Julius Agwu opens up on his brain tumour surgery and memory loss



Julius Agwu has made his first appearance on TV following his surgery and hes spoke extensively on it. See excerpts from his interview with channels tv below:

all the hurdles and challenges of life, so many of us don’t really know
what is going on inside. Nobody carries signboard of ill-health. So, I
never realized what was happening, I just noticed that at some point, I
was losing weight. Initially, I was working out trying to look shapely,
because as soon as you clock 40 you begin to take some of those things
seriously. I just noticed the over-work, stress and everything.
Nigeria, we really don’t rest, we hustle and hustle, we just keep
working but oyinbo (white men) will work for vacation and settle, you
know, rest. But our own, we hustle and even when we die, we’re still
working as ancestors through consultations
just realised that once in a while, I would have headache, take the
normal pain relievers and it will go down until I had a seizure and was
rushed to the hospital. That was the beginning of the story, when I
eventually regained consciousness, I lost all my memory and I couldn’t
walk properly.
My wife and I had to
go to Houston (USA), because we had to find out what was really
happening to me. That was how through an MRI, it was discovered that I
had tumours in my brain and an emergency surgery was advised. So, I
thank God it went well and God has been perfecting my healing. Since
April till now,
I’ve never really
done anything as regards my career. I thank God. I am back and alive.
God has been merciful, He gave me a second chance. But we thank God,
it’s benign and now my medication is dropping it. By God’s grace, my
memory is back. It’s not easy, it’s like a car knocking engine. I don’t
pray that such thing should happen to my enemy.
