Popular Yoruba actress, Omotunde Ogundimu, who has been off the movie scene for a while now, is presently battling with fibroid. The mother of three disclosed this to Dupe Ayinla Olasunkanmi in an interview, stating that she noticed the ailment in 2013.
“My period comes like 10 to 15 days; then, it will stop and come again. I menstruate twice in a month. I noticed it last year before my husband passed away. Anytime we had intercourse, I would always bleed. I took it for something else, so I didn’t really pay attention to it. But when he became sick and we couldn’t have intercourse any more, it (the bleeding) stopped. Then, I didn’t have time to study it at that period too.
“But what I noticed is that my menstrual circle changed, so I would menstruate twice in a month with very heavy flow. So, at that time, I just felt it was one of the signs of menopause because I am way above 40. But last year, I had to go to the hospital to complain and the doctor said I had fibroid, even before the tests and scan were conducted. When the scan was done, it was discovered that the fibroid was fully grown in my womb,” she explained.
The actress said she needs about N500,000 (N350,000 to undergo the surgery and N150,000 for her up keeps) as she doesn’t have that kind of money because she has been single-handedly been taking care of her three children who are in school.
The actress added that her in-laws have never bothered to call her since the demise of her husband.
