Njambi Koikai is appealing to well-wishers to help her raise Sh3.4 million for her treatment. The media personality, who has been battling endometriosis, underwent surgery early March at a hospital in Talanta, USA and she’s recuperating.
The whole process is sh10 million and so far she Njambi Koikai has managed to raise sh6.6 million.
“This corridor has been my walk way for a few weeks. Right after my surgery, my cardiothoracic surgeon walks in and says there’s more water in the lungs. Fair enough. That meant another mini-surgery. I aced it. I went through it and came out with more tubes right under my breast going through to my ribs connected to the two boxes you see on the walker. The box on the side was connected to my stomach. All draining water and blood. I also had a catheter in. Then a week later, doc said they found water in another part of my rib cage. So they gave me options. Either we insert the tube through your armpit or through your back or through your breast. I couldn’t bear a tube in my back since i lie on my back. I opted to have the tube through my right breast. I aced it. It started draining,” she wrote in part.
Njambi Koikai, says she’s recovering well and hopes to help other women suffering from endometriosis in future.
“I just want to encourage little girls in high school, young adult women, career women who’ve had to endure this pain, miss school and always shamed. I’m here for you. God has given me life. They will hear our pain. They will know that Endo is real and we need a cure.
All the tubes were removed. I’m recovering well just dealing with the motions of healing.
We have a fundraiser and thanksgiving event on the 5th of May at Believers Celebration Centre in Marietta, Atlanta. I will be there to share my story.

“@JAHMBYKOIKAI YOU’RE A ROCK STAR FOR BRINGING AWARENESS TO ENDOMETRIOSIS. SO MANY OF US ARE SUFFERING IN SILENCE, FACED WITH PHYSICIANS WHO DON’T REALLY CARE. I REMEMBER ONE WHO INSINUATED THAT MY PELVIC PAIN WAS CAUSED BY AN STD. SURELY.
ANYWAYS, I HAD A LAPAROSCOPIC PROCEDURE YESTERDAY TO REMOVE A LARGE HAEMORRHAGIC OVARIAN CYST. I’M A LITTLE SORE, BUT ON THE MEND. WE NEED A CURE. WE DO,” she shared with her followers after the surgery.
