“I have been fighting fibroids for about six years to seven years. I was diagnosed seven years ago and it has been one hell of a ride. “I finally decided to do something about the situation this year because it was getting to a point where it was beginning to affect me.
”She said that she was always wearing undergarments and waist cinchers to keep bloated stomach from being noticed by the public. “I was in a lot of pain, I couldn’t sit up properly. It was beginning to push against certain organs in my body and it was a total disaster”.
She also said that she went through every church service, fasted and prayed to God for a miracle to happen before heading for the surgery. “I had the surgery, it was successful and I’m alive.” Toke Makinwa is the author of “On becoming “, an autobiography.
