Per People magazine, in last night’s episode of The Kardashians, Kris Jenner decides to see an orthopedic surgeon after continual pain in her right hip. The pain was so disturbing that it reportedly disrupted Jenner’s mobility to the point where she couldn’t walk without a cane a week before.
it seems as though the pain that I’ve been experiencing has gotten in the way of my life, and that isn’t something that I could tolerate or have the patience for,” she explains. it’s an amazing life I live and I want to share it with my kids and grandkids. Let’s fix this and move on so I can live the best, longest life I possibly can.” Jenner reveals she had x-rays, an MRI and a CT scan done.
Dr. Helen Gundson broke it to the 66-year-old businesswoman that she needs hip replacement surgery. Hip replacement surgery can also be called total hip arthroplasty and usually, the arthritic is most common cause of this type of surgery. A metal, ceramic, or very hard plastic prosthetic joint is put in to replace the parts of the hip that are injured or deteriorating. According to the Mayo Clinic, the goal is to reduce pain and help with mobility.
after a conversation with Kim and Khloe, she mentioned that When it was just me and Khloe [on a bed talking], I told her I had said [to the doctor], ‘No. Just put me in a wheelchair, get me home, and I’ll take care of myself, but this hip’s not worth it.’ When her doctor then talked to her daughters Kim and Khloe and she watched their faces go pale, she admitted to herself that The aging thing was making me nuts.
As she talks, she starts getting more emotional, culminating in tears. It’s like I just feel so precious about time, she said. You just realize you don’t have that much more time. It’s like suddenly, I can’t do all the things . . . My hip goes out, my knee is torn. I have an eye infection, I can’t see. I have the TV up too loud and Corey says I can’t hear. It’s like I feel like Humpty Dumpty, Jenner said.
Getting older certainly is a daunting prospect, especially for someone like Jenner, who is a pillar in both their family life as well as their career, and even better so as an entrepreneur and TV personality with so much going on. We wish her a fast recovery.
