Sydney OnlyFans model's frightening diagnosis after headache

·2-min read

A Sydney OnlyFans model has revealed just how dedicated she is to her fans – taking sexy snaps in hospital as she underwent brain surgery.

Ruby May, 25, had been suffering from frequent spells of dizziness, followed by a sharp pressure headache that would last for around 10 seconds each time.

After visiting the doctors, she was diagnosed with Chiari malformation, a rare condition where a section of the skull is deformed and puts pressure on the spinal cord.

Ruby, who has garnered a strong following on social media with 421,000 followers on Instagram, was admitted for surgery earlier this month and spent five days recovering.

However she still managed to update her dedicated fans while in her hospital gown.

“I can never bring myself to stop working and I took nudes in the bed in my hospital gown the day after surgery,” Ruby, who says she has made serious money on OnlyFans, said.

“I think it’s funny because everyone thinks my life is so easy because of OnlyFans.

“Meanwhile, I’m having surgery – but luckily, it helped me pay for it.”

In total, the operation cost $20,000 at a private clinic.

The model feels lucky to be alive and believes the headaches were a "sign from the universe".

Upon diagnosis, the 25-year-old was told that if she didn’t have the surgery, she would eventually become paralysed.

“I wouldn’t have thought anything of it [the headaches] but I had two friends who had brain surgery within the same year," she said.

“I also heard of someone who had been diagnosed with brain cancer.

“I’m so glad I [got checked out] because I went for an MRI, where they found out what I had.

“[The surgery] was approximately three hours long and I was so nervous, because I’ve never had surgery or anaesthetic before.

“I had to have a catheter in for 24 hours and couldn’t lift my head properly for a while."

Ms May said nursing staff were having to check on her frequently to make sure she didn't suffer any brain damage.

“I’ve been in a lot of pain but it’s all going to get better from here and I will hopefully not have any ongoing issues with it.

“It was one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to go through, but I’m so grateful I have my job with the money and flexibility to get through it," she said.
