Surgery saved my life - Naomi

By unknown | Sep 15, 2008 | COMMENTS [ 0 ]

Naomi Campbell has spoken out about her recent operation in Brazil, insisting the surgery saved her life.

Campbell revealed that she went into hospital in Brazil earlier this year for the removal of two cysts and doctors also managed to repair her damaged fallopian tubes, meaning she is now able to have children. But Campbell insists that her condition would have been life-threatening if she hadn't had the operation right away.

She says: "I was in pain for all of last year. In February I collapsed on the floor of my house. My girlfriend in Brazil persuaded me to go and see her doctor. The Brazilian doctors said, 'we've got to open you up, you've got two benign tumours'. One had leaked and caused an infection. Had I stayed with them in there for a further three months, they said my life would have been in danger."

She admits the operation had a positive outcome because it cured her infertility.

"While they [the doctors] were down there, they saw that both my tubes were blocked, so they unblocked one." - Wenn
