The singer and TV star has been in agony for years with chronic pain.
Kerry has had a number of health issues. In 2017 she needed an injection for her "trigger finger".
The painful condition affects the hand’s tendons and makes it difficult to bend, with symptoms including pain at the base of fingers of thumbs, stiffness and clicking.
The mum-of-five was so fearful for her condition in December that she raced into A&E.
The star told the latest edition of New magazine: "I'm really swollen and it hasn't got any better. I ended up going to A&E as I was so worried about it.
"They've told me that they need to investigate further.
"So for now, my doctor at Pall Mall Cosmetics has given me some water tablets which will hopefully help with the swelling."
She added: "My body has been swollen since I had surgery last year. My whole body is sore and puffy – my legs, my stomach, my face, my neck. I feel like I need popping."
Kerry – whose book Whole Again was recently released – has had many procedures over the years including several boob jobs and reductions, liposuction as well as a tummy tuck.
In a recent episode of the Net Mums podcast she reflected on why she's gone under the knife so many times.
The singer said: "I started out as a page 3 model, I had a great set of t**s on me. I wasn’t going to be a rocket scientist – that was my get out, I was a pretty girl, I used what god gave me.
