BBNaija’s Boma Akpore finally made it after his near [email protected] experience (Photos)

Boma described how he contracted COVID-19 in December 2020, which resulted in a horrible sinus infection, on his official Instagram profile.

He said that up before the infection, he had never experienced sinus problems that lasted longer than three days. He further admitted that he was only breathing through his left nostril because his right face and nostril were occluded in half.

The only option left to him was surgery, which was scheduled for April of this year. However, he had a movie shoot in Nigeria as well as a BBN reunion that couldn’t be postponed.

Boma decided against having surgery and instead, after the final reunion episode, travelled to New York to have it done.

He was informed by the doctor that the infection had already reached the back of his head and that he might go blind or suffer brain damage. Thankfully for him, the procedure went smoothly.

My Testimony!!!

In 2020 December 2, I caught COVID-19 which led me to having a terrible sinus infection. Prior to then I have never had any sinus issues for more than 3 days. Then I got extremely busy going from One film set to another in the US, then I came home to Nigeria and stayed for another 6 months due to being on big brother naija and other press duties I had to attend. Afterwards I decided to return home to New York, all these while the sinus hasn’t given me any relieve almost 1 year after. I decided to see an allergist and between January and March 2021, I have had multiple doctors appointments and test which the scan results came back very unpleasant. Half of my right face/nostril was blocked and I was only breathing from my left nostril. At this stage I wake up with mucus from my right nostril every single day. At this point, my only option was to have a surgery as recommended by my Doctor. Surgery date was set for April 12. Suddenly I booked a movie role in Nigeria and shooting starts. April 8, my team and I decided to postpone the surgery till after the shoot. While I was in Nigeria the reunion date was also set, so I killed both birds with 1 stone. As soon as the last episode was shot I took the flight back to NYC May 7, to prepare for my surgery May 13. Doctor said the infection had already spread to the back of my head and I was told I could get blind or have brain damage has it was a head surgery really close to the brain and I got extremely scared. The surgery started at 6:30am and was due to be done 12pm, but I couldn’t wake up for another 3 1/2 hours, mehnnn, everyone was scared. I just want everyone to thank God for my life. After 2 months I’m back in the gym, 6th slide was me working out yesterday July 20th 2022 and ready to work again. God is good. I want to urge everyone to always check in with your doctors when having an usual feeling or sickness. PS : The grey area of the scan photo is the blocked part of my Face/Nostril. Big thanks to my friends and loved ones that took care of me when I was sick. May Almighty God meet you at your point of needs”.
