The Trend’s Panelist Njambi Koikai Wheeled into Surgery after Her Lung Collapses (PHOTO)

Njambi Koikai is no stranger to the showbiz scene as she has worked for KBC and even hosted Q FM’s afternoon reggae show, MaAfte na Mwafreeka na Njambi.

You might have also spotted her on the Trend as the fiery beautiful panelist. Sadly this lovely panelist revealed that she is battling a serious case of Pneumothorax which is a situation where gas accumulates in the cavity between the lungs and the chest wall, causing the lung to collapse.



Njambi’s right lung has collapsed partially and she had to be taken into surgery before the situation escalated three days ago.

After the surgery Njoki can now sit up and move around her room but she is still in great pain because she has a tube inserted in her lungs and connected to a bottle.

Njambi took to social media and narrated her ordeal by writing “So after three days i can sit up and move slowly around my room. It is extremely painful as i have a tube inserted into my lungs then to a bottle that restricts my movement. Jana was really painful…I cried…I wailed and if you reminded me of my strength I’d look at you in disbelief. There’s a painkiller called pethidine…it is lethal…they gave me that jana and I knew I was gone. Throughout the surgery I kept screaming and wailing that God is with me and I have purpose to fulfill His mission and vision. Take a minute to thank God for good health. That’s all that matters! My grandma is holding firm even though we chose not to tell her of my sickness this time round due to her illness. Just thank God for your life…all these things we are chasing are nothing when you are confined to a hospital bed. You cannot feed yourself…they have to sponge bath you..Literally change your sleeping positions…do not complain…see me? Have a healthy day devoid of any sickness or illness…much love to all of you.”
