May peklat pa! GMA dispels rumors spinal ailment just for show
Speaker Gloria Macapagal Arroyo showed the scars on her back to prove she still suffers from the spinal ailment that forced her to use a neck brace when she was under hospital detention for four years.
In an interview with GMA News’ Arnold Clavio, Arroyo showed the scars she had after having surgery in 2011 for multilevel cervical spondylosis, which affects the spine.
“Nand’yan pa, nand’yan pa. Nandu’n ka naman sa ospital nu’ng kaka-opera ko di ba?” she told Clavio.
“Oh so, Ikaw nga unang nagpakita sa buong mundo ‘yung gaano kalaki ‘yung … kahaba ‘yung operasyon sa likod,” she added.
Arroyo said the metal points on her back ease the neck pain she feels from time to time.
The former President was often seen wearing a neck brace and using a wheelchair while she was detained at the Veterans Memorial Medical Center over plunder charges in connection with the alleged misuse of P366 million in PCSO funds from 2008 to 2010.
She can now work and appear in public engagements without a neck brace.
