‘It will take time to get my body back,’ Yvonne Okwara on life post spinal surgery

Citizen TV host Yvonne Okwara has shared how challenging it’s been to recover fully from a spinal surgery she underwent last year.

According to Okwara being alive and healthy today which happens to be her birthday is something to be grateful for.

Taking to her social media to celebrate her born day, she said,

‘It’s been another trip around the sun for me.

Last year was interesting, had so many plans. Wanted to run 4 competitive marathons last year, culminating in my first ever 21km later in the year. Did the first one in January and then…

COVID happened. My birthday came just at the time we had reported our first COVID cases in the country so it was rather muted.

All events shut down.

Also, my back problems deteriorated. I was hospitalized twice, in May for a spinal procedure which didn’t quite work and then again for spinal surgery in July.

You know what they say about us making plans, but God making his own? Yeah…
So I had to adjust to my own new normal, made significant changes in my lifestyle.’

Yvonne added,

Fast forward to this birthday and I’m happy and healthy, I’m back to the gym, my workouts  have changed somewhat.

I’m still learning to be patient with my body, it will take time to get it back.

I will run a marathon later this year, God-willing.

So here’s to #38 , here’s to health, wealth and loving family and friendships. Here’s to aligning my plans with God’s.’
