Media personality Toke Makinwa has just revealed that she has been battling fibroid for seven years and she recently had surgery to remove it.
She made this known on her vlog and said she finally decided to do something about her situation this year because it was already affecting other organs in her body. So she had surgery - her first ever.
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.
