Media Personality and author, Toke Makinwa, in a recent vlog entitled “Getting back on your feet after Surgery”, shared details of her very first surgery which she had in April to take out fibroid which she had been battling with for almost seven years.
She talked about the journey and drew from her experience to encourage others who might be going through such.
I’ve been battling with fibroid for about six going to seven years. I think I was diagnosed seven years ago. It’s been one hell of a ride, guys.
So, I finally decided to do something about the situation this year because it was getting to the point where it was beginning to affect me. You know, I was in a lot of pain, I couldn’t sit up properly. It was beginning to push against certain organs inside of me. It was just nasty and a total disaster.
I had to wear undergarments, body magic, or waist cinchers just to make sure I don’t look bloated or pregnant because I didn’t want to have surgery” she said
In her latest vlog, the OAP spoke about her struggle with the ailment, the struggles to get better, which included going to church and fasting and getting back on her feet afterward.
