Keep scrolling for details.
Chrishell Stause had a cyst on her ovary that was the size of a grapefruit.
In February 2023, Chrishell had surgery to remove a cyst on her ovary which was reflected during Selling Sunset Season 7. At the start of the season, reality star says she is experiencing pain and needs to take a rest while viewing a property with boss and ex-boyfriend, Jason Oppenheim, and some of the other agents.
In a confessional, Chrishell explains that she has been ignoring the pain, but no longer is it something that she can just brush off. After seeing a doctor, she learns that she has a large ovarian cyst that is "the size of a grapefruit" and requires surgery to remove it. Risks associated with the surgery include potentially losing her uterus, which really puts her on edge as she has opened up multiple times about her dreams of becoming a mom.
Fortunately, the surgery was successful and there were no complications. After taking some time off from work, Chrishell returns to work and you see the pep return to her step.
As it turns out, she shared a photo on her Instagram Story on the day of surgery, which was learned to be on Feb. 9, 2023.
"Had a minor surgery today and had a large ovarian cyst removed. Thank you Dr. Hakakha for taking such good care of me," she wrote in the story alongside a photo of her in a hospital bed, donning a hospital ID bracelet, a blue scrub cap, and a face mask which she had pulled down to show her face.
Chrishell added that she was "feeling good" and was being looked after by Australian musician G-Flip, who she married in May 2023, post-surgery.
Chrishell further notes to fans: "If you had bad unexplained cramps, don't ignore it."
Chrishell lost both her mother and father to lung cancer.
In April 2019, Chrishell’s dad, Jeff Stause, died of lung cancer. Then, in July 2020, her mother, Renée Stause, also died after a long battle with the same disease. During both of their struggles, Chrishell remained by their side and continued to help her mom fight her diagnosis in the year after her dad died.
While Chrishell isn't known to have any major health problems, she was nervous about this surgery. She recalled that the last time she was in a hospital, it was with her mom right before she died. It was difficult for Chrishell to accept that during this surgery, she was returning to the hospital without her family by her side.
Selling Sunset Season 7 is now streaming on Netflix.
