Savannah Chrisley Speaks Candidly about Her Ongoing Battle with Endometriosis
Savannah Chrisley opened up about her ongoing battle with endometriosis in the latest HollywoodLife podcast, where she revealed that she is considering freezing her eggs.
Savannah Chrisley recently opened up about her struggle with endometriosis on the HollywoodLife Podcast. The 23- year-old gave a detailed insight into her battle with the painful disorder.
On the podcast, Savannah revealed that she had kept to herself about her ordeal for years and struggled with the disease without her fans knowing it. She decided to open up about her most recent surgery in the new season of "Chrisley Knows Best."
Endometriosis is a disorder in which tissue similar to the one lining the inside of the uterus — the endometrium — grows outside. Savannah decided to talk about her experience to inspire others.
According to the reality star, women going through this would usually withdraw into their shell and feel ashamed of their bodies and uncomfortable. She hopes to let others know that they are not alone by talking about her battles.
Savannah said she became the subject of negative comments and criticism about her weight gain in her show's second season. She explained that her weight gain was caused by the endometriosis medication she was taking at that time.
The reality star has carried her followers along with her treatment via social media since she went public about her diagnosis. Savannah said she had just undergone her third surgery for the disease she has been battling since 18.
The duo called off their relationship two months ago.
In one Instagram post, she let fans know the psychological and emotional impact the condition has on her. Following her third surgery, Savannah revealed via an Instagram post that a huge cyst was removed from her uterus and surroundings, and a nerve had to be cut to help reduce the pain.
Savannah had considered the option of freezing her eggs due to the treatment process. She would take the insurance policy of freezing her eggs if she does not become a mum by the time she is 27.
Although she admits to having felt lonely at some point in her journey, Savannah has a supportive family helping her through the entire process. According to Savannah, her dad, Todd Chrisley, has supported her throughout the journey.
Savannah revealed that her dad has done an excellent job studying endometriosis's struggles and can relate to how she feels, which she appreciates a lot.
Although she is going through a lot lately, the 23-year-old took out time to talk about her failed relationship with her ex-fiancé, Nic Kerdiles. The duo called off their relationship two months ago but have remained on speaking terms.
While she explained that neither of them could give the other what they needed at the time, she still considers him family. Savannah announced in September that she and Kerdiles had broken up nearly two years after getting engaged.
Savannah has reportedly grown both emotionally and professionally since their break up. Her fans will be looking out for what she decides to do next, hoping for the best.
