Kemi Adetiba Speaks On Her Near Death Fibroid Experience

Nigerian music video director, and filmmaker Kemi Adetiba
has opened up on her best kept secret. She battled fibroid for long. According
to Kemi she wasn’t strong enough to talk about it, but now that she is healed
she feels she owes it to women on how she got over it. Kemi only spoke
about her ‘illness’ for the first time in a recent interview and a lot of
ladies have been asking her questions on how she got over it. Kemi hasn’t
really explained how she did, but she spoke a little about the journey below.

I battled with an extreme case of Fibroids in secret for
many years. When I say extreme, I mean EXTREME. From being rushed to the ER
where the intense PAIN wouldn’t even allow me cry, to being dangerously close
to death because of anaemia, to the physical changes, the mental and emotional
roller coaster it takes not only YOU, but your loved ones privy to the
I alluded to my battle in a recent interview while speaking
on something else, and since then I have had an avalanche of msgs from every
avenue possible. Women going through the same thing needing more information.
How I handled it. It’s amazing how many women live with this everyday yet have
NO information on how to get better, or manage the symptoms pending surgery.
Even with all the resources available to me, it was difficult making the right
I had one doctor in NY tell me that I would have to take out
my ENTIRE womb, that my case was THAT bad. Smh. I was like Errrrmmm I haven’t
had kids yet. I got a nonchalant “sorry” and a Kanye-shrug. Things I
endured Ehn??? SMH Thank God I found a doctor who thought that was rubbish…
And he was Nigerian… In Nigeria!! It’s definitely something I would love to
speak about, hoping that it helps someone out there. I won’t talk about
anything other than MY experience. It’s been 6 months since I had the surgery. Even
post surgery is another whahala, but I’m fully healed now and it’s like I have
a new lease on life!! As you can probably tell from my instagram 😂 I kept quiet about it initially as it was a very
personal experience that forced me into an extremely fragile mental and
emotional space.
I wasn’t ready for it to be public. Now that I am healed (by
God’s Grace ) I would love to share my story hoping that it would help someone.
Maybe a blog, or a video, or Twitter session… Not sure yet, but I will do it
for you guys. Thanks for all the messages and questions. Keep them coming. I’ll
try to answer all I can, and know you are not alone.
