The photographer updated her Instagram followers by sharing a snap of herself eating cereal in a hospital bed, revealing she had been struggling with pain since undergoing the procedure.

Jenny asked people to say a prayer for her and admitted she was surprised to have had to come back to hospital.

"Can't believe I had to come back to Beaumont," she captioned the photo. "Please say a prayer they can manage the pain for me."

Last week, Jenny said that the surgery to remove the tumour had went well.

She shared a photo of herself with her husband Martin King, explaining how she was "grateful" to have the last week behind her.

“And just like that, Professor Ciarán Bolger decided to let me home to relax," she wrote.

"I’ve never been so grateful, grateful to have the last week behind me. It looks great, just one more little test to come back.

"But for now it’s time to chill out in the couch and start the road to getting Jenny back to where she actually belongs.”

Earlier this week, Jenny sent out another update ahead of her surgery, telling her followers: "I thought I’d never see this day. I’m on the other side of surgery and it’s just great.

“A brain tumour was removed and to Professor Ciarán Bolger’s knowledge, he seems to have taken it all.

“I am so grateful to have a wonderful surgeon and incredible hospital staff. Thank you to every single one of you for saying prayers and lighting candles."

Jenny previously had a tumour removed successfully in 2011. Late last year, she confirmed that she had been for a brain scan and received the diagnosis that the tumour had returned.
