Reminiscent of the 80’s , including my hairstyle, when I’ve been confined last, if I recall correctly. Nonetheless, I enjoyed my stay knowing I was in great hands and was super taken care of. From admissions, Joan and Monica , who were so gracious, my round the clock nurses, Aaron, Ria, Cheryl and Aika to my amazing top notch Drs! Starting with ortho DR Marc Castro, my admitting doctor as I went in for a meniscal tear surgery. And with the rightful insistence of Dr Martin Manahan , my gynecologist , I went in for further tests. So now that I mention my very thorough gastroenterologist, Dr Liboro, you might as well guess what else I came in for. And finally to my cardiologist, who cleared me for surgery, Dr Wensceslao, and lastly, but NOT the least my anesthesiologist , Dr Aypa! (Yummm) Let me not forget Louis and dra Corpus at the ultrasound dept and the vampires who sucked out vials of my blood. Apologies if I can’t Recall your names but you prick pretty good I have to say. And to all the kind fellows and residents who came to visit with clear explanations and reassurances. You guys are amazing! Deeply grateful ! And to all of you who sent me their concern and loving well wishes … you know who are… I love you guys . Most especially to my parents who gave me moral support , to one of my bff’s Tessie Tomas who came to visit , to my dearest @bianca.rogoff who checked in on me and chatted for a bit while she caught her plane back to NY form studies in Amsterdam and finally to Dianne, my loyal PA who undyingly and tirelessly stayed by my side every second . I am now rebooted and given a clean bill of health 🙏🏼 along with a new pair of knees ready to face the next marathon of this new chapter of my life THANK YOU ALL #onward Ps and to @MMC thank you for the care, the facilities and top notch doctors This is the longest post I ever written! Because #healthiswealth guys ! BUT at the end of the day.. love and laughter is still the best medicine 🤣
Meniscus tears, which affect knee cartilage, are common knee injuries among athletes and are more likely to occur as people age.
This is not the first such operation for Gil, as she said in a February 2018 GMA report that she had undergone meniscus tear surgery.
At 56, Gil has maintained a fit physique because of her active lifestyle. She told Metro.Style in an August 2018 interview that she goes to the gym, swims, runs and bikes, among other physical activities.
Gil was grateful to the hospital’s doctors and medical staff for the quality care and services that they gave her. She also thanked loved ones for making her feel loved and supported.
She said, “I am now rebooted and given a clean bill of health along with a new pair of knees ready to face the next marathon of this new chapter of my life.” /ra
