Nairobi Woman Rep Esther Passaris has been admitted at the Aga Khan Hospital for a Medial Branch Block procedure plus Paraspinal.
A medial branch nerve block is a procedure in which an anesthetic is injected near small medial nerves connected to a specific facet joint. Typically several levels of the spine are injected in one procedure.
Thank God my operation went well. I had my first pain-free night in over two months. Thank you all for having my back, for your prayers and for wishing me well. I start physio today with gratitude in my heart for the blessing of seeing another day.

She has been battling backaches for almost 20 years which started after her pregnancy.
She said the pain has been a matter of recurrence, which comes on and off.
Passaris went through thyroidectomy surgery to remove her goiter in February at Nairobi hospital which had been growing for 10 years.
The city Woman Rep is under the care of Dr. Thikra Shariff and Livingstone Olunya.
“ I can’t sleep. I look so exhausted. I don’t sleep at night. I just keep turning on the bed even with the painkillers. The horizontal position is terribly painful,” Passaris said.
Passaris said the tests she has gone through has cost her a lot!
We wish her a quick recovery.
