surgery it’s like you’ll see what it is it’s not cutting it’s not blood but it’s widening it’s dilating so Maddie had this operation done once and they it helped it dilated her but it’s been years now here’s the thing there’s no cure your throat and your esophagus will shrink back you know naturally some people it’s quick some people it’s takes years who knows so she’s felt herself a little weird so I’m like you know what we’re pulling a double girl what’d you say earlier Christian fuck man you got a laugh during a serious video you guys life’s dark I’m like I have to laugh at my own condition what am I gonna do cry every night so two holes for the price of one I said you know what let’s boat let’s do a double widening all right now I’m gonna take you into the hospital room and you guys are about to see what went down all right you guys I am about to get my I’ll forget something whitened I know this is the craziest thing ever so we got the blends iakh is here and we’re gonna put on our scrubs so I go in there and maybe some of you out there going are you nervous honestly I’m ready I’m not I’m ready to get this issue handled and taking care of it’s definitely it’s been a long time coming I should add Gucci make me accounting myself it’s a long evening what happened last night oh it’s working okay so he’s gonna die late today yeah I’ve never done it before definitely give you more information about what he finds there after he takes a look – I’m gonna get it off those Corey today so what we’re gonna do today yeah you’re gonna breathe it on your own yeah dr. ose you take a look down there I’m expecting to find some narrowing some significant thickening of the Rico’s me down gently violent biopsy it and then you decide what to do in the future okay they decide to be some swallowed steroid it’s shit we need to or this may take you for the next you know your two or three whatever okay these are two dollars and fifty cents I’ll write you guys I am about to be put under we’re gonna do some heavy Twilight sleep and I’m gonna be passed out I don’t think it was ever seen being passed out on this channel before so it’s about to get interesting nice and quiet yeah like you’re a tea party yeah that’s the drugs a little bit oh yeah sure today I feel like we’re in a wolf of Wall Street with the song on it perfect how are you shy why do you let me live okay belly button that way very fast yeah 15 30 seconds thirty Seconds Chris okay you suppose our egress here we go Oh yep all right oh that is a little hard to watch seeing yourself go under the eyes rolling back in my head it was very disturbing the first time that Chris played for me I was like whoa that is so obviously I’m under I have no idea what went down so you may wonder Geoffrey why don’t you show more so I guess while that was under my esophagus was so narrow the camera and the equipment was really irritating me so I was kind of like what were you saying Christian that guys yeah so it’s called imagining you’re under and your body is coughing and sneezing so they didn’t want me to show it look like I was having a seizure or anything cause it was nothing wrong with me I’m medically completely fine yeah I looked probably crazy so there probably a girl cut so they asked Christian to leave for a minute so they could finish the procedure obviously and then after mine they did Madison’s right away so we first of all what do you guys think about all this what do you think about the fun is you just watched does it creep you out a creeped me out for real but I wanted to share this because I don’t know if there are more of you out there that have this issue or maybe you just might learn something new and I just kind of wanted to share things that I am afraid to talk about and I wanted to challenge myself so this is really why I made this video now we’re gonna but we’re about to have some laughs because this is kind of like a long loop we’re about to happen but there is footage I forgot existed where me and Madison come out of anesthesia and well let me bring Maddie in here we’re gonna watch this for the first time so she doesn’t know this but she’s coming over right now I had to come over here and I said hey we’re about to play something funny now we’ve done this procedure a few weeks ago she is know what’s about to happen so hi girl hi so Madison is usually behind the scenes but she’s my personal assistant and she travels everywhere with me and you also have see is gonna feel like esophagitis it’s a tongue-twister it’s a tongue-twister now when we both bonded over that how do you bond over an odds what are the odds so you had the procedure done once yeah like for almost five years ago and they were able to widen it a little bit but they told me you know as the years go by you’re probably gonna tighten up again so you’re gonna want to do it probably one maybe two more times over the next like ten years so sounds like my badger plasti vaginal rejuvenation right yeah yeah so I was skeptical but it actually worked for her so you know what great but it’s been it was yours for you so you’re ready for round two I was ready ready for another widening the perfect time you haven’t even seen the footage from me being put out there yet but I do want to show you us coming out of anesthesia okay we’re gonna watch that I’m so scared I’ve watched a clip of this and I was like oh my god I didn’t I’ve never seen it edited right here in our faces so we’re gonna see us both coming out of anesthesia and I don’t remember anything really I don’t know how did we get home do Bo burrow didn’t oh you drove us never laid out in the back seat and I was in the front cuz you were what you went under they had you under longer oh let’s talk about this oh my god I had more anesthesia as well so you were like way more groggy than I was cuz mine was like I think mine was like 20 minutes so it was like super quick my god over about like 30 hmm so you were much more out of it than I was when we got in the car you’re like I just need to lay down and go just lay flat in the backseat this looks like to blackout while drinking or no yeah kinda whoof yeah y’all are crazy I slept in the back of your car yeah okay we’re just gonna click play we’re just gonna dive into it we’re turning up the volume and oh yeah here we go Jeffrey asia-pacific that take that is the we’d rather watch yeah it was crazy pausing oh wow Ida flops right back over so I must have fell back asleep right Chris or no good good all right oh my god my honor like fuck it up I need help where’s the star mayor let’s do this but I can’t just say no I dig me let me down no it’s a burning right now with a tiny bit for no craziness yeah I like I need cold stone now I like these go ahead what personnel do you want I want Nate this down the game we have to be a lot of calories one which I want to go to Red Robin I want to go to Chili’s I’m gonna go to Waffle House I’m gonna go to crab roe crack copper barrel after barrel cracker bro I need you bitch I know you’re all enjoy a legend and hate me but I need your pancakes okay what’s up girl like the worst I’ve ever seen holy man solodar two areas that a pretty darn tight okay I’m up here in the middle yeah i dilated very very carefully okay I could not get the scope to into the stomach wow that rare is about 11 millimeters in diameter well it’s usually such a situation and dilated enough you can smoke through but I was being a married that’s the special careful okay as I mentioned not too little not too much yeah so I’m not sure how much detail you want but until I got a so called dilation effect okay meaning old terror the mucosa and we need to come back a little bit more okay I think I swallowed steroids what y’all abandoned that me would be a good plan okay wow yeah that was her not too bad oh she was a piece of cake doesn’t want to get married but she’s there I’m not really an older older man but she was in my throat and we’re not dating I’m like new experiences I don’t remember any of that that such that is so weird to see I am like fully on another planet I don’t really I don’t remember I don’t I remember like one sentence I said I think like about eating everything else a full blur a full blink Wow how the human brain is weird how do you still see yourself like that I think if I would have seen myself how you saw yourself a beat even though that is really hilarious to me cuz I don’t remember I thought everything was so funny okay so as you guys saw he said that mine so yours wasn’t his narrow obviously yeah she’s had it before and then he dilated her even wider which is amazing have you had any problem since not anything major no just like more more normal heartburn which is yeah part of this mission now you guys saw him say that he could even fit the scope down where they could normally do it and someone’s like what chest kind of area yeah it’s like right here I couldn’t do it and I was like whoa he said one of mine was the worst ever I was just like great but hey if this is what’s wrong with me you got to deal with it so since then I have been on the steroid medication it has helped I have had no choking or weird swallowing issues I’ve had instance where maybe felt a little weird but I was like nothing like oh my god I’m freaking out yeah and everything’s been fine now what did the doctor say that I have to do go back yeah they want me to go back so they want to try again in a few months if I’m up for it I don’t know I’m always very scared about being put under I kind of have like I don’t care but I do care type of thing in my head you just never know what can go wrong that’s the scary part so I rarely do those things but I really wanted to get this procedure done I’m so glad we did it together I never knew Matt bond over us something like this before so are you glad you did it yes thank you so much of course and I am so happy I did it finally I think it was long overdue and I’m glad I got over the fear what do you guys think of all this I want to I want to hear what they have to say meet you let us

  1. Sometimes that happens to me and it gets stuck in like my sternum or where ever but after a while it goes away. That must be scary

  2. I know I shouldn’t laugh but the bit were you said there was a mushroom and held up an invisible mushroom was so funny,you are naturally funny.

  3. Yeah to be honest I have a secret and it haunted me as well I never really told anyone my secret and I told my bf and he still loves me as I am

  4. My mom had to have that surgery and I've noticed I've started having trouble swallowing my food. I can feel it getting stuck after I swallow my food. It actually kinda hurts. I'm like…thanks Mom!! But I'm glad you did this so I can see how it's done and I'm not so afraid. Thanks Jeffree!!!

  5. I don’t have the same thing but I do have acid reflux
    Which means I get heart burn and I have to take a tablet every day
    And my mum,grandpa and two uncles have reflux to
    And my grandpa didn’t take the tablet so he had to go to the hospital

  6. Jeffree, are you familiar with APFED and CURED? Great organizations that provide education and raise money for eosinophilic disease research. My son has EoE. Not a fun disease at all. Thank you so much for sharing!

  7. I also have this andd it can be extremely embarrassing in many situations for me. I also have trigger foods like rice, steak, fruits even, lucky mine is not as life-threatening, I can usually breathe, though it is difficult, my esophagus is completely blocked and usually involves me unable to get anything in or out and is EXTREMELY uncomfortable and i have to wait for it to go down. I'm so happy for you that you have had this procedure done and have found some relief! Hopefully I can have something similar done someday 🙂

  8. My teeth were so bad I had to have a spacer in the roof of my mouth and it made me choke constantly it was awful!!

  9. I wonder if my dad has a form of this? Decades ago when I was with my parents for their anniversary my dad choked. His esophagus spasmed on a noodle, he hadn't even bit into his steak. We had to go to the er. He still has those spasms and I used to beat on his back right there at the neck, shoulders, and back come together until he could swallow again. Sometimes his nitroglycerin will relax everything would work. And I've had to learn the hymelic(sp?) maneuver. I wonder if I'm starting it to have that happen too. I'll be eating and like I can't swallow and I panic but a sip of water or whatever and I'm good.

  10. Jeffree, you will probably never read this, but If you do, I hope that you are taking care of your health and are doing better now. You are such a beautiful person. I have been binge watching your videos since Shane's series came out and see a side of you that is serious and that I want to know more about. And I think your music is awesome. I hope you decide to release more music in the future.

  11. Holy shit.. I fucking have this Jesus I thought my mom and I were the only one’s that had this issue 😨. Holy fuck I literally am in shock that Jeffree Star has the same fucking condition that I have!!!! I’m bizarrely honored 😭

    Thank you so much for sharing this video, this truly makes me feel happy to know That there are other people who have this condition, and that I’m not a freak.. well, wait..

  12. It creeped me out cuz that thing that was keeping track of your life started beeping and that's bad apparently

  13. Fuck when people get put to sleep by anaesthetic those medical professionals are incredible at their job amazing stuff! Really hands down to the medical experts awesome job done on Jeffree and Madison ❤️

  14. Jeffrey I also have the exact SAME THING WRONG WITH ME!! It is very scary 😱😨😱😨 it's terrifying never have had nothing done either…I'm too scared….

  15. I'm definitely interested in the surgery as well,I hope you are doing well love you Jeffrey and I will definitely be visiting the doctor about my condion also, my prayers are with you!!

  16. I get food stuck as well. I have also almost choked to death a few times. I don't have this disorder, I just eat too fast.

  17. Love this! As a nurse, I want to see more!!! I have the same issue- it sucks to swallow liquid sometimes 🙄🤷‍♀️

  18. Absolutely Jeffre, you have to this again. For your own health. This episode was very helpfull. I have never heard of that condition. God will always be with you. So take the chance. Keep healthy. Love ya! 🤗😎😍

  19. I just came back to this video after some time right? I just want to thank Jeffree bcuz this video truly did raise my suspicions about my problem. and after multiple tests and procedures, I got diagnosed with achalasia. there are a lot of painful symptoms including the food getting stuck like he said, it happens to me every time I eat.. I have had multiple egd's and also egd's with botox. I have been under 6 times since May. It's awful, there is no cure for mine like he says. I My doctors have not even figured out a procedure that works. So just thank you so much.

  20. Honestly… I thought I was alone. I've had problems swallowing and I can just feel a massive lump stuck… I'm sick every day because of it, I repeatedly have heartburn every single day and I've never been to the doctor (other than being in the hospital to get it removed) because I don't know what to do about it…

  21. I was definitely scared for you watching this, I thank God youre alright and I thank the doctors that took good care of you, but this was definitely scary!

  22. My daughter was just diagnosed with EoE. I just came back to this video to see if that’s what you said you had. Have you had another procedure done again?

  23. Ok I have the same problem and my food gets stuck like almost every day but I have never had to go to the emergency room eventually my food will just go down but it hurts so bad

  24. Ok so I have had brain surgery and spinal fusion surgery, sooo, it was extremely interesting to see that footage and made me wonder if I looked like that once I was under 🤨

  25. I'm late to the Jeffrey party. Recently coming over from Shane's channel. I love these more personal videos of you!

  26. I have eosinophillic esophagitis too ☹ not many people know what it is and I never knew of someone who also has it so this video was interesting to me. Hope you feel better I never knew you could do this procedure

  27. What a brave video to make. My husband suffers from swallowing difficulties resulting from cancer treatment. You've given me hope that there is help for him. Thank you. ❤❤

  28. I finally found out that I’m not the only one with this problem. I’ve had for years and my parents literally thought nothing of it and I was terrified if eating because I would choke almost every time. At least now I know that there is actually a scientific term for it. Hallelujah 😂

  29. I had Esophageal Atresia ( Un finished growth of the throat ) – Birth defect

    12 years later ( Had surgery a Boston children's hospital )

    I'm 14 now I swallow much better . Can eat now!!

  30. Holy shit, I'm watching/going through all your videos right now and for you to mention OC was awesome. I'm so sorry for your experience during that, I couldn't imagine going through that. One of my worst fears is suffocation. But I grew up in OC and nobody I've met talks about it. Not to mention you posted this video 2 days after my birthday! I think its amazing I stumbled upon one of your videos I haven't seen. You're such a good person. Love you Jeffree <3

  31. My five year old brother came up and saw I was watching this and said ,” Oh my grinch. What did she just put his head?!”

  32. Omg I have the same problem. Dysphagia is very real and I swear, when I was given a breathing tube during an appendectomy, it fucked me up!!!!! The hospital said they used a standard sized breathing tube on me and I’m 5’0”!!! Thank you for posting this! I cannot swallow anything, even liquids!!!! I’ve lost 60lbs since last December!!!! Choking on everything is scary!!!! I even chew my food correctly and Still I cannot swallow!!!!! Love you for posting this!!!!!!!!!!

  33. My Dad had this procedure and seeing him come out of it and waking up was so weird but kinda funny. He legit fell asleep trying to drink a cup of water and eat saltine crackers that they gave him. I felt like I was babysitting because he kept wanting to fall asleep.

  34. Just got out of the hospital for the 10th time this year another 10 day stay for an infection in my intestines I cant seem to get rid of. I've been dealing with this for almost 2 years and it has slowly ruined my life. I can only work a couple days a week because I'm still so weak. Every couple months the infection comes back I get super sick and someone takes me to the hospital and they usually keep me for at least 10 days. The last time was the worst because the infection wasn't responding to antibiotics and the infection started to spread I remember hardly anything of the first 4 days except not being able to stay awake and my fever spiking to 105. Finally they got the infection under control but it came back like it always does. I have been in the hospital so much that sometimes I refuse to go until I get so bad that I cant walk because I'm just so fucking tired of being in hospitals. Jeffree I know you wont see this but watching your videos really brightens my day especially when I'm sitting in the hospital. I'm so sorry you are going through this I bet its terrifying. Thank you for always being one of the only channels on youtube that inspires me and makes me smile. Oh and btw you are absolutely STUNNING!

  35. This is huge, how Jeffreestar can share and make us feel part of his life, the way he talks, the way he explains things, is very nice, professional, smoothing kind, that i really appreciate.
