Karen Karimi, a news anchor at K24, put up a post on her Instagram page a few hours ago explaining why she has been away from our screens for three weeks or so.
In her post, the sultry newscaster narrated how she suffered two disk slips while on air and how she was rushed to Aga Khan Hospital for further examination.
Karimi said the pain she felt on her back was comparable to labor pains adding that doctors later discovered that she had a tear on her lumbar spine.
The TV siren said she is recovering slowly and expressed gratitude to her family and friends who have been checking on her since she got admitted.
This is what she posted:
Three weeks ago… I suffered a severe back pain live on air. The pain,,, I felt I was in labour 😳 I was rushed immediately to Agakhan Hospital. Straight to Private ward, on IV and multiple jabs for the pain. An MRI test was conducted and they found out I had a tear on my lumber spine that caused 2 minor disc slips. Ouch. My spine surgeon has been so helpful, went through tough physiotherapy. I am so thankful that I am recovering slowly, with my family and friends constantly checking up on me. I pray to get well soonest. Happy Valentine's to me ❤ Make up and Hair courtesy @kesho_nzano 😘
