“I used to be healthier than I look now but since I was told that I had Fibroid, my body got thinner and the stomach bigger. In our community, there are many explanations for this kind of looks ranging from witchcraft to “mbiam”… everything but Fibroid. A lot of people have come to me with different local medications telling it will suck all that is making my stomach to swell and everything will get back to normal.
I’ve done these for so many years without any improvement, the stomach will just swell as if I’m about to deliver, then it reduce in size all by itself. In all of these, my health wasn’t getting better, in fact I learnt when I came to the hospital that my blood count has dropped significantly.
They had to help me boost the blood count so as to prepare me for the free surgery by @benjaminolowojebutufdn. When I woke up after the surgery, I felt a lot lighter and they showed me what was taking away my health, 48 masses! They removed 48 masses from me and they did it for free…my joy is endless! Now I can go on with a normal andhealthy life, I will forever be grateful. This smile will never go away again, amen”. Uyo, Akwa Ibom State, Nigeria. 2018.
