    Guy shares inspiring story after surviving COVID and brain tumor

    MANILA, Philippines – It is difficult enough to battle COVID-19 but one guy inspires after surviving his COVID-19 battle, only to directly go into another one as he was diagnosed with brain tumor shortly afterwards.

    Filip Lloi Wycoco recently went viral after he shared his inspiring story as he survived both COVID-19 and a brain tumor. In his post on Facebook, Wycoco narrated how he experienced the most challenging moments in his life within just two months.

    It first started when he was diagnosed with COVID-19. He said that he developed all COVID-related symptoms and even had pneumonia. The first week, he experienced fever and chills. In the second week, he had uncontrollable coughs that caused his head to ache so much. So, the doctors ordered a CT scan.

    He was still confined at the hospital for COVID-19 when the doctors diagnosed his brain tumor. His family was told about the diagnosis but this was kept a secret to him as they feared he might feel more stressed with the news.

    When he finally recovered from COVID-19, they had to immediately schedule his brain surgery because the tumor grew much larger within just 3 weeks. Moreover, his brain was already swollen at the time.

    Putting his faith in God and boosted by the support from his family, Wycoco underwent the life-saving surgery.

    He later admitted that the recovery was excruciating and he had to rely on pain relievers to help him deal with the pain, but the good news is that the biopsy results showed that the tumor was benign. He doesn’t have cancer.

    Though his experience with COVID-19 was also a bad one, he believes it was still a blessing in disguise for him.

    “Even if most think na bad luck ang COVID sa mundo, I think that for us, it can still be a form of a divine intervention. Imagine hindi ako nagkakaroon ng any migraine in the past so surprised din ako ng nalaman ko na may tumor ako,” Wycoco wrote.

    “So instead of feeling sorry about my condition, I considered it as a blessing and now I’m on my way to recovery.”
