Both the band and Muñoz did not specify the reason why she underwent a major surgery.

Also included in Ben&Ben’s announcement is a “life update” from Muñoz herself, where she assured fans that the surgery went well and that she was okay.

“There’s still pain, of course, but I feel so much better than yesterday. At alam kong mas magiging okay pa sa mga susunod na araw (And I know that I will be much better in the coming days),” the percussionist shared.

“Salamat sa mga pamilya at kaibigan na nagdasal para sa akin, at sa mga nagpadala ng mga mensahe. I promise to take it easy para mabilis akong gumaling nang tuluyan. Your prayers, well-wishes, and messages are very well appreciated!” she added.
