While Joke Silva shared some news about her husband’s ill health, Mercy, in response, opened up about her almost-life-threatening scare.

Furthermore, the star actress mentioned that she and her husband had to face their new reality as she was placed on medication for life.

According to her, her last child was 6 months old when they found out about it, and during the surgery, she found out that she had to live on medication for the rest of her life.

“Odi and I have actually been here and I have never discussed it where we had, like uhm, a scare. I had a cancer scare in quote and I had like my thyroid removed. And it was like a journey for us because we had kids,” she revealed.Β 

“My last was six months at that time and then we kept on saying “okay, we have to understand that this is the new us, let’s go get the surgery done.” And then we got there, they said I was going to be on medication for the rest of my life and it was a reality that we had to sit down. You know, them giving me a timing and telling me you can’t miss your medication. Once you wake up that day, that’s the first thing. Telling me all of the side effects. So I’m reconciling with this, saying, it’s the truth. At the point you realize this is where we are, let’s grow from here, let’s live in this comfort zone,” she further mentioned.Β Β
