Marine Simpson has revealed her body has “never been the same” since giving brith to son Rox almost one year ago.
The 28 year old Geordie Shore star is now considering having surgery after she was diagnosed with a chronic UTI as she claims treatment hasn’t helped her condition.
Marine previously opened up on her “soul-destroying” labour with son Rox, during which she had a haemorrhage and lost two pints of blood.
Ever since her labour, Marnie has struggled with various health issues – from issues with her bladder to shortness of breath.

Speaking exclusively to OK! online, Marnie candidly opened up about her health.
She said: “Since I’ve given birth I’ve never been the same, I honestly can’t explain it, it’s really weird.
“I don’t know what happened to me, I was absolutely fine during my pregnancy it’s after I gave birth my body has never been the same.
“And obviously I’ve got a serious chronic bladder condition, which is, I possibly might be getting surgery on later this year.”
Mum of one Marnie, who got engaged to Casey Johnson earlier this year, continued: “Besides that I’ve been having other health issues, the doctors don’t know what’s wrong, they think it could be a thyroid, they’re thinking it could be something to do with autoimmune.
“But, theres a lot of problems I’m suffering with and it all started after I gave birth. Before that I was fit, normal and healthy so they’re investigating at the minute.”
Marine revealed: “I’m struggling to breathe quite a lot and no one knows why, I’m getting monitored at the minute to try and find out what the cause is but there’s a lot of going on with my health, I don’t know what’s going on.”
After numerous appointments to try and get to the bottom of her health struggles, Marnie admitted she has lost faith in doctors.
She said: “Every single treatment that I’ve been given is just not worked which is bizarre so I was getting really, really ill from all of the medication they were giving me and it wasn’t making me any better, my bladder was worse than ever, so I’ve decided to come off everything and just try and heal it naturally through research and it’s crazy to say, but I’ve got myself into a manageable state.
“Don’t get me wrong I still have symptoms every day but they’re not restricting me like they were, they were actually worse when I was on medication, which is really bizarre.
“So I definitely think I’ll have surgery at the end of the year because I think there’s something else going on, I don’t really trust doctors any more, if I’m honest.”
