Rorisang Thandekiso opens up about living with chronic pain after knee injury




Rorisang Thandekiso has opened up on her healing journey after her knee operation.

In a recent interview on Afternoon Express, the star opened up about living with chronic pain.

Rorisang said: “I’ve driven myself to the hospital in the middle of the night countless times in extreme pain and discomfort. This post is for my friends dealing with chronic battles. It’s OK to need people. It’s OK to have a bad day. I know it’s exhausting to keep explaining your diagnosis and the challenges it presents in your life daily.

“I know it is exhausting to be at work on your feet when your body is screaming pain. I know it is exhausting to feel like ‘you got this’, then two hours later your body fails you. I know it is exhausting having people give you all types of success stories and here you are,  still dealing.”

Speaking to Drum when she was bedridden and recovering from her injury, she said she was injured playing sport.

“I had to get an emergency operation after I injured myself during netball practice, this has been incredibly tough for me, not being able to walk or move around.”

Rorisang said she was coping because of the immense support she received from her family.

“This week was overwhelming. Sharing this because often we are encouraged to only post or share our best. This week was one of my worst.! From heartbreak to surgery, you name it, your girl was riding the wave. Oh but God is good. Thank you to my family, my mom, my sister. Words fail me,” she wrote.
