On Wednesday, the 19-year-old reality star and activist shared a bathing suit photo to Instagram, showing off the upper-thigh scars from her gender confirmation surgery. "These are my scars on full display in #2019.
I experienced a major complication with my gender confirmation surgery and wound up back in the OR one week after the initial procedure," she wrote. "It was a tough journey, but experiences like that one only make us stronger in the end.
Jennings' TLC series I Am Jazz has followed the star through her first gender confirmation surgery in June 2018, and a follow-up in October 2018 after dealing with a complication.
In honor of 2018, she posted a "surgery flashback" and message to her fans. "#2018 was a rough year in my life.
