Ever happy Njombi Koikai who features on the trend show and presenter at Nation FM has been silently fighting with a medical condition that has taken her talent hostage.

She suffers from two medical conditions which she has already underwent a surgery.

Pneumothorax

An abnormal collection of air in the pleural space between the lung and the chest wall. Symptoms typically include sudden onset of sharp, one-sided chest pain and shortness of breath whereas

 Endometriosis

A condition that affects a woman’s reproductive organs. It happens when the tissue that lines the uterus grows outside of it.

Symptoms include; cramping during intercourse, infertility, pain (usually pelvic) that usually occurs just before menstruation and lessens after menstruation, pain with pelvic examinations, cramping or pain during bowel movements or urination and painful sexual intercourse.

Even though she is recovering on well, she had a message for her fans, especially the female fans

“Yoh fam so right after sharing about my recovery process, I was taken critical back to hospital on Monday. All the water in my lungs hadn’t completely drained. Oxygen mask fitted because my saturation was low. Theatre in the night. Chest tube fitted and back to the start. Constipation due to the meds I’ve been taking. All these because of periods. Just periods. I’m not alone.

Millions of women are suffering because of MENSTRUATION. Getting babies is not the solution because we know of mothers still suffering. I’d like to encourage mothers to young girls to start taking them to gynecologists as soon as they get their first period. It is important for women to take charge of their reproductive health.

She lamented upon poor government policies on health sector

I also don’t see any Presidential candidates addressing our health sector or women’s health. Imagine 170 million women are suffering worldwide. Our gynecologists here have no better prescription other than getting a child and the condition will go.
