Janey Godley reveals she has to inject herself nightly after ovarian cancer op

Janey Godley has revealed she has to inject herself nightly following her ovarian cancer op.

And the Scots comedian – who went viral around the UK and beyond with her funny voiceovers of Nicola Sturgeon during lockdown – admitted she is finding it difficult to put the needle in.

Janey, who underwent a hysterectomy for ovarian cancer earlier this month, has been told by doctors she will require ongoing treatment of chemotherapy and drugs to try to eradicate the disease after it reached stage three – spreading from her ovaries.

The Glasgow born talent suffered from appetite loss, frequent urination, bloating, and back and tummy pain which made her seek medical advice in November.

It has given her a newfound respect for anyone in the same position.

She told her online followers: “I have to inject myself every night with blood thinners, it nips like fu**ity and I am convinced I am doing it wrong plus I have new respect for anyone who has to self inject for health reasons.”

The comedian added: “I am learning so many new skills and awareness through this diagnosis.”

After one fan suggested she could potentially take warfarin Janey told her the doctors treating her recommended she take injection and showed her how to do it.
