‘My journey with fiber

Hey guys, I know this is a moment !.
I want to share something very personal with you … but I think it’s important.
This is something that apparently affects about 6-8 in every ten black women, but no one talks about it.

I found out I had fibroids in 2017, and I remember freaking out so much. The first gynecologist I saw said if it is not really bordering on me, he would advise I should leave it alone, but that I should go better and get married quickly (🙄 no jokes)

Either way, fast forward to March 2020, the bump on my lower abdomen got bigger and my new gynecologist advised taking out my fibroids. Then Covid happened, and we had to put the operation aside.
In the meantime I tried other things … herbs, clean diet, exercise …

Now fast forward to November, the bulge in my stomach 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 bigger than the ultrasound machine could adequately measure.
I had to undergo the operation as soon as possible.

I underwent the operation, it was successful and I am now healing slowly but surely.
I just want to thank Almighty God for showing up and exhibiting for me !!!!
I want to thank my family and friends, especially my mom and my aunt Biola who moved to the hospital and never left my side. I want to thank Dr Esue and all the Drs & nurses at Cedarcrest Hospital for taking such good care of me.
And lastly, I want to thank you guys who send me messages / Dms, wondering if I’m doing well and I pray anyway. 💞

To the women out there who deal with fibroids. I know what a lonely road it can be .. not to mention the pain and discomfort, and then there is the ignorant ‘happiness with your pregnancy’ comment to deal with 🙄
It’s good that they do not know better.
I want you to know that my Dms is open to you. If you want to ask questions, talk or even just want to talk. (I will respond as soon as I get stronger)

I know that 2020 was a difficult year
But we are tougher !!! We’re still here … we survived !!! That alone is a great achievement.
Let us remember to be kind to ourselves and others. I pray 2021 is better for all of us !.

Lots of love Ini ”
