GH actress Kelly Monaco shared news with her fans on Instagram.

After over a decade of suffering from chronic, excruciating pain from a torn labrum in my hip, I finally took the first steps in bettering my health and myself. Looking forward to MANY positive changes coming soon!”

Kelly Monaco also thanked her good friend Heath Freeman for being there with her for the ordeal.

She wrote: “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.”

But that wasn’t her only thank you. Kelly also tagged General Hospital’s IG account and showrunner Frank Valentini. She thanks Frank and the show for get well flowers they sent.

Finally, Kelly Monaco didn’t name Billy Miller (aka GH’s Drew Cain) but said: “thanks to that guy at work who always has my back, for being a cheer up florist and an awesome handyman!!!” 

That came with a pic of a bouquet of flowers and a black hat on it with the skull and Deus logo that she and Billy favor.


Kelly Monaco has suffered from this condition for decades. She has finally taken some time for herself to deal with it. Her character Sam McCall has finally had a break since her hot steamy love affair and marriage to Drew Cain (Billy Miller) is on the rocks.

Sam is not involved in a love affair just yet which gives Kelly Monaco time in real life to get on this much-needed surgery. General Hospital fans are still patiently waiting for the JaSam reunion with Jason Morgan (Steve Burton).
