YouTube star Simone Giertz is back, returning to the video-sharing site for the first time since having surgery to remove a brain tumor.
Giertz, 27, is a Swedish inventor known for creating crazy machines that don't always work the way they're supposed to. She hadn't posted a video on her page, which has more than 1 million subscribers, since last month before she went under the knife.
She's still recovering, but on Tuesday, she showed off her scar to fans in a new video.
"It's a pretty significant upgrade considering my second coolest scar was from removing a birthmark on my butt," she said in the latest video posted to her YouTube channel.
Aside from the scar, Giertz said she also has a new outlook on life.
"People should be faced with losing everything a little bit more often because it really helps put a lot of things into perspective," she said.
"It's so good to be back," she added. "Thanks for like going through this super weird experience with me. Having all of you in such a real and concrete way made it a lot more bearable."
