A few months back we were very happy to see Citizen TV news anchor, Yvonne Okwara make a major comeback to TV after being away for a while. She had been dealing with a disc spine disease that almost robbed her of permanent wellness and left her resigned to a fragile condition.

In as much as we were happy to see her back on two feet healthy, energetic and ready to work, we did not know much of what transpired during her low moments when she was tucked in bed dealing with all the frustration that came with the disease she was battling.

Yvonne recently revealed that she had underwent surgery to correct a spinal problem she had been battling.She noted that she has been dealing with two slip discs in her lower spine, which were causing her a lot of pain for about 2 years and after trying all kinds of medication and different forms of treatment, she decided to go for surgery, and was recuperating well.

That was tough to read and imagine but we are all glad Yvonne is alive and well.
