One Year After Surgery— Toyin Lawani Shares Recovery Journey

Renowned fashion designer, and Reality TV star, Toyin Lawani has shared her journey of healing and recovery after a major surgery.

Gatekeepers News reports that the fashion designer who is suffering from a degenerative spine and brain cyst revealed she has undergone six surgeries and is currently in therapy through a post on Instagram.

Toyin had been having difficulties with breathing and speaking after an emergency tracheotomy surgery, which left her vocal cords damaged.

She, however, still experiences some paralysis, pain, and breathing difficulties, but has made significant progress and is set to begin speech therapy soon.

Recall that the fashion designer who opened up about her health issues during the reality show, Real Housewives Of Lagos Season was unable to grace the reunion because she was still recovering.

The CEO of Tiannahs Place Empire, through her page, expressed heartfelt gratitude to her medical team, family, and friends for their support throughout the ordeal.

She also thanked God for her newfound strength and ability to speak again, acknowledging that her journey is far from perfect but thankful for the progress made so far.

Toyin posted “Yesterday was a huge step to recovery for me, The last image was before my last surgery a few months ago. I have had 6 surgeries in total now and currently in therapy. That was the lump I had growing in between my vocal cords , after my tracheotomy  tube was removed from my throat, the tracheotomy left my vocal cord ruined ,as it was an emergency surgery to save me cause I stopped breathing , and I couldn’t speak for months.”

“A big thank you to all my Amazing team of doctors who have been working on me tirelessly for months to get me back on my feet and thanks to wonderful and my amazing family for being by my side all through, all through this ordeal. Told you all I was going to take two years off cause my doctors told me it will actually take two years to get me back to speaking and breathing properly again, Cause most times I stop breathing in my sleep
And my meds keep making me blow up.”

“I still wake up paralysed atimes, Still have a bad leg and still have pains from the implants in my neck, But in all I thank God, But it’s a year today and it can only my be the glory of the lord that I can hear myself speak and make sounds , and not struggle so much while I speak , while the chest pain is less ,
“It’s not perfect but I’m grateful, My thanksGiving and big come back is coming. 
Help me thank God for this new phase, I’m on bended knees in his glory”

She added, “Thank God we don’t look like what we are going through. Starting my speech therapy next week, wish me luck, And a big thank you to my Amazing clients, Fans, Godbless you all.”
