K24 prime time news anchor Karen Karimi, recently shared a post on social media explaining why she has been missing from their television screens for three weeks or so.
In the Instagram post, the beautiful lass went on to explain how, from nowhere, she suffered two disk slips while on air and how she was dramatically rushed to Aga Khan Hospital to seek medical attention.
Karimi who now said she is out of danger, said the pain she felt on her back could only be compared to that of labour. She went on to add that her doctors later found out that she had a tear on her lumbar spine (where it curves inward toward the abdomen).
Here is her post.
“Three weeks ago… I suffered a severe back pain live on air. The pain,,, I felt I was in labour 😳 I was rushed immediately to Agakhan Hospital. Straight to Private ward, on IV and multiple jabs for the pain. An MRI test was conducted and they found out I had a tear on my lumber spine that caused 2 minor disc slips. Ouch. My spine surgeon has been so helpful, went through tough physiotherapy. I am so thankful that I am recovering slowly, with my family and friends constantly checking up on me. I pray to get well soonest. Happy Valentine’s to me ❤ Make up and Hair courtesy @kesho_nzano 😘”
