A week after cancelling the remaining dates on her Born This Way Ball Tour, Lady Gaga has successfully come through a surgery on her hip.Tweeting Wednesday,

That hip surgery seems to have gone as planned because she tweeted the following yesterday afternoon (Feb. 21) with a link to a letter.

In her letter she writes to her Little Monsters,

Monsters, You really gave me a lot of strength today. Everything happened so fast, but when it came time to face it I reflected on the many stories and experiences you've shared with me about your lives."

Gaga is also blown away by how her little community of monsters have come together throughout her career.

Lady Gaga's doctors are expecting her recovery time to last about four to six months, so that should give her plenty of time to work on and complete her upcoming album ARTPOP (due out sometime this year).
