Amy Dowden reveals Strictly star stepped in to help with...
Amy Dowden has opened up about the treatment she’s been receiving following her blood clots, and how one Strictly Come Dancing star stepped in to lend a helping hand.
Earlier this week, the dancer revealed that she had been rushed to hospital shortly after her rounds of chemotherapy for her breast cancer had ended.
Having recently also fractured her foot by breaking her fifth metatarsal, Amy explained that a blood clot had been discovered on her lung, and there were concerns that the clot would travel to or impact her heart, which thankfully it didn’t.
In a series of new videos posted on her Instagram Story, the 33-year-old spoke to her followers about how much joy it brought her to visit the set of Strictly once again on Saturday night, during which it was announced that Nigel Harman had been forced to withdraw from the competition with his partner Katya Jones.
Amy stressed how tough the past few weeks have been for her throughout her health struggles, and how she has been taking measures to try and prevent any further blood clots from developing.
‘Just being at Strictly, honestly – it’s so much easier being there and being part of it with all my friends [rather than] sitting at home watching it. Mentally… it’s been tough, so I just need it. I really do. But I am listening to my body, and I am resting up,’ she assured her followers.
‘I’m getting used to these blood-thinning injections, that’s for sure.’Amy spoke to her fans in a new update on her Instagram Story (Picture: @amy_dowden)
The Welsh dancer continued, outlining how she had been using blood-thinning tablets for several months, but required something stronger.
‘I was on blood-thinning tablets, you see, since August, because I got two blood clots in my arm, and then to have developed another blood clot on my lung, obviously I need something stronger, so I’ve gone onto the injections, which I’m getting used to,’ she said.
‘I don’t like these injections, I’ve had them a lot when I’ve had long hospital stays with my Crohns and that, and after my surgery. But I’m a bit rubbish at giving them to myself at the moment because they do sting, and I’ve had a lot of injections into my stomach recently. It’s a bit tender.’
So on Saturday night when Amy was on the set of Strictly, fellow dancer Neil Jones gave her the help that she needed.
‘So big shoutout to Mr Neil Jones, who helped me last night, because it’s like a proper beasting. I’ve had so many people message me and say, “Yeah they’re nasty, aren’t they?”’ she shared.Neil helped with the injections, she revealed (Picture: BBC/PA Wire) Amy has been seen a few times on Strictly this year (Picture: BBC)
‘I will get used to them I know. But I just wanted to say a massive thank you. Please don’t worry – I am listening to my body, but I’m also doing what I need to do for myself mentally as well. But thank you. It means so much. Sending so much love and strength to anybody who needs it.’
In mid-November, Amy shared a picture on Instagram showing herself wearing a medical boot, revealing that she had fractured her foot.
She said at the time that she felt ‘absolutely gutted and heartbroken’, as the injury meant that she couldn’t dance on Strictly, as she had been due to take the dancefloor during the semi-final.
The Strictly Come Dancing results show airs tonight at 7.20pm on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
