RHOD's Kameron Westcott Had To Get Surgery For Extremely Rare Disease
Kameron Westcott revealed to her fans that she was undergoing multiple surgeries via social media. The Real Housewives of Dallas star made it out of the hospital and gave a recent update.
The future Westcott matriarch suffers from a disease that only affects 1 in 200k people called Achalasia. She shared a photo from the hospital bed on December 10.
'Feeling ultra fabulous today! Today I’m getting esophagus surgery to fix my achalasia. For those who do not know... Achalasia is when you lose the pressure of your esophagus tube and sphincter to push food down. (In blonde words.) Achalasia effects 1 in 200,000 people. It’s a rare esophagus disease and the cause still is unknown. A few years ago they developed a procedure in Tokyo, Japan called POEM. We now have 2-4 doctors in the U.S. using the method and so thankful that Dr. Mitchell Stravropoulos himself was trained in Japan to help cure so many Achalasia patients who are struggling in the US! Already completed one 3-hour surgery and headed off to the next phase of surgery, this is what the liquid diet in my stories has been about!!'
She took her treatment in stride as she jokingly complained about how 'not luxurious' hospitals were. Before her operation, the mother of two made sure to take her kids on a tour of New York seeing all the big apple has to offer.
On the 13th, Kameron made it back to Dallas.
The Bravolebrity shared a picture of herself with her feet up alongside a caption that read: 'Made it home from NYC!! Sipping my way through the weekend! (Literally 🤣) two more days til soft foods!! 🥤💕 Happy weekend everyone!!'
Westcott has had a breakout season of RHOD. She went from being seen as the stuck up princess to the hilarious diagram expert. She is also one of the only ones who confronted Leanne Locken on the show about her racially insensitive behavior before the reunion taping.
Get well soon, Kameron!
