    ROHD Jojo Robinson’s Extreme Health Scare: A Rollercoaster of Emotions

    Reality TV star Jojo Robinson, famous for her role on The Real Housewives of Durban (RHOD), recently experienced a dramatic health crisis that had fans and friends deeply concerned. In a heartfelt Instagram post over the weekend, Jojo opened up about the terrifying ordeal that landed her in the hospital due to severe kidney complications.

    Jojo, married to the affluent businessman Calvin Robinson and a devoted mother, shared a series of bedside photos featuring her close friends. Among the visitors were her RHOD co-star Nonku Williams and Ruan Scheepers, another familiar face from the show. Their presence brought some comfort during this alarming time.

    “When you’re perfectly healthy and the next minute you find out your kidney was near failure,” Jojo recounted, capturing the sudden and shocking nature of her condition.

    The nightmare started when Jojo woke up in excruciating pain at 1 AM. A rushed trip to the emergency room revealed a 1.6 cm kidney stone obstructing her urethra, causing a severe backlog in her kidney, which had turned to pus. Immediate surgery was required to remove the stone and place a stent to save her kidney. The doctors informed her that without this intervention, her kidney could have failed within a week or two.

    “Long story short,” Jojo explained, “I was rushed to the emergency room at 1 AM with excruciating pain. They found out I had a 1.6 cm kidney stone blocking my urethra, leading to a backlog in my kidney where it had all turned to pus. My doctor removed the large stone and placed a stent in the kidney to help save it. I was told my kidney was a week or two away from failure if this didn’t happen. In two weeks, I have to undergo another surgery to remove the stent and other stones still in my kidney.”

    This isn’t Jojo’s first brush with surgery. Earlier this year, in February, she shared her experience undergoing brachioplasty surgery to remove excess skin from her arms. This procedure was performed by the same surgeon who handled her tummy tuck surgery two years prior.

    In a graphic video detailing her brachioplasty, Jojo candidly discussed the pain and recovery process. “I’m very sore today, but it’s manageable. It’s safe to say I won’t be doing much this week. I have to wear compression garments for up to three weeks, but surprisingly, it’s not that uncomfortable.”

    Despite the discomfort, Jojo maintained her humour and positivity. “The surgery was a day procedure, and I was able to leave the same day. Though the ride home was hella uncomfortable, not gonna lie. I’m home safe and just laying in bed all week. Sorry, not sorry. I’ll update you in my stories as the week goes on … we should hopefully change the dressing on Friday. Also, my boo bear, I love you so much. Thank you for taking such good care of me.”

    Jojo Robinson’s recent health scare is a stark reminder of the unpredictability of life and health. Her courage and openness in sharing her journey inspire her fans and remind us all to cherish our health and loved ones. As she prepares for her next surgery, her supporters are undoubtedly rallying behind her, wishing her a swift and smooth recovery.
