“I was emotionally drained”, Bovi’s wife talks about her experience with an ectopic pregnancy.
Kris Ugboma, the wife of famed Nigerian comedian Bovi, described how an ectopic pregnancy damaged one of her fallopian tubes, forcing her to undergo surgery.
Bovi’s wife revealed that she began experiencing chronic stomach discomfort on January 14, 2022, in an extended Instagram post in which she shared videos and photographs of herself in the hospital.
Following examinations, it was determined that an ectopic pregnancy had perforated her womb, necessitating emergency surgery.
“I’m sorry you have an ectopic pregnancy and it’s ruptured in one of your tubes. You are bleeding in your tummy. You have to go into surgery immediately,” she quoted the doctor as saying.
She said: “In a matter of minutes, they were prepping me for surgery; COVID-19 test, setting up a line, and just movements in and out of the room.
“I couldn’t process what was going on. I needed strength at that point, I couldn’t even pray. I couldn’t call anyone because the last thing I wanted was to panic.
“I was physically, emotionally, and mentally drained. Nwando and her mum had rushed down to the hospital the minute I told her. Bovi was in panic and I just hoped in God.
“Before I was wheeled into the theatre, all I could say was, ‘I am going to come out alive and stronger.’
“I testify today of God’s faithfulness to me. I am grateful to be alive. I am grateful to be well, and most of all, I am very grateful to have good people, a strong support system around me.
“This new year, I am alive and well and I’d be back home to my family and this party called life; soon.”
