Radio star Nikki Hayes has opened up about a recent health scare, comparing the pain to “being in labour again”.

The Spin 1038 DJ recently had a bout of appendicitis and described it as agonising pain. Nikki said she initially thought she had picked up a winter vomiting bug, until her symptoms worsened.

She explained: “I’m the most unfortunate person in the world. I just thought I had the vomiting bug, so I was out of work on the Tuesday and then I went into Connolly hospital on the Wednesday,”

“They initially said that it was appendicitis, then they thought it was something else, so they monitored me for a few hours. I told the nurse that it was the nearest I felt to labour pains – which we’re meant to forget about.”

Nikki was rushed into surgery on Thursday to have her appendix removed, meaning she had to spend four days in hospital. After taking 10 days off work to recover she was back in the studio yesterday and reassured her listeners she’s “all good”.
