Nollywood actress, Zainab Balogun, has recounted her battle with ovarian cyst, said she decided to cancel surgery and resumed prayers believing God for a miracle.

The actress had first shared her experience with endometriosis in March 2022. While recounting what she went through she said;
“I have wanted to say these eight words for a very long time, that ‘I am the woman God has shown mercy’. My story started in 2020 when I discovered I had two ovarian cysts and I had to have surgery for that. I was also diagnosed with stage 3 endometriosis.
“Surgery was scheduled for the 4th 0f July. On the 1st of July, I went to do my pre-surgery scans and before I left, I said to God that I want this scan to be different, and I felt it in my spirit that the Holy Spirit was telling me, Tomorrow, you’ll know”.
“Beginning of September, I went to do an MRI scan as recommended by this doctor. He told me, ‘This is treatable. These are the options you have for this’. So I said, ‘When it’s time for egg freezing, they’re going to inject me with hormones, so how is this going to affect the left cyst that is still there?’ So he told me, ‘There is no cyst’. I asked, ‘what do you mean?’ And he says ‘Thank God you didn’t go through surgery but there are no cysts in your body“, she added.
