Marlene favela moved by recounting one of the most difficult moments of his life and that is was on the verge of death after suffering a stroke a few years ago after taking a flight from Mexico to Miami, a fact that led to intensive care and brain surgery.
In an interview with Mara Patricia Castañeda, the television star explained how she realized that something was happening in her body after the flight and that when she arrived at the first clinic they could only tell her that she had to go to a hospital emergency.
“Miami arrived and I felt a pressure here (on my forehead) and I said ‘now the allergy’. I go to my best friend’s house and I said ‘I feel kind of bad’. I felt pressure and I went down to run for an hour on the treadmill. I went up and said ‘yes it’s total flu’, I felt like a cut body. I lay down and started to feel that my legs and hands were tingling, I said ‘it’s not normal, take me to a hospital now’. We went to a clinic and They told my friend ‘take her to an emergency hospital because she has something on her brain’”, He commented.
After conducting several studies, the doctors came up with the diagnosis: a stroke, which kept her in intensive care for three weeks.
Although the doctors had faith that her body would absorb the stroke, it was not like that and she had to undergo a very delicate surgery, which was life-threatening.
“They told us ‘the lady has a stroke.’ That night they enter through the main artery to the brain, embolize the vein that was bleeding and say ‘you have to keep it under observation to see if the body absorbs it’. The body does not absorb it, they said ‘there are 2 options, have it under observation for 2 weeks in intensive care or surgery’. I spend three weeks in intensive care, they come and tell me ‘the body did not absorb, you are a young, strong woman and the most likely thing is that your surgery will be a success, but there is a risk because there may be infection, make the decision, speak with your family, make your will, ‘”said Marlene Favela
Marlene Favela recounts everything she suffered from a stroke: ‘I could have died’
The actress stressed that at that time she spoke with her family and that she knew that her operation would be perfect because that same day they offered her a soap opera.
“I spoke with my family and told them ‘I have made my decision’, that same day my manager calls me and tells me they want you for a soap opera… I went into my surgery on Thursday and on Monday I was already in the forums recording, yes with an appliqué and a shaved head ”, he said with a laugh.
For Marlene Favela it was one of the most challenging situations of her life and it was that she shuddered when she revealed that she could have died without realizing it.
“My surgery was a wonderful success, I did not need rehabilitation, I did not need medication and I am very blessed. I could have died without realizing that I had thatAt the time of surgery, the artery goes to one side and the vein goes to another, so there is no way that I will have that event again in my life, “he concluded.
