Miles is grateful to see herself getting better and better
Several months after surgery, actress Miles Ocampo said her health is improving.
During the ABS-CBN Ball 2023, Miles shared with PUSH that she heaved a sigh of relief regarding her health following recent progress in her body. Although she still has to take maintenance medicine, Miles remains grateful for the good news.
“I’m good. I’m slowly but surely ‘yung progress pagdating sa health ko. Though for life na nga ako may maintenance. Ang agang magka-maintenance,” she said.
“But, at least, naagapan and pina-priority ko ‘yung sarili ko right now. Lalo na with my health,” Miles continued.
The actress underwent surgery due to a thyroid problem, which she revealed via a “Magandang Buhay” interview in April.
Recalling what prompted her decision to remove her thyroid, Miles shared that the decision was upon her doctors’ discovery that she had papillary thyroid carcinoma.
“I had to undergo thyroidectomy surgery to remove my thyroid glands. It all happened in an instant,” shared Miles.
Papillary thyroid carcinoma is the most common type of cancer that can affect one’s thyroid. The condition is most common in women under age 4 and is said to be caused by significant ionizing radiation exposure or genetics.
Miles said the pandemic made her realize to help herself improve and grow daily.
“I guess parang ang daming nangyari noong four years na yun na ang dami nating realizations, all of us, because of the pandemic, di ba? I don’t know. Siguro ang goal lang naman natin is to grow everyday and to be a better person,” she ended.
Miles is currently one of the co-hosts of the noontime show “E.A.T.” while shooting a couple of films on the side.
Last February, Ocampo earned praise from viewers for her performance in the pilot episode of “FPJ’s Batang Quiapo.”
