Elizaveta Bulokhova experienced intense pain and swelling in her right jaw. She knew that something was seriously wrong. She was later detected with Osteosarcoma or bone cancer of the jaw, one of the rarest kind cancers.
Bad News Hitting Hard
Considering it to be a toothache, the pain became unbearable. After a couple of CT scans and biopsies, the cancer was detected. Doctors suggested getting her jaw removed while she at the peak of her glamorous career.
Pregnancy at Halt
Later on, she came to know that she was pregnant and had to get it aborted because she was in her second trimester.
By October 2014 95% of her jaw was removed and it was reconstructed. The 16 hours long operation included a few things taken out of her body like nerves, veins, fibula, and skin grafts from her right shoulder and leg.
Reconstruction did not only focus on the jaw some of the body parts were affected too like taking bone from her leg and using titanium plates. To have functioning lips; nerves and tissues from the leg, hip and shoulder were used.
Blessing in Disguise
The reconstruction procedure did not go smoothly which ironically was a blessing for her. The late procedure caused chemotherapy session to start late. Eventually, this refrained her baby from getting aborted.
She decided to have a photo-shoot and lived through her cancer days with dignity. Photo-shoot was done by a Toronto based artist, Manolo Ceron.
