I underwent an operation to remove a fibroid more than 10 years ago. As a result, I had to go for yearly check–ups. During a particular visit, the doctor found a black patch in my womb. Feeling uneasy, she sent me for a second scan at a hospital a month later.
The results confirmed her suspicion. The black patch was indeed a cluster of cysts that had formed a tumour, which also known as a neoplasm. The doctor wanted to perform an immediate operation as the tumour was quite big. She also did not want to take any chances as it may spread if it were cancerous.
The tumour sat on my ovary and I was given two options. The first option was to remove one side of my ovary together with the tumour and send it for a biopsy test. And if the tumour turned out to be malignant, the doctor would proceed to remove my entire womb. The alternative option was to simply remove the womb. I ended up choosing the first option as I still hoped for the best!
My operation was scheduled on 11 May 2016. My friend who was concerned about me, invited to New Creation Church on 8 May. Initially, I turned down the invitation as I felt that even if I attended the service, the message would not help my condition. But my friend persuaded me to attend. Out of obligation, I went along.
During worship, we started singing the song “In Whom I Can Trust” and I was moved by the Holy Spirit. Tears started to flow non–stop and at that moment, I told Jesus about my fear and asked Him to cure my diseases. I just surrendered myself to Him!
After the church service, I stopped having nightmares and was able to have a good sleep. I also felt at peace as I had trusted in Him.
On the eve of my operation, I had to drink three glasses of laxatives which I called “poison” water. During my last operation, they sent chills down my spine when I drank them. This time round, I prayed to God to make the “poison” water sweet before I took the drinks. Amazingly, they tasted sweet! I drank all three glasses with ease and I was stunned. Praise the Lord!
I went for my operation the next day at 9am and was back to my ward by about 2pm. At 9pm, the doctor informed me that I had no cancer as I had no tumour to begin with and she did not remove my ovary! The tumour turned out to be a fibroid which was a common but non–threatening growth.
Indeed, it was a miracle! Though puzzled, I was happy to know that I had no cancer and that my ovaries were intact! I think the doctor was as surprised as I was!
I believe that God had worked behind the scenes to turn my situation around. Our God is a true God! Praise the Lord! Amen!
