As fans of celebrated comedian, Julius Agwu, hope for his early return to the entertainment scene, he has given further details on the health issue that has taken him out of circulation for some time.
Agwu shocked many people earlier in the week when he revealed that he had undergone a surgery for brain tumour.
According to Agwu, the crisis started with a progressive weight loss until he suffered a seizure in May.
After his wife, Ibiere, and maid initially rushed him to their hospital in the Lekki area of Lagos, where he was stabilised, they had subsequently taken him to the United States for further treatment.
It was at the Park Plaza Hospital, in Houston Texas, that a series of tests revealed two lumps in the versatile comedian’s brain..
The lumps had been messing up his health and causing his incessant weight loss. Immediately, the surgeons went to work, operating on him for about four hours on Tuesday, May 12, 2015, at the hospital. After he was discharged, Julius rested in the US for some time before returning home recently.”
Also in a telephone interview on Wednesday, Agwu recounted the ordeal.
He, however, gave the assurance that he was recovering well, saying, “God is healing me.”
According to experts, a brain tumor or intracranial neoplasm occurs when abnormal cells form within the brain. There are two main types of tumours: malignant or cancerous tumors and benign tumors.
