Denise Richards is recuperating nicely after undergoing emergency surgery for four hernias, and she has the most-essential support of all.

Actress and "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star, Denise Richards is on the mend. She underwent four impromptu hernia surgeries. 

Richards' husband, Aaron Phypers, updated his followers, and the actress's fans on her current state with photos on Instagram. The first showed the reality star healthy and happy.

EVERYDAY GETTING STRONGER

The second showed the actress in a hospital gown sleeping soundly, with her feet in a cast, and the third, showed her abdomen and lower body plastered at incision points. Phypers wrote in the accompanying caption,

"… These photos were taken a couple of months ago from an emergency procedure femoral hernia, not one, but four! Six hours, waiting close by. Love you, baby, every day getting stronger." 

The actress's husband added that Richards is the most incredible woman he knows. He called her his soulmate, beautiful, and someone who perseveres in all she does.

SHE COULD HAVE PREVENTED IT

The "Twisted' star reposted the photos shared by her man. In the caption, she wrote that she needs to thank Phypers for taking such "Great care" of her.  

She tweeted that Rinna should have called her "Friend" in private rather than asking questions on social media

The actress went on to write that she could have prevented the four hernias if she had slowed down enough to listen to her body and symptoms. She had two femoral and two inguinal hernias.

SHE KEPT IT AS A SECRET

Richards added,

"And I waited way too long, and didn't even tell my husband how bad I was feeling (I know it was stupid)."

The mom-of-three then advised her fans to listen to their bodies and take care of themselves. According to the American Hernia Society, over 1 million people get hernia each year, and the actress became one of them this year.

IT'S ALL ABOUT FAMILY

The RHOHB star had a lot of support from her fellow housewives. But Lisa Rinna's comment about the reality star missing a hangout raised a lot of eyebrows.

Camille "Grammer" Meyer came to Richards' defense. She tweeted that Rinna should have called her friend in private rather than asking questions on social media.

Thankfully, Richards' time of pain is over, and she's focused on the holiday season with her family. Earlier this month, the actress shared a photo of her family's Christmas card on Instagram.

It has the words, "Peace, love, hope," and the reality star wrote about her excitement in the caption. She noted that the holidays are all about family, and she is very blessed to call this family, "Mine."
