Lulu Hassan is grateful to the almighty after undergoing a surgery to remove a plate that was put on her left femur to support her posture following a road accident that happened back in 2010.

The news anchor revealed this through her Instagram page where she narrated her untold story or the first time. In a lengthy text, Lulu Hassan wrote;

April 19th 2010..I remember this day like it was yesterday…I was going for an assignment in Kisumu but on reaching kapkatet it all happened so fast…i found myself at the siloam hospital in Kericho first aid was being administered.. Next thing I knew I was in the ambulance on my way to Nairobi for an emergency theatre at the Agakhan Hospital .

She went on to reveal the effects she underwent and why she even thought that she was never going to walk again. Lulu went on to add,

The next few months would be tough. If you would have asked me then if I thought I would be able to walk or be on my feet again, I wouldn’t have imagine that was possible. But; Alhamdullilah !!! It’s been 7 years walking with a plate on my left femur…On the 30th October,2017 i finally gathered the courage to walk into theatre for a surgery to remove it …i had been relying on this Aluminium plate for the last 7 years after the accident in 2010…. 7 years that saw my walking style and body posture change completely thus affecting my back and work not forgetting the excruciating pain i woud have to endure whenever i wanted to lie down…Alhamdullilah after the Monday surgery; the plate is out…i would like to donate the plate to any elderly patient who may need it and cannot afford it ..hit my inbox.

However now that the plate has been removed, the mother of two will not be on air for a while since she will need some bed rest. She concluded by adding;

I will be in bed for some time to recuperate. I would like to thank my family , friends, my boss who constantly reminded me that i needed to do something…Dr Thuranira i dont know how to thank you but you made me have faith with our medical practitioners and introduced me to one Doctor Mogire (He is God sent)…… ..To anyone going through a tough time now… Be encouraged. It shall pass. ..
