A woman who was told her ovaries were “dead” after battling breast cancer has told how she defied the odds to have a second child.

Gemma Isaacs, 33, claims a vegan diet helped her fall pregnant with her “miracle” baby boy, who was born last year.

The Londoner, already mum to daughter Ella, was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2018 when she was only 31 even though she did not have a lump or any other common symptoms.

Gemma underwent radiotherapy and a double mastectomy, and later found out she had the BRCA1 gene mutation, which puts women at greater risk of both breast and ovarian cancer.

Doctors told her that her ovaries were “dead”, and she considered having them removed.

Speaking to Shin Min Daily News, the woman, who is seven months pregnant, said she was warded for five days. She also vomited and had diarrhoea over 100 times after eating at Eng’s Heritage’s Northpoint City outlet on Jan 7.

The 30-year-old had visited the wonton noodle chain with her husband, 32.

Mere hours after eating there, her husband began experiencing sudden sharp pain in his abdomen, she recounted.

He also had diarrhoea “till his legs were wobbly and he felt faint”.

“As for me, it was about 5am when I started vomiting and having diarrhoea. After tossing and turning the whole night, we rushed to a gynaecology clinic as we were worried the baby would be affected,” she said.

A pregnant North Queensland woman has told of her distress at being taken to a carpark to be given necessary injections in her buttocks while quarantining at a Gold Coast hotel.  

Tears well up in Cherie’s eyes as she recalls having to stand in the carpark of a doctor’s surgery and lift her skirt while a nurse gave her the injection.

“I was in shock the first time and just let them do it, but when I got back to my room I just started crying,” Cherie, who does not want her surname used for privacy reasons, said.

“I felt my dignity had been taken away and I was not treated humanely.”
