Endometriosis is when the tissue that makes up the uterine lining (the lining of the womb) is present on other organs inside your body and is usually found in the lower abdomen, or pelvis, but can appear anywhere.
Former Nation Media Group Journalist, Njambi Koikai has been suffering from this ailment from childhood and since last year March, she has been getting treatment abroad.
Taking to her social media pages, the jovial TV personality and an entertainment journalist shared the struggles that those who have endometriosis go through.
As endo warriors, we are faced with countless struggles. she wrote
Njambi revealed that the most struggle comes in misdiagnosis and with it, it comes with botched surgeries and so many complications.
The biggest challenge remains misdiagnosis and with this comes botched surgeries, wrong medication etc. This makes the disease worse that by the time you’re seeing a skilled endometriosis specialist, they first have to deal with all the damage caused due to misdiagnosis and then deal with the disease.
It’s horrific the damage most of us have gone through.Njambi added.
Her plea is that there should be training on the specialists who are dealing with the disease so that it makes it easier for the skilled specialists when carrying out excision.
So the best solution is to first get trained specialists to deal with this disease. Then early proper diagnosis. The skilled specialists will then be able to carry out excision which will in turn save so many lives and end the agony. She wrote.
Njambi is requesting for funds since her hospital bills have gone up.
I kindly need your help to fundraise as i have accrued more hospital bills. God bless you abundantly and have a fantastic weekend.
From us is to wish her a quick recovery.
