RHOA star Kim Zolciak shared a photo with her fans featuring an X-ray image of her device that was implanted in her heart after she had a stroke two years ago. You can also see it below.
Poor Kim had to undergo open-heart surgery, but before this, she told E! News that the stroke was triggered by a blood clot caused by a genetic health condition.
Her aunt was diagnosed with the same condition as well a while ago.
‘My aunt also has the same exact thing with the same story at the same age which is crazy,’ Kim said back then.
Kim had been competing on Dancing With the Stars together with her partner Tony Dolovani, and she was forced to drop everything because of her severe health condition and medical issues.
Reflecting on that horrible experience, she said that ‘I’ve never seen doctors/nurses move as fast as they did the second I was wheeled in. I’m so thankful for my medical team.’
Kim is using her experience and her fame to make people aware of the warning signs of a possible stroke. ‘It can happen to anyone at any age!! When in doubt please always check it out!!’
