“My Chest Has Been Dripping Out Milk Since 2010”, Pastor Cries Out

A Kenyan pastor, Francis Gichuru Gachieki who is suffering from a very rare health condition that causes his chest to leak milk has been unable to have sex with his wife for over 10 years.

Francis, the founder of Christ Ambassadors Church International in Nairobi’s Mowlem area, developed ‘prolactinoma’, a medical condition which makes him produce milk from his breasts, shortly after he married his wife in 2000.

The condition is caused by a non-cancerous tumour in the pituitary gland in the brain, which controls hormones.

Pastor

Pastor Gichuru who has spent over £9,000 trying to get help, has become obese and weak because of the hormonal problem and is trying to raise £10,000 for another treatment.

He said when he noticed an ‘unusual liquid’ coming out from his nipples and told his wife, Merci Muthoni, 48, she examined his chest and found milk oozed out of his breasts when she squeezed them.

He says, “Actually, the problem began immediately after our wedding in 2000, then I could not perform to the maximum, but we could not figure out the root cause.”

“After stepping out of a cyber café back in 2007, I noticed an unusual liquid on my shirt, but ignored it and proceeded home in Kariobangi,” he said.

When he got home, his wife, Mercy Muthoni, also noticed the liquid discharge and asked him to remove his shirt after which she squeezed his breasts and discovered that the abnormal liquid was milk and not sweat.

He went to see a doctor who referred him to Kenyatta National Hospital and several tests were conducted. He says he felt humiliated when female patients started laughing at him as he queued with them in the same line

“Soon after, I started experiencing severe headaches, poor eyesight among other disturbing symptoms and even though doctors conducted several tests, including squeezing out milk for tests, they did not make a conclusive diagnosis,” he says.

“More than three doctors conducted similar tests as the condition took a toll on me. At some point, a group of doctors and students even stripped me naked while teasing me,

“when I heard a female doctor describing my condition and that it could be treated.”

“When my conditioned worsened in 2014, my doctor proposed a surgery in India, United States, Singapore or Israel,” he said. “This surgery is very important to me as it will restore my life including my libido’

Pastor Gichuru says he currently feels weak and has become obese; he is also unable to enjoy certain types of food. To date, he has used more than Sh1.3 million { £9,000 }on medical bills. Meanwhile, his doctors have estimated that he needs more than Sh2.5 million  {£10,000}for a complete surgery.
