Chinonso Egemba, a physician and everyone’s favorite Instagram physician who goes by the handle Aproko Doctor, has admitted that he battled a brain tumor for a short period of time.
The social media influencer revealed this on his social media profile today, January 16, 2022, saying that he had a life-or-death struggle in December of the previous year.
Egemba claims that after receiving a diagnosis on December 5 he soon developed partial blindness.
In a video he posted online, Egemba described his ordeal and the procedure he had to have.
He captioned the video, “Throughout December of 2022, I was fighting for my life. I went blind in one eye on the 3rd of Dec. 2022 & on the 5th, I was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Today I stand here before you to share my story. It has been a long road to recovery but each day is better than the last.”
The doctor, who is well-known for his humorous approach to imparting health advice, disclosed that Dr. Tayo Ojo, a neurosurgeon from Nigeria, performed his brain surgery.
“It was Dr. Tayo Ojo, a neurosurgeon here in Nigeria that did the surgery. So many people begged me to leave the country and get the surgery done but something kept me back here because I still had trust in us. We need more investment in our health sector,” he wrote.
