Former Pinoy Big Brother housemate Alyssa Valdez gave her followers an update on her health as she slowly recovered from the dengue virus. On Instagram, the volleyball player gave a detailed description on what happened the past few days.

“Few days ago I was supposed to go to Germany to attend an event for Allianz then play for the AVC afterwards. Unfortunately, I tested positive for dengue,” Alyssa recalled.

The 29-year-old athlete recollected how painful the first few days of her sickness were. Alyssa shared that she wasn’t able to eat anything during the first few days as she lost her appetite.

“The first few days were so bad — Had a high fever, body pain, and headache. I wasn't able to eat and drink anything,” she added.

It was only on the sixth day into her sickness that her temperature went down to normal. However, the road to fighting the dengue virus wasn’t over for Alyssa as her platelet count went down to dangerous levels.

“My platelet count continued to drop dangerously to 37. I then experienced some complications like bleeding and a swollen liver. It was at this point that my doctors decided to admit me to the hospital with some initial discussions of a blood transfusion. My first few hours in the hospital were very crucial,” she shared.

The hours she spent in the hospital was very crucial for her health as doctors would determine whether or not she needed a blood transfusion. Fortunately for Alyssa, doctors ruled out the possibility of blood transfusion after her lab results came back.

As Alyssa slowly recovers, she urged her followers to stay safe and thanked them for keeping her in their prayers.

Alyssa missed out on the recently concluded AVC Cup for Women 2022 wherein her club team, Creamline Cool Smashers, finished at sixth place. The phenom will be missing out on the ASEAN Grand Prix which will be happening on September 9 to 11 in Thailand.
