The past year has been particularly difficult for Yolanda Foster, as the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star’s battle with lyme disease has continued to take a toll on her body — but she’s hoping that she may have “hit the jackpot” in terms of treating her condition by removing her “leaky” breast implants.
The mother-of-three revealed she went under the knife with an intimate post on Instagram.

“Turn a mess into a message… We might have hit the jackpot by finding all this silicone from a 20-year-old implant rupture through ultrasound mapping as shown in this selfie,” the 51-year-old model captioned the... shot. “Thank you Dr. Feng for holding my hand and leading the way.”

A source close to the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star tells TMZ that she removed the implants earlier this week after she suspected the rupture and leaked silicone was exacerbating the symptoms of her Lyme disease — and already she’s seen a major difference. While it won’t cure her condition, the source suspects it’ll make treatment of the condition much more manageable.

Earlier this year, Yolanda revealed her symptoms had gotten so bad she lost the ability to read and write — but she wasn’t letting it get her down.

“As tired and hopeless as I feel at times, I have an undeniable spirit that will continue to fight and travel the world until I have the proper answers,” she shared on her blog.
“I keep reminding myself that I was given this task for a greater purpose, which keeps me driven and motivated to think outside the box to make a difference not only for myself but for all my fellow Lymies suffering some form of this debilitating disease that we know so little about.”
