How I almost lost my life after brain surgery – Abimbola Craig

Nigerian actress and film producer, Abimbola Craig, has narrated how she nearly lost her life in 2014 after she did a brain surgery.

According to the actress in a recent video she posted, she battled nausea, insomnia, and weight loss after the surgery.

Her doctors, according to her, started suspecting meningitis after multiples tests they conducted could not reveal the cause of her sickness.

She was thankful for regaining her health back.

“Four days after the surgery I started feeling weird but I could not explain what it was that was wrong with me. I could not eat. I could not sleep and I also started losing my appetite and started losing weight.

“I remember my last ER visit. I was still throwing up so much that Mum tried to reach my doctor but could not. At this time I was doing a lumbar puncture, I had four that day. Lumbar punctures are like spinal taps. So they tell you to bend and take fluids from the spine and the reason why they did this is because they still did not know what was wrong with me so they thought I had meningitis.

“10 years after my surgery, I am alive. I am healthy and doing things I never thought I’d be able to do again. I thought I was going to die, not even from the brain surgery. It was during the period of the lumbar puncture, not sure if I had meningitis and all. I literally thought I was going to die,” she said.
