Ciru Muriuki has been able to scale the professional ladder in journalism, working at the prestigious broadcaster, BBC. However, one thing that the veteran journo hasn’t been able to surmount for now is the tiresome disease, endometriosis.
Yesterday, Ciru revealed on her Instagram page that she was due to have a 3rd surgery to deal with the disease. She wrote:
Hae So much. So I’m back in hospital for my THIRD surgery. This journey with endometriosis has not been easy.
But despite the surgery and the unknowns that it portends, Miss Muriuki is still positive about her life.
On the bright side my skin is popping. We thank God. 😁
Wow! What an excellent outlook!
Most of her fans and followers came out in support for her message with fellow endo-warrior Njambi Koikai wishing her the best. “Wishing you a quick recovery. God is in control and remember you shall overcome this monster ma. Much love Ciru. 😊❤️🙏” Njambi wrote.
Ciru has been vocal about her battle with the disease opening up about it in 2017. After her surgery, the former NTV journalist revealed she have been suffering in silence.
In 2018, she underwent another surgery which she hoped would deal with her chronic pain.
Endometriosis is the abnormal growth of cells (endometrial cells) similar to those that form the inside of the uterus, but in a location outside of the uterus.
It can cause pain — sometimes severe — especially during one’s period. Fertility problems also may develop.
