After a fan of reached her inquiring to know how to deal with fibroid, Kemi Adetiba opened up about her successful battle with fibroid.

You can read her story below;

"I battled with an extreme case of Fibroids in secret for many years. When I say extreme, I mean EXTREME. From being rushed to the ER where the intense PAIN wouldn't even allow me cry, to being dangerously close to death because of anaemia, to the physical changes, the mental and emotional roller coaster it takes not only YOU, but your loved ones privy to the information. I alluded to my battle in a recent interview while speaking on something else, and since then I have had an avalanche of msgs from every avenue possible. Women going through the same thing needing more information, how I handled it.

It's amazing how many women live with this everyday yet have NO information on how to get better, or manage the symptoms pending surgery. Even with all the resources available to me, it was difficult making the right choices. I had one doctor in NY tell me that I would have to take out my ENTIRE womb, that my case was THAT bad. Smh. I was like Errrrmmm I haven't had kids yet. I got a nonchalant "sorry" and a Kanye-shrug. Things I endured Ehn??? SMH Thank God I found a doctor who thought that was rubbish... And he was Nigerian... In Nigeria!! It's definitely something I would love to speak about, hoping that it helps someone out there. I won't talk about anything other than MY experience.

It's been 6 months since I had the surgery. Even post surgery is another whahala, but I'm fully healed now and it's like I have a new lease on life!! As you can probably tell from my instagram    I kept quiet about it initially as it was a very personal experience that forced me into an extremely fragile mental and emotional space. I wasn't ready for it to be public. Now that I am healed (by God's Grace ) I would love to share my story hoping that it would help someone. Maybe a blog, or a video, or Twitter session... Not sure yet, but I will do it for you guys. Thanks for all the messages and questions. Keep them coming. I'll try to answer all I can, and know you are not alone."
