Instagram model Gena Tew is going through a difficult time right now. The social media star recently disclosed that she had received an AIDS diagnosis. She underwent eye surgery, and now she is dealing with new problems.
According to a TMZ report, the TikTok celebrity underwent eye surgery and as a result, is totally blind in one eye. Read on to find out what happened to Gena Tew and how she is feeling right now.
What happened to Gena Tew, an Instagram model?
Gena Tew has lost her vision in one eye. The Instagram model underwent surgery in August of this year, according to the news source TMZ, after her HIV diagnosis caused her to lose vision in her left eye.
There was a faint hope that the operation would eventually bring back her vision. Gena has disclosed to the media that she has once again gone totally blind in that eye.
Tew continued by stating that the only thing she can see out of her left eye is complete darkness. Close sources told the media that following the procedure, her vision improved for about five days before it returned to normal.
The social media sensation claimed that despite the doctors’ recommendations, the new medications had only made her worse. The physicians are currently considering performing another surgery. No decision has yet been taken by the medical community.
In addition to this, Gena has seen some progress in other areas. She has gained some weight recently. She increased her weight from 90 pounds to 105 pounds during the past few months. Right now, her main priority is regaining her ability to use a walker to walk.
Gena Tew revealed her AIDS diagnosis in March.
For those of you who don’t know, Gena, who is currently 27 years old, reported that she received an AIDS diagnosis in March of this year. She then made an effort to respond to every fan question regarding her diagnosis on social media. She also discussed how she acquired it.
The Instagram influencer later wrote on her Instagram profile, “I don’t know who gave it to me or where I got it; all I know is that they stated I had to have had it for eight to ten years because I was so ill to the point of death. I was homeless and living in New York City at the time.
In addition, Tew revealed that she had received free tattoos, indicating that it “might have been from a filthy needle.” She added that while residing in New York, she had been assaulted. Did I know those people, she continued. No. Did I speak up when such things occurred? No, I wasn’t because I was young, foolish, and naive.
Gena Tew is receiving my sincere love, light, and strength during this trying time. Please leave your good wishes in the space provided below. Keep checking back with us for the most recent information from the entertainment industry.
