The former radio presenter and the Trend host has been in and out of hospital after being diagnosed with Thoracic Endometriosis, an abnormal growth of endometrial cells outside the uterus.
After unsuccessful operations, Ms Koikai finally found a doctor who can excise the endometriosis from her lungs.
She shared the information on her Facebook page where she thanked her fans and family members who have continuously offered support during the entire process.
She also took the time to ask for financial support in order to raise money for the remaining surgeries.
‘GREETINGS FAM. THE TUBE HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM MY RIGHT LUNG. I CAN’T BEGIN TO TELL YOU HOW GRATEFUL I AM TO GOD, MY FAMILY AND TO ALL OF YOU. SO WE FINALLY FOUND A DOCTOR IN THE STATES THAT CAN REMOVE THE ENDOMETRIOSIS IN MY LUNGS WHICH IS REFERRED TO AS THORACIC ENDOMETRIOSIS. I CAN’T HAVE ANOTHER CHEST TUBE INSERTED BECAUSE WE HAVE NOT BEEN TREATING THE ROOT CAUSE BECAUSE WE DON’T HAVE GYNAECOLOGISTS TRAINED TO EXCISE ENDOMETRIOSIS IN KENYA. I DON’T HAVE MEDICAL INSURANCE AS YOU’RE ALL AWARE AND MY FAMILY HAVE BEEN MEETING MY HOSPITAL BILLS BY THE GRACE OF GOD. I’M GOING HOME TO CHILL BUT ALSO EMBARK ON THIS JOURNEY TO TOTAL HEALING THAT WILL SEE ALL THE ENDOMETRIOSIS REMOVED IN MY BODY. IT’S THAT TIME AGAIN I WILL NEED YOUR HELP AS I FUNDRAISE. THE REMAINING SURGERIES ARE QUITE EXPENSIVE AND DELICATE. ONCE WE HAVE EVERYTHING READY AND THE PAYBILL SET UP I WILL NEED YOUR HELP.
I’M HAPPY I’VE GOT SOME RELIEF. THANKS FOR YOUR PRAYERS AND SUPPORT.”
