Ladies hii kitu inaitwa epidural is the devil's agent. The epidural was causing me some serious migraines that some of the strongest painkillers wouldn't stop. Thankfully it was removed yesterday. My pelvic area which is all covered in bandages is not in pain at all. The only pain I'm experiencing is from my lung and diapghragm which had been exposed to loads of scar tissue. We later learnt that no one should ever go beyond 2 lung surgeries, this is after I've had 12. If there's 3rd one, the cardiothoracic surgeon should open it up to ascertain the root cause of the problem. I basically underwent a total reconstruction of my right lung. All i wish for is our country Kenya to have an efficient, passionate and driven healthcare system like this. PLEASE learn about endometriosis. If you have any questions, feel free to DM me and I'll do my best to answer. God bless you all and have a great afternoon.”
