Veteran Nigerian actress, Shan George has revealed that she fell seriously ill in January, following issues in her brain and spine. She said she needed to have a surgery in both her brain and her spine that could very well leave her paralyzed for the rest of her life. She opened up about the process on her Instagram page earlier today, sharing pictures from the hospital.
She also used the moment to thank God, her friends and family who had supported her through that very difficult and scary period of her life. She started by telling the story of how she had been in and out of the hospital since January. She also talked about how expensive the surgery was and how she had actually undergone the operation here in Nigeria.
“I’ve been battling a spine disease for so many months now, in and out of hospital since January 2019, finally I was told d only solution is a spine surgery, a very delicate surgery that can render me permanently paralysed for d rest of my life if not properly done, I was so scared, the bill for such surgery runs into millions of naira. Long story short, I finally did the surgery in a clinic in abuja called Brain and Spine Surgery Consotium, successfully”, She said.
Shan George also talked about how it was possible to do extensive and successful surgeries here in the country. She said, “I want to say a very big thank u to friends and family who went out of their way to support with d huge surgery bill, I will never forget u for supporting instead of looking for lame heartless reasons and excuses not to help. God bless u all immensely.
Who says Brain, Spine and other delicate Surgeries can’t be done in Nigeria? I’m recuperating fine. Help me thank God. I survived!!”.
