Love Island actress Samie Elishi has postponed throat lump surgery.
In April, 23-year-old reality star shared her cancer scare.
Samie, who separated with Tom Clare on the show’s winter series, revealed that she had a 5cm thyroid mass after viewers called it out to her family on social media.
Samie cried as she said she was “grateful” to have been notified and had a biopsy.
Her bump was grade three, indicating doctors couldn’t tell if it was malignant.
Samie was supposed to have her surgery last week, but she was sick, so it was postponed until the end of the month.
The influencer told viewers in a YouTube video that she became sick on a cruise, turning it into a “horror.”
‘I didn’t realise how bad tonsillitis could be, but I was on an IV drip on the cruise to try and get food and water in me because I couldn’t eat or drink,’ she explained.
‘Then as soon as I landed, I was meant to go to the Beyoncé concert with PrettyLittleThing which I’m absolutely gutted I couldn’t make! But I had to land and go straight to the hospital.
‘Me and my mum went straight to the hospital and got checked out because the antibiotics I got given on the cruise were wearing off so I had to be admitted into hospital here.’
‘So I was there almost overnight and basically, I didn’t know this but you can’t have surgery if you have an infection,’ she added.
Her procedure will be in a few weeks.
‘My surgery was meant to be a couple of days later after the cruise so it got postponed. Now it will be at the end of this month so it is quite soon now,’ she added.
Samie went on to say how nice it has been for her to read messages from followers who can relate to her journey.
‘People have found lumps in their throat and went to get it checked out,’ she said.
She also said she no longer fears scars after surgery.
‘People have been sending me photos of the scarring which has healed, because that’s what I was worried about but I’m not anymore.
‘I just want it over and done with.’
‘So yeah, surgery is still going ahead. It just got postponed,’ she concluded.
