‘I died for 10 minutes during surgery for degenerative spine’ – Toyin Lawani recounts

Celebrity stylist, Toyin Lawani has shared how she faced a dreadful experience during surgery, enduring a 10-minute episode of death when her lungs collapsed.

On her Instagram page, the mother of three shared a video of her ordeal and disclosed that she had been diagnosed with a degenerative spine and a cyst.

She showed her journey from before the surgery to the difficulties faced during the procedure. She explained that the surgery included an implant for the C5 and C6 on her spine.

“I died for a whole 10 minutes. While I was pregnant with my daughter @kingtinukeleora, I started having serious neck/back/leg pains. And it got to a point where I would get paralyzed on the left side of my body, and I couldn’t move at all. I was on painkiller injections all through.”

Lawani further revealed the severity of her condition, she said

“I was later diagnosed with a degenerative spine and a cyst in my brain. Guys, I died for a whole 10 minutes before they were able to bring me back to life.

“My lungs collapsed. I developed Oedema, and from fixing artificial implants in my spine to be able to walk properly again, I went on to developing complications that got me on a tracheostomy tube for three months.”
