‘PBB’ alum Fumiya Sankai to undergo lung surgery in Japan
Former “Pinoy Big Brother: Otso” housemate Fumiya Sankai is set to undergo an operation after finding out that he has a hole in his right lung.
Sankai revealed his condition by showing himself on a hospital bed in Japan, with a tube connected to his body, as seen in a vlog on his YouTube channel last Tuesday, Dec. 10.
He explained that his doctors would have to cut his lungs to remove the hole they had discovered. Sankai also admitted to being nervous about the surgery, but added that it was something he had to do.
Aside from his right lung, his left one may have to be operated on as well, since there is a possibility it may also have a hole.
“That’s why [I’m] sad. Bakit (Why) my lungs is like that talaga?” he said.
Despite his left lung, Sankai stated that he would focus on the operation for his right one first. Sankai also assured his fans and followers that he would do his “best” when he undergoes the procedure.
“Laban, diba (Just fight, right)?” he said.
He then took the time to express his gratitude to his supporters for their well wishes.
“I saw your [comments] and then I got energy from you guys, thank you so much,” he said. “Maraming salamat po (Thank you very much).”
Sankai also revealed that the tube connected to his body would hurt him because it would come in contact with his back at times, as seen in a separate vlog on Dec. 8.
His brother Shunya stated that Sankai chose to post vlogs of his current condition because “he wanted to encourage the viewers by not only showing the fun part but also the struggles he had without being ashamed of them.” /ra
