I am an endometriosis survivor – Corazon Kwamboka opens up

Kenyan socialite Corazon Kwamboka has for the first time opened up on a medical condition she has been battling, for a long time.

In a long post on her Instagram page, Corazon revealed that she is an endometriosis survivor, after her last screening which she did on Sunday.

She further disclosed that when she first went to see her doctor she was depressed and had lost hope because it came at a time when she had just broken up with her boyfriend.

Ms Kwamboka thanked her Doctor for encouraging her through the process that saw her undergo surgery. She also thanked her mother for being there for her through the process.

Here is her post;

I want to take this time to thank my gynecologist DR. Ongech. Why? As of today I am an endometriosis survivor, yes, no more ovarian cysts thanks to this great doctor. I battled hard to write this because I felt like I’m stripping myself and telling my health issues to the whole world, I’m a believer of privacy, but I know this may help one little girl in one little village reading this. When I walked into his office, I had no hope, depressed (from a bad breakup) and realizing that I had 2 large cysts (7cm and 3cm) on both my ovaries. He gave me hope and assured me everything would be okay, he took my matter to heart and conducted my surgery with upmost know-how and today, my scan results are back, I’m happy to say I’m a survivor. 

Thank you Doctor. Most thankful to God and my mum too, she was there with me the whole period, feeling my pain and holding my hand. I will never be able to repay you mum, but I’ll try.

To any girl with very painful periods, please go check it out. Your menses are not supposed to be that painful,” read Corazon Kwamboka’s post.
