Demi recently underwent surgery to remove her thyroid and is undergoing further iodine treatment.
On her recovery, the star took to her Instagram Story today to update her 1.2million followers on how she’s doing and reveal her neck scar.
She admitted she has “no motivation” due to the side-effects of her tablets, but insisted she’s a “boss b***h” who “gets up and goes anyway”.
Going make-up free, Demi had a candid chat with her fans as she took a snap of herself and then wrote over it.

She wrote: “Survivors have warned me about a drop in energy levels, but oh my don’t I feel it.
“I literally look so drained as well omg, I think I need to ask for my dosage to be upped.”
Demi continued: “My energy levels since my surgery.. I don’t know if it’s the fact I don’t have a thyroid anymore or that I am on these new tablets, I think it’s the tablets.
“I am tired all the time, I feel like I have got the energy of a 60-year-old. I have lost all motivation to do things and stay out long.”
Demi has under two operations after she was diagnosed with thyroid cancer earlier this year after the coronavirus pandemic delayed tests on her mystery lump six times.
Her first surgery was to remove the cancerous lump from her neck and the second operation was a thyroidectomy to remove her entire thyroid.
She was elated to recently learn the other side of thyroid was cancer free but still doesn’t know if she is completely clear.
During a Q & A with fans, she said: “I haven’t been told that I’m cancer free yet. I’m not actually sure if it’s completely gone or completely not gone yet.
“I’ve got to have some further iodine treatment in about six weeks’ time and some scans but hopefully by the end of the year I’ll know whether I’m cancer free.”
