The 26-year-old Asami (@asami_yuma) said on Twitter that she is suffering from side effects, such as hair loss and a reduced ability to produce blood cells in her bone marrow. “But my physical condition is fine!” she wrote.
Asami began suffering from stomach problems in January. A subsequent MRI exam revealed that she had ovarian cancer.
In February, the actress had surgery to remove a tumor — classified as being between malignant and benign — in one of her ovaries. Doctors also removed her uterus and ovaries.
とりあえず予定されていた、抗がん剤６回が終わりました！ まだ骨髄抑制(白血球などが下がる)や脱毛などの副作用はありますが、体調は大丈夫です！ 心配して下さってる皆様ありがとうございます(>_<) 生放送なので不安もありますが、今のありのままの自分をお伝えできらたなと思っています。
