Why is Cheyenne from ‘Teen Mom: The Next Chapter’ having surgery?

Cheyenne was on her way to a doctor’s appointment, along with her fiancé, Zach Davis, and kids — Ryder Wharton and Ace Terrell Davis — when they were involved in a drive-by shooting. In the attack, the family of four’s car was shot 13 times. Immediately after, the car crashed into a Prius.

Although everyone made it out of the situation alive, Cheyenne opened up about the physical and emotional wounds she sustained during the shooting. In addition to her newfound battle with PTSD, she also learned that she needs surgery.

The Teen Mom star previously got breast implants, which were damaged during the accident. Cheyenne said in the Oct. 18 episode, “So this boob is like dented at the bottom where there was a really big bruise.”

Initially, she suspected that her bruising was only cosmetic. However, she soon learned that her problems were way more severe than she had originally thought.

Cheyenne added, “But this one the muscle collapsed so it pushed my implant up here so my implant sits on top of my chest and it's hard as a rock and it hurts so bad when I lay on my back. It, like, sticks out."

During the episode, she expressed her concerns about going back under the knife. She shared, “I just feel like I’m scared that if I go under, am I going to wake up?”

“I feel like god already gave me my second chance and what am I doing with my life? Going to get my boobs fixed?” Cheyenne said tearfully. “That's so stupid."

Although many viewers speculated that Zach’s criminal history was the cause of the shooting, he took to Instagram to clear the air. Per Teen Mom Chatter, he wrote in a since-expired Instagram story, “Stop the narrative that this was a friend or justify what we went through because I have a past.”

“This has zero connection. This is still an active case which is why we can’t give details,” he added.

You can watch new episodes of Teen Mom: The Next Chapter Tuesdays at 8 p.m. EST.
