Nollywood actor, Ini Dima-Okojie, has revealed that in 2017, she was diagnosed with fibroid and had battled with the situation since then.

According to her Instagram chats with her fans, she revealed that she is still recovering from surgery.

She wrote: “My journey with fibroid. 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.”

She disclosed that she was worried when the doctors informed her that she had fibroid. 

“I found out I had fibroids in 2017, I remember freaking out so much. The first gynecologists' 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.

“Anyways, fast forward to March 2020, the bulge on my lower belly had gotten bigger and my new gynecologists' advised I take out the fibroids.”

Furthermore, the actor stated that when she wanted to have the surgery, Covid-19 pandemic had become an issue so the operation was delayed.

She said: “Then Covid happened and we had to put the surgery on hold. In the meantime, I tried other things like herbs, clean diet, exercise.

Fast-forward to November, the bulge in my tummy had now increased significantly so I decided to go do another pelvic scan and was told I had to get an MRI because the fibroids were now bigger than what the ultrasound machine could adequately measure. 

So, bottomline, 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!”
