Nollywood actress Ini Dima-Okojie, who has long been away from social media, returned to her social media page and explained the reason for her absence.
The experienced actress revealed that she was struggling with fibroid and had to undergo an urgent medical procedure in the hospital.
In a post shared on her IG page, the beloved actress revealed that she first discovered she had fibroid in 2017. However, she said a gynecologist she saw at the time advised her to leave it alone if it was not posing any challenge.
‘I found out I had fibroids in 2017, and I remember freaking out so much. The first gynecologist I saw said if it was not really bordering on me, he would advise that I would leave it alone, but that I should go better and get married quickly. However, Ini said in March 2020, the fibroid started sticking out and a new gynecologist recommended surgery to rectify the situation. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic at the time made it impossible to continue with the operation. In November, the actress had to undergo surgery as the lump in her stomach became even bigger.
‘Now fast forward to November, the bulge in my abdomen has now increased significantly, so I decided to do a pelvic examination again and said I should get an MRI because the fibroids were now larger than the ultrasound machine adequately could measure. I had to undergo the operation as soon as possible. ”
The actress further announced that her surgery was successful. She also thanked God that He healed her. Ini accompanies her message with a video showing her time in the hospital.
