Ree Drummond has been whipping up delicious family meals on Food Network since 2011. The Pioneer Woman likes to cook, but there are moments when…
SISTER WIVES star, Ysabel Brown has shared an intimate snap of herself months after corrective spinal surgery.
The 18-year-old daughter of Christine Brown posted a body-positive picture of herself, revealing her scoliosis scars to fans.
Ysabel posted the selfies to her Instagram story in a brave post, taking off her shirt to proudly display the remnants of her surgery.
In October 2020, reality star travelled first class to New Jersey with her mom and sisters to complete the surgery, despite their money troubles.
The teen bared all as her long blonde hair fell down her shoulders, captioning the post:
"a year ago today, i had scoliosis surgery a life changing experience but it was totally worth it."
"i've never felt so pain free and in control of my own body (a year later), the journey was definitely hard but i wouldn't go back and change a single decision made."
"The recovery was the most painful and challenging thing I've ever had to overcome but i believe it made me stronger, and also the scar is killer, for anyone that has questions about the surgery or my scoliosis journey-please ask away!"
"If you're contemplating the surgery, my advice would be (after a lot of contemplation and asking family members) to get it. this is how my scar has healed over a year."
"Still it sometimes is a little sensitive but i put cbd cream on it every night and that usually helps with breaking up the scar tissue as well as the pain."
Ysabel had previously spent five days in hospital recovering from the operation, while her mom and siblings stayed with Christine's sister, following surgery to correct a curvature in her spine due to scoliosis.
The teen stars in the TLC show following her father, Kody, as he lives life with four wives and 18 children.
Kody was slammed by Sister Wives fans for not accompanying his daughter after deciding not to travel because restrictions caused by the Covid pandemic meant he would have been separated from his three other wives and other children for four weeks.
Ysabel was diagnosed with scoliosis in 2017 in an emotional scene that was featured on the show.
Kody and Christine first tried to correct Ysabel’s aggressive curvature of the spine using a brace, but the condition worsened and they eventually decided surgery would be required.
Ysabel, fighting back tears, said in one episode: “Wearing the brace is hard because I look bigger and I can’t do as much, it’s hard emotionally, it’s horrible wearing the daytime brace. It hurts all over and I have bruises. It’s awful.”
Sister Wives scenes featuring the op and Ysabel’s recovery are expected to be screened in a new season of Sister Wives.
Christine, speaking in the show, said scoliosis affects three million young Americans each year, mostly girls aged between ten and 12.
