I died for 10 minutes, my lungs collapsed – Toyin Lawani shares a terrible experience
Toyin Lawani, a famous fashion stylist and reality TV star, has revealed that she was dead for ten minutes after her lungs collapsed during surgery.
The Real Housewives of Lagos star revealed this in an Instagram post on Friday, December 15, along with the fact that she was suffering from a brain-related illness that required surgery.
Toyin stated that she suffered from a “degenerative spine and a cyst in my brain” and had to undergo multiple surgeries.
The mother of three posted a video detailing her medical journey leading up to the surgery, as well as the pain she experienced before and after the procedure.
Toyin Lawani, who recently celebrated her wedding anniversary, wrote:
“I legit died for a whole 10 minutes. While pregnant with (sic) my daughter @kingtinukeleota, I started having severe neck/back/leg pain. And it came at a time when I became paralyzed on the left side of my body and couldn't move at all. I was given painkilling injections all the time. Even while shooting, it was hell to do those diary sessions. I was later diagnosed with a degenerative spine and a cyst in my brain.”
The 41-year-old, also known as Tiannah, added:
“Guys, I died ten minutes before they could bring me back. My lungs collapsed. I developed edema and from having artificial implants placed in my spine to walk properly again, I developed complications that required me to remain on a tracheostomy tube for three months.
“I have had three operations so far and two more to go, so that I can breathe properly and speak properly again. So when you hear me talk and joke about it, know that I am a survivor and I have been through a lot, however I forgive your negative speeches but it is just a reflection of what you are being sold. To the extent that they will tweet Tiannah lies about everything from pregnancy to neck pain. It's not your fault. I blame the sissies of that toxic show. Pray for Grace that you can be as strong as I am in the face of death.
Toyin said the disease has affected her family and business and she is still fighting for her life, but she decided to tell her story and stand firm.
