Siggy Flicker's battle with fibroids was a blessing in disguise. The Real Housewives of New Jersey star exclusively revealed to RadarOnline.com how her fibroid surgery exposed a life-threatening health crisis.
"The last two years have been difficult for me because I had a hysterectomy," the new housewife told Radar. "I had a problem with fibroids. Even when I was pregnant they blew up with the children and they went back down to the size of a penny."
When the Write Your Own Fairytale author began feeling discomfort, she was told she needed to undergo surgery because her fibroids had become inflamed.
"During surgery they found a pre-cancerous tumor on the other ovary," the mother-of-two shared. "I had a full hysterectomy. I got hot flashes... I was high and low, and all over the place. I was very grateful for that."
The life-saving surgery wasn't the only time she went under the knife, as she revealed that in addition to a facelift, she removed her breast implants. '
"I decided I no longer need them," the Just Sayin' podcast host explained. "I said, 'Why do I need to be walking out with oversized boobs?'"
But Flicker isn't the only housewife who has underwent surgery for fibroids, as Real Housewives of New York star Bethenny Frankel has been open about her battle as well.
After revealing she lost 10 percent of her blood from consistent bleeding, she underwent surgery to remove her non-cancerous fibroids in May.
