“Teen Mom 2” star Jenelle Evans is “healing” after having one of her tubes tied and an ovary removed.
The reality star’s husband, David Eason, shared a photo of Janelle, 30, in a wheel chair holding a new surf board he gifted her on Instagram Sunday.
Got my babe a get well soon gift to encourage her to get back on her feet! It sucks you had to go through this but at least we got some answers and you should be all better in no time! I love you so much!
US Weekly reports that Evans had polyps on her uterus and cysts on her ovaries. As a result, doctors removed her left ovary and tied her right.
According to the Mayo Clinic, “uterine polyps are growths attached to the inner wall of the uterus that extend into the uterine cavity.” Risk factors for polyps on the uterus include high blood pressure and obesity. Polyps can also lead to infertility.
Doctors sent Evans’ polyps to a lab for testing, US Weekly reports.
On the other hand, ovarian cysts are “fluid-filled sacs or pockets in an ovary or on its surface.” Most cysts form as a result of a woman’s menstrual cycle. These are called functional cysts.
According to the Mayo Clinic, they are “usually harmless, rarely cause pain, and often disappear on their own within two or three menstrual cycles.”
However, pelvic pain, nausea, and vomiting are all associated with complications such as ovarian torsion or a rupture. Large cysts can cause pain and bloating also.
According to US Weekly, Evan’s rep said:
“She’s healing properly and focusing on her business ventures…. [David] was by her side during the procedure.”
Evans previously posted a message on Facebook saying she had her tubes tied and didn’t want any more children, US Weekly reports.
The MTV star shares 9-year-old Jace with Andrew Lewis, 4-year-old Kaiser with Nathan Griffith, and s 2-year-old daughter Ensley with Eason.
