As fans of celebrated comedian, Julius Agwu, hope for his early return to the entertainment scene, he has given further details on the health issue that has taken him out of circulation for some time.
Agwu shocked many people earlier in the week when he revealed in YES magazine that he had undergone a surgery for brain tumour.
According to Agwu, the crisis started with a ......
progressive weight loss until he suffered a seizure in May.
After his wife, Ibiere, and maid initially rushed him to their hospital in the Lekki area of Lagos, where he was stabilised, they had subsequently taken him to the United States for further treatment.
It was at the Park Plaza Hospital, in Houston Texas, that a series of tests revealed two lumps in the versatile comedian’s brain.
YES wrote on the diagnosis, “After a series of tests, two lumps were discovered in his brain. The lumps had been messing up his health and causing his incessant weight loss. Immediately, the surgeons went to work, operating on him for about four hours on Tuesday, May 12, 2015, at the hospital. After he was discharged, Julius rested in the US for some time before returning home recently.”
Also in a telephone interview on Channels Television on Wednesday, Agwu recounted the ordeal.
He, however, gave the assurance that he was recovering well, saying, “God is healing me.”
According to experts, a brain tumor or intracranial neoplasm occurs when abnormal cells form within the brain. There are two main types of tumours: malignant or cancerous tumors and benign tumors.
Cancerous tumours can be divided into primary tumours that start within the brain, and secondary tumours that have spread from somewhere else, known as brain metastasis tumours. All types of brain tumours may produce symptoms that vary depending on the part of the brain involved. These may include headaches, seizures, problem with vision, vomiting and mental changes.
The headache is classically worse in the morning and goes away with vomiting. More specific problems may include difficulty in walking, speaking and with sensation. As the disease progresses unconsciousness may occur.
The cause of most brain tumours is said to be unknown..
“But risk factors that may occasionally be involved include a number of inherited conditions known as neuro-fibromatosis, as well as exposure to the industrial chemical vinyl chloride, the Epstein-Barr virus, and ionising radiation. While concern has been raised about mobile phone use, the evidence is not clear,” an online account added.
Get well soon Brother, Julius d' Genius Agwu! God is your healer!
