My Journey with FIBROIDS
Hey guys, I know it’s been a minute! I want to share something quite personal with you… but I think it’s important because this is something that apparently affects about 6-8 in every 10 black women but no one talks about it.
I found out I had fibroids in 2017. I remember freaking out so much. The first gynecologist I saw said if it wasn’t really bordering me he would advise I leave it alone but that I had better go and quickly get married (no jokes).”
Anyway, fast forward to March 2020, the bulge on my lower belly had gotten bigger and my new gynecologist advised I take out the fibroids. Then COVID happened and we had to put the surgery on hold. In the meantime, I tried other things like herbs, a clean diet, and exercise.
Now, fast forward to November, the bulge in my tummy had now increased significantly so I decided to go do another pelvic scan & was told I had to get an MRI because the fibroids were now bigger than what the ultrasound machine could adequately measure. Bottom line I had to have the surgery as soon as possible
I had the surgery. It was successful and I’m now healing slowly but surely. I just want to thank God Almighty for showing up and showing out for me!!!
I want to thank my family and friends especially my mum and my Aunty Biola who moved into the hospital and never left my side. I want to thank Dr. Esue and all the Doctors and Nurses at Cedarcrest hospital for taking such good care of me.
And finally, I want to thank you guys who have been sending me messages and DMs wondering if I’m okay and praying for me anyway.
To the women out there dealing with fibroids. I know what a lonely road it can be no to talk of the pain and discomfort and then there are the ignorant congrats on your pregnancy comments to deal with.
It’s okay they don’t know any better. I want you to know that my DMs are opened to you. If you want to ask questions, talk, or even just rant. (I’ll respond once I get stronger).
I know 2020 has been a tough year but we are tougher!!! We’re still here… we survived!!! That alone is a huge defeat.
Let’s remember to be kind to ourselves and to others. I pray 2021 is better for us all!.
From what you have seen, Actress Ini Dima is trying to explain the fact that she has been diagnosed with Fibroid since 2017. But she lived with it till 2020 when she did the surgery to remove all those fibroids from her inner stomach around November to December. Before then, she wanted to do the surgery around the beginning of this year, but then COVID-19 cut up with her and she moved on doing other things like Exercise, Clean Diet, and taking herbs. She said she had the surgery and it was successful. She then used the opportunity to thank a lot of her family members (she named some of them), and also her fans on Instagram who kept on sending her DMs.
In conclusion, it’s a testimony to thank God that Ini Dima-Okojie has just shared with her fans. Right now, she’s getting healed by God’s grace. What are your thoughts and reactions to this? Please drop them in the comment section below.
