“Tuesday I was throwing up all day, with severe pain in my back and stomach. Had to come to ER at 3am because pain kept getting worse, and I couldn’t stop throwing up. Just got my CT scan back. I have a few kidney stones,” she wrote on her feed while it appeared she was in a hospital bed.
She gave another update later Thursday, saying nothing much has changed and she was just trying to manage the pain the best she could.
Maroney was among those who accused serial sexual abuser Larry Nassar of improper conduct. Earlier this month, she hit out at USA Gymnastics and the U.S. Olympic Committee for taking “zero responsibility” in the Nassar scandal.

“I was minor and molested twice a day under their care, in Texas, Tokyo, London, and Belgium while winning THEM Gold medals! I’M SO TIRED OF TALK. Give these women justice,” she wrote.
“I really shouldn’t have to keep bringing up this dark part of my life, & making it so public, just to help push these organizations to bring justice to the hundreds of women they let down. I want to heal from this, but change can’t happen without accountability.”
Nassar was convicted of sexually abusing minors.
