Citizen TV Swahili News Anchor Lulu Hassan opened up to her fans on social media about a horrifying accident she had been involved in back in 2010. The beauty took to her Instagram to narrate how horrified the accident had left her and how at some point she thought she would never be able to walk again.
Lulu opened up after going through a successful surgery to remove a metal plate on her foot. Even though the accident affected her work, walking style and posture, Lulu was grateful to God for making it happen.
She disclosed that she would be away from the screens for a while to allow her time to recuperate from the surgery.
Here is how her Instagram post read:
‘April 19th 2010..I remember this day like it was yesterday…I was going for an assignment in Kisumu but on reaching kapkatet it all happened so fast…i found myself at the siloam hospital in Kericho first aid was being administered.. Next thing I knew I was in the ambulance on my way to Nairobi for an emergency theatre at the Agakhan Hospital.
The next few months would be tough. If you would have asked me then if I thought I would be able to walk or be on my feet again, I wouldn’t have imagine that was possible. But; Alhamdullilah !!! It’s been 7 years walking with a plate on my left femur…On the 30th October,2017 i finally gathered the courage to walk into theatre for a surgery to remove it …i had been relying on this Aluminium plate for the last 7 years after the accident in 2010…. 7 years that saw my walking style and body posture change completely thus affecting my back and work not forgetting the excruciating pain i woud have to endure whenever i wanted to lie down…Alhamdullilah after the Monday surgery; the plate is out…i would like to donate the plate to any elderly patient who may need it and cannot afford it ..hit my inbox.
I will be in bed for some time to recuperate. I would like to thank my family , friends, my boss who constantly reminded me that i needed to do something…Dr Thuranira i dont know how to thank you but you made me have faith with our medical practitioners and introduced me to one Doctor Mogire (He is God sent)…… ..To anyone going through a tough time now… Be encouraged. It shall pass. ..’
