Lani Misalucha to have operation for ovarian cyst
In a taped interview with StarTalk aired yesterday, January 5, Asia's Nightingale said that she will be having an operation on the second week of February to have her ovarian cyst removed. Her cyst initially measured 2.5 cm. but has now enlarged to 7.1 cm.
According to Wikipedia, an ovarian cyst is any collection of fluid, surrounded by a very thin wall, within an ovary. Any ovarian follicle that is larger than about two centimeters is termed an ovarian cyst. An ovarian cyst can be as small as a pea, or as large as a grapefruit. Ovarian cysts cause bleeding and pain, which is why surgery may be required.
"Yung sa akin ay masyado nang malaki. And it was affecting my kidney already. At nakadikit siya kumbaga, nagkikiskis na sila ng uterus ko. They really have to open me up," she said.
She admits that it was her fault that she neglected her health.
"Kasalanan ko ‘to sa part ko. Kasi last January, nagkaroon ako ng attack na matinding-matinding pain. Yun yung time na sabi ko nga kailangan ko magpa-check-up. When we found out na meron nga akong cyst.
"Ngayon, ayoko lang maisip siya kasi definitely it will affect me. Ang lakas ng mind... very powerful ang mind mo, you know. So, ayaw mo pang... we'll never know kasi baka the more na iniisip mo, the more na naapektuhan yung loob. Everything follows, you know," she said, hopeful that her health will improve." - Philippine Entertainment Portal
