‘I had 8 teeth removed due to endometriosis’ Njambi Koikai narrates horrifying experience

Njambi Koikai will one day be remembered the way Wangari Maathai is today. Although that might sound like an exaggeration, I believe that the health issues she has had and her subsequent fight (including spreading the message of the deadly disease) are a testament to her moxie.

Many Kenyans who follow celebrity news have heard about Njambi and her struggle with endometriosis. The former The Trend presenter and reggae aficionado has been at the forefront spreading the message to many who might have never experienced the disease firsthand.

To say that disease has robbed Njambi would be a colossal understatement as her revelations about what she has lost she was diagnosed with the disease are heart-breaking.

The “EndoWarrior” as she calls herlself has lost jobs, lost boyfriends and money because of the cruel disease that makes one’s periods into a war.

Njambi added to that sad list recently after she shared a message on her Instagram page where she explained that she had having periods meant that she would lose a lot of blood for every attempt she made to brush her teeth after a meal.

This issue caused her to have to wear braces for a good 5 years. Only for the issue to haunt her once again while in the US and after consultation, it emerged that she had high levels of estrogen in her gums.

And the bad news didn’t stop there as she ended up with 8 cavities of which she sought to have filled by her dentists but with the current COVID-19 situation, Njambi´s appointments have become a toll order.

Her long post which is below was accompanied by an image that showed her swollen gums;

This pic was taken in 2018 during my treatment in the US.
Endometriosis is a full body disease and should be treated with a multi-disciplinary approach.
Ever since I started menstruating, I’ve had countless problems with my teeth and gums. My teeth and gums would bleed heavily everytime I brushed them during my period. In my teenage years, I had part of my gum cut out and 4 teeth removed. I later wore braces for 5 years. During my treatment in the US @centerforendocare, my teeth and gums were at it again.
I saw an orthodontist surgeon who told me I had very high levels of oestrogen in my gums. They removed 4 other teeth and cut my gum again. He also found out that the oestrogen was damaging my teeth. I have 8 cavities due to this. So in the coming weeks I will be going to visit my dentists to fill these cavities and other recommended procedures. (This Covid19 season is not the easiest though with appointments and all). I’m doing well, this is part of some medical procedures I’m undergoing through my recovery.

Look out for these signs and seek medical attention. Do not ignore.

I was a rogue teenager and had been expelled from several schools-Njambi Koikai narrates

Njambi Koikai is one woman I can say I admire greatly. One reason for that is that despite her many years of struggle with endometriosis her smile and hope have not dwindled.

This is my comeback year – Njambi Koikai says despite covid-19 pandemic

Her tough fight with the disease hasn’t made her a shrinking violet but a heroine for many women out there struggling with the same condition.

Her grit and tenacity in fighting the disease can also be attributed to one of the mentors she had early on in her school life. Writing in a recent message on her Instagram page, Njambi spoke about her late principal, the late Mrs. Meynink who would guide and mold her helping her deal with the identity crisis and conflict she was dealing with in her life.

Let me share this story, now that I’m older, wiser and more experienced in life.This was my high school and A-levels principal, the late Mrs. Meynink. We’d call her Meyno. I was a rogue teenager, a joker most times. Not sure of what I wanted to be and who I was. My realities and ideologies created so much conflict in trying to be someone I was not. I struggled with deep identity crisis. I came from the hood. My realities were different from my classmates. At the time, of joining this school, I’d already been expelled from a few previous high schools. 

Njambi Koikai throwback
Njambi Koikai with her high school principal

So every evening after class, Mrs. Meynink would call me for a meeting to evaluate my day and take me through my thought process. Over and above teaching Maths and Physics, she was also a counsellor. Half the time, I’d sit there hearing her British accent fly past me. Never putting any of her words into consideration but for some reason, I took her seriously. This was the only high school I never got an expulsion. 

At the time, she had been expelled from a few previous schools and was still trying to get to terms with the frequent fainting in school, as she didn’t know that she was suffering from endometriosis.

I was also very sick and didn’t know about Endometriosis. In many instances during school assembly, I would faint – some people would think I was pretending. O-level exams came and I failed at some subjects. Everyone else passed and left school. I was back in November for resits. I was alone. My mom and grandma always told me, ulizaliwa pekee yako na utasoma pekee yako, hii masomo hutusomei…Lol!.

Njambi Koikai

Njambi also disclosed that the period was a tough one for her as she failed at her A-level exams and had to resit the papers. But thank God for Mrs. Meynink who never gave up on her and was there to guide her in changing her mindset and thinking as an adult would.

For the first time in my life, reality hit home. I was alone. A few times, Mrs. Meynink invited me to her place. She wanted me make up my mind and instigate my senses to realise that no matter where I came from, I could chart a different path for my life. After the exam resits, I aced them. I later joined AS-level and made the grades to campus. I did. –

God was truly with me. Mrs. Meynink passed away a few years back but I’m grateful for those years, her time, wisdom and concern for me. May she rest in eternal peace.

This is my comeback year – Njambi Koikai says despite covid-19 pandemic

While Covid-19 has wrecked havoc on the world and made 2020 seem like it will be a terrible year, there are still some who believe that it will still turn good for them.

Seasoned Mc, Njambi Koikai recently took to Instagram to reveal how the pandemic has disrupted her ‘comeback’ year after battling with thoracic endometriosis for five years.

“This is my comeback year. Got back on stage after 5 years due to Thoracic Endometriosis. I had so many gigs lined up. So many. Then Covid-19 happened. Very interesting because this takes me back to my moments in the hospital. So many divine things happened. It was all God’s plan and timing. I sit back and let God work out His ways. I’m never one to rush things. I let God do His will” she wrote on social media.

Njambi Koikai

Fayah Mamma as many know her added that she has been approached a couple of times to host online gigs but she has since turned every request down as she focuses on getting better.

“I’ve received countless requests to do some gigs online, I also thought of it, but it’s a challenge for me because of my health and logistics, therefore, I’ll wait until this is over tuonane live live,” she added.

“To all artistes and deejays who are not able to do stuff online at the moment, master your craft. You’re still great. There’s time for everything. Your time will come. It’s still my comeback year. God will restore all the years that the locusts have eaten. Remember that,” she said.

‘It’s been 21 years of pain’ Njambi Koikai says about endometriosis

The former NTV presenter earlier this month announced that she needs to protect her lungs and immune system, therefore, cancelled all her gigs until further notice.

Njambi Koikai

In February this year, Njambi revealed that her ex-boyfriend gave up on her during her battle with the condition.

“It has been four years. Photos of me in tubes went viral and many thought I wasn’t going to be back. I came to Nairobi and found my boyfriend had already moved on. He thought I wouldn’t come back and got himself a young lady,” she narrated.

Ms. Koikai was diagnosed with Endometriosis, a disease she has been battling from the age of 13. She has recently added that she is also battling adenomyosis.

Njambi Koikai
Njambi Koikai

It is a condition in which the inner lining of the uterus (the endometrium) breaks through the muscle wall of the uterus (the myometrium). Adenomyosis can cause menstrual cramps, lower abdominal pressure, and bloating before menstrual periods and can result in heavy periods.

‘It’s been 21 years of pain’ Njambi Koikai says about endometriosis

Njambi Koikai has been a reminder to Kenyans that the will to live despite all the challenges that life can throw one’s way, someone can still hope and thrive.

The former The Trend presenter has been suffering from endometriosis for a long time and even had been hospitalised in the U.S for close to a whole year as she received treatment in Atlanta.

Njambi Koikai

But what many might not know is the toll that her disease took on her education, with the lady revealing that she was expelled severally right from high school, to A-levels and even in campus.

Njambi shared her story on Instagram, revealing that her condition saw her study for much longer than she was actually expected to.

“I was expelled from 4 high schools, dropped out of A-levels, went to Daystar University, graduated in 2008, joined USIU dropped out in 2009 and went back and finally graduated in 2016. Na mi ni emcee wa reggae…… *excerpts from my book*.”

Njambi Koikai

In another of her posts, she admits that Endometriosis and Adenomyosis robbed her off, her younger years.

Endometriosis and Adenomyosis had to do with all my struggles in high school and all the expulsions and Uni. This disease robbed me off my younger years. Affected my social life and certainly my studies. It created a shell out of a once bubbly, energetic, ambitious little girl. This disease is brutal and is affecting millions of women silently.

However, she was quick to joke about how despite the several institutions she joined and courses she took, her dream of becoming an ‘ambassador´, drowned.

Njambi Koikai

Njambi isn’t one to forget who stood with her during her tough times. “Special shoutout to my girl @mimi_letion who helped me during very turbulent times at USIU while I battled Endometriosis,” she wrote.

Njambi Koikai reveals fascinating craving she has had since coming back

All in all, I have a heart of gratitude. I’m thankful to God because I will also conquer Adenomyosis. It’s been 21 years of pain. 21!!!!!!! I’m just happy to be here.. God has been so good to me.

What’s the difference between endometriosis and Adenomyosis?

Although they can occur together, endometriosis is when endometrial cells (the lining of the uterus) are in a location outside of the uterus. Adenomyosis is when these cells exist or grow into the uterine wall. Although both can cause pain, does not always cause heavy bleeding.

Njambi Koikai reveals fascinating craving she has had since coming back

Njambi Koikai has been back in the country for less than a week and has been relishing the prospect. The Endo Warrior has been battling Thoracic endometriosis for some while now and was away for treatment in the United States for a whole year.

Njambi Koikai

While Njambi was away for that long period there is something that she has missed terribly. Could you guess what that is? The food. Especially kienyeji food.

The former Trend host revealed this intersting news on her Instagram page. She wrote that she needed suggestions from her followers on the best spots for kienyeji food. ‘Fam, I’m craving lots of our Kenyan kienyeji food…Which restaurants do you suggest I should check out nikianza kupiga raundi?’ she asked.

Njambi Koikai
Njambi Koikai

Kenyans are always willing and helpful when it comes to ideas for filling one’s tummy. The odd thing though was that most of her followers suggested that she enjoys a home-cooked meal instead of going out to buy some.

‘I’ve not had a lung collapse in a year’ Endometriosis survivor Njambi Koikai

Most of the other comments were her followers telling her how happy they were she was back safe and sound. Me, I will honour the call and give Njambi a few places she can eat kienyeji food.

Njambi Koikai
Njambi Koikai

They are;

K’Osewe Ranalo Foods located on Kimathi Street-The hotel environment is cool, clean, well-groomed and cosy. Not forgetting Fish – Tilapia to be specific that is well prepared and goes down with nice cooked ugali.
Kilimanjaro Jamia, located on Kimathi Street, Kenwood House-If you want to sample local dishes this restaurant is for you. The plates are reasonably priced so you can try several local dishes if you like.
Buffet Park located on Argwings Kodek Road-This is an ideal place for Kenyan Nyama Choma. Though the place needs some refurbishment, the meat is delicious and so is the roast.

Njambi Koikai is one of the most inspirational people that the Kenyan nation has produced.

The former The Trend presenter has been through the wringer the past 2 years.

Njambi Koikai

The reason for that is the condition that she has suffered from the time she was a teenage girl-endometriosis.

The disease has caused her to go abroad for treatment. She has been away and it seems like the culmination of that time there might be coming to an end.

Njambi Koikai

#LongFightToHealing #JahmbyKoikaireturns. Hey fam been unwell. We recorded this a few weeks ago. All i can say is thank you and God bless you all abundantly. Nairobi see you soon. #JahmbyKoikaiReturns.

‘I have undergone 21 surgeries so far,’ Njambi Koikai tells Ellen Degeneres

From the video, one can see that she has gotten better and is looking much healthier than she was just a few months ago. Throughout that period she asked for support from Kenyans to help pay for her treatment.

Her video received a lot of positive feedback from her followers. Her journey mirrors that of American actress Lena Dunham. She revealed on Facebook in 2016 that she’d been diagnosed with endometriosis.

The 29-year-old has lived with the illness since she was a teenager, and has written about it before. Her post is below;

‘I’ve not had a lung collapse in a year’ Endometriosis survivor Njambi Koikai

Njambi Koikai has been through a lot the years that she has been on this earth, what with the endometriosis she has suffered during that period.

That she is a warrior is an understatement for a woman who has undergone 21 surgeries on her body so far and is still giving people hope! Njambi, who loves communicating to her followers on her Instagram page, wrote a touching message about how the last year has been better.

Njambi Koikai
Njambi in hospital in the past

The former T.V presenter who is recuperating in the US said she is slowly healing and has not suffered a lung collapse in a year. She wrote;

I’m so grateful to God.
I’ve not had a lung collapse in a year and no air leaks in my chest in 4 months. My chest, diaphragm and lungs are healing well. The recovery process has not been easy either. Endo patients who’ve gone through excision, are aware of the recovery pain C02 gas used in surgery causes.
So this gas tries to find an escape from the body and may lodge itself in the shoulders.
When I’d have lung collapses, the pain would start on my right shoulder and it would feel like my right side of the body was paralysed as my diaphragm and lungs were in stabbing motions of pain.
The shoulder pain is now gone.
My mobility was affected due to the amount of surgeries I’ve gone through and my organs started shifting to the left side of my body. Therapy has helped me back on my feet.
I’ll tell you about pelvic floor therapy that is soooo painful but very important.
Forever grateful for my mom, sister, my doctors and nurses and you my fam.

Endometriosis is a condition in which cells similar to those in the endometrium, the layer of tissue that normally covers the inside of the uterus, grow outside of it. Most often this is on the ovaries, fallopian tubes, and tissue around the uterus and ovaries; however, in rare cases it may also occur in other parts of the body.

Celebs who have said that they have suffered with the disease are; Tia Mowry-Hardrict, Whoopi Goldberg, Dolly Parton, Marilyn Monroe and Hillary Clinton.

‘I have undergone 21 surgeries so far,’ Njambi Koikai tells Ellen Degeneres

Njambi Koikai has become the poster child for endometriosis sufferers in this country and one can see why. The former The Trend presenter has been suffering from endometriosis from the time she was a teen.

Njambi Koikai
Njambi in hospital

In her journey to get better, she has been speaking and educating the public using her social media pages, especially Instagram. On that page, she regularly updates the public on what she is going through.

She has previously appealed to Mombasa governor Allan Hassan Joho using her page, who ended up donating 1 million shillings afterward. Now Njambi wants to appear on American host Ellen Degeneres show, Ellen.

The stage four endometriosis survivor sent an emotional message to Ellen in the hope she would possibly be featured in her show which is one of the most popular in recent times.

She asked her followers on her Instagram for help her get the word out. Her caption read;

Fam please help me tag @theellenshow @edglavin @sir_twitch_alot

Njambi revealed that she had actually tried to reach out to Ellen through a letter but to no avail. This video was literally a ‘Hail Mary’ as she read out the letter she wrote to the 61-year-old Ellen. The letter read;

Dear Ellen, my name is Jahmby Koikai from Nairobi Kenya, a stage four thoracic endometriosis survivor. Endometriosis is a disorder in which the tissue that normally lines the uterus grows outside the uterus. In my case the endometriosis spread all the way to my lungs, diaphragm, chest, ribs, appendix and close to my heart.

Njambi Koikai

Njambi went on to reveal that she has been battling endometriosis for two decades and has undergone 21 surgeries so far. She concluded the video with a plea to Ellen to hand her a platform.

Kenyans saw her video and took to Twitter to flood Ellen’s timeline with tags just to boost her chances to earn a slot in her how.   Earlier in 2019, she attempted to reach out to another TV talk show host Steve Harvey but her efforts have been unsuccessful.

She recently took to her social media to call out cons who were using her pictures to extort money from people.

In her post she went ahead to say

I have been tagged by many people and informed of some people using this picture of mine on Facebook to extort money from people.

Firstly, we’ve reported it on Facebook and the posts haven’t been pulled down.

It’s quite sad that as I share my painful, excruciating journey others see it as an opportunity to con others.

She’s recuperating in Atlanta and all we can wish her is a speedy recovery.

Her prayer was that no one would end up in a situation like her especially those coning people using her picture.

All she wanted was to raise awareness on what endometriosis could do to ones body – she says.

Her message continued

My prayer is that they never end up in a situation like this.

I shared this pic to show the world the extent of Endometriosis and it’s adverse effects.

Thoracic Endometriosis affects the lungs, chest, diaphragm and ribs.

This is what I’ve been suffering from. I thank God for @centerforendocare for helping me get back on my feet.

In conclusion she says,


I am currently undergoing therapies and treatment.

I hope that my journey will help women to seek help and not be ashamed of a biological function that we have long been shamed for.

Period pain is not normal and women’s pain is valid.

Menstruation should be normal and painless but it’s not so for close to 200 million women.

This is my story about this silent killer disease, Thoracic Endometriosis.

Unsung Hero! Ailing Njambi Koikai praises sister for taking care of her

Njambi Koikai is still in the hospital recuperating after undergoing a successful surgery early this month.

Njambi Koikai

 

Njambi Koikai has revealed that she has been in a lot of pain for the past few days. She had three tubes put inside her body to help drain out the fluid in her ribs and chest area.

“Hey, fam poleni I’ve been silent for a while. We have been dealing with a lot of pain. As I said earlier, there was fluid hiding in my ribs and chest area aside from the ‘usual’ fluid that normally lurks around my lungs. This meant pushing in another 2 chest tubes. I’ve been having 3 chest tubes in me. The pain is excruciating. It is debilitating and any other adjective you can think of. The size of those two tubes meant that I had to be on a walker at all times even when going to the bathroom or bed. God is GREAT those two huge tubes and boxes were replaced with some tiny bags. Endometriosis had literally created a home in my right lung-chest area,” she wrote in part.

 

Njambi Koikai

Njambi went ahead to thank her sister for taking care of her and thanked God for giving her another chance to live.


“My sister has been so amazing. She told mum to rest as she takes care of me. She’s fed me, bathed me, prayed with me, walked with me and encouraged me every step of the way, she took nice pics of me lol, she bought me a nice gown to keep me super warm and the cutest sandals because my feet are super swollen beyond an elephant’s thigh. Anyway, my sis is back to work and I love it that they even gave her time off. This pain is not easy to deal with and to see your loved ones have to bear with it can sometimes be crushing. God gave us love. The greatest commandment. If we could all live in pure love, our lives would change.

Njambi Koiakai's family

 

 


Share the love of God which is never-ending, unbroken and forever.
Thank God for every blessing. Your breathing lungs, your walking legs, your seeing eyes. Shukuru Mola kwa hayo tu.”

 In a previous post, Njambi Koikai talked about America has been great referring to herself as a miracle child.

“America has been great even though we’ve been bound to hospital walls. I flew in here with my family and God. I keep believing every single day, that I am a miracle child. A miracle child who the devil has tried time and again to snatch from God. So after that long major and excruciating surgery, there was no sleeping. Like right after recovery room, physically therapy started. Can you imagine walking immediately after surgery? Crazy right? I won’t even start on the pain. Then I have what they call a pediatric back, so fixing in an epidural was pain that I cannot again explain. I’ve never been numbed by pain. This pain numbed me. Anyway i have 3 amazing surgeons who have worked on me so far. Right after the major surgery, i was notified that more fluid was found hiding in my ribs..and I asked what that means. Doc was like we need to insert two other tubes to drain out all the fluid. Friends at this point i told God haki surely have mercy on me. This endometriosis thing cannot ravage me like this. Then God reminded me who He is. That He is King. I was wheeled into radiology yesterday and got two chest tubes added, i didn’t even realise it by the time they were done. God reminded me that this road won’t be easy. Infact it’s bound to be the hardest because relief is near. It is bound to be the hardest because healing is here. It is bound to be the hardest because the strongest women alive have fought crazy battles and won.

Njambi KOikai
My mom and sis have stood by me and I’m here to show both of them and the world that we can beat endometriosis.
I’m here to stand in strength for every other little girl in high school fainting due to this thing.
I’m here to remind that career woman whose dreams are on hold that they too can have their life back.
I’m this little girl ready to engage with my government leaders and women leaders to fund more research on this condition.”

“So this is where it all started. The preparation room for surgery.
These 3 members of my family have made it easier for me.
Thanks @home_254 for blessing us with #JahmbyArmy sweatshirts.
Sasa hapa my friends nilidungwa sindano nikakuwa kama kichungi. Haki the difference in our healthcare system wacha tu. Hiyo blanketi ya silver kumbe ilikuwa ni kunichocha tu lol it was warm and nice and made me feel like an astronaut.
Anyway nilidungwa sindano moja tu nikaona giza and that was it,” she wrote in part.

Njambi went ahead to reveal that the surgery took more than seven hours.
“My surgery started at 8am and they finished at 5pm. My right lung was completely damaged but these doctors have fixed it. I had so much hidden endometriosis hidden in my pelvic area and in the diaphragm. The constant insertion of chest tubes caused scars and the thoracic surgeon wondered how i even survived.
God is great. God has done it for me.”

So Uncalled For: Njambi Koikai Bundled Out From Citizen Radio

Nancy Nanjala Nyongesa aka Njambi Koikai has been battling a condition known as Endometriosis for the last 18 years but the last two years, the situation became worse to a point she started having intense chest pains.

Njambi Koikai

A lady by the name Cindy, whom she has never met before, reached out to her via Facebook. She asked her if she experiences problems with her lungs during a certain period. She found it strange because her lungs would only collapse during her periods. That’s when she told her she has a reproductive health issue and she should go and see Dr Patel in Agah khan. She went and was diagnosed with thoracic endometriosis.

‘At one moment you are at the top…then all this happened, media personality laments about chronic disease

Kenyans have come together to hold her hand as she goes through this trying time and as she continues to fund raise for her treatment. She also has a charity event today at the Alchemist to help her raise money so she can go for treatment abroad.
