“Selling Sunset” star Heather Rae Young is healing up after medical treatment.
The star previously revealed the news on Instagram with a throwback pic to her vacation in Mexico.
“Hard to believe less than 24 hours ago I was soaking in the sun by the water in Cabo, and now I’m laying in bed recovering from vocal chord surgery 🤕,” she captioned the post.
She continued, “Grateful to have such good doctors, amazing husband taking care of me, and all of my sweet friends for sending me flowers!! I appreciate all of the love from all of you during this time.”
Along with the vacation pics of the actress in a bikini, she included a photo of herself in scrubs connected to medical machines in a hospital bed, as well as a photo of herself bundled in blankets showing off all the flowers she received.
“It was a long time coming for me as I’ve been battling vocal stress for years,” she admitted. “After resting for 3 months I was never going to be 100% so surgery was my only route.”
Fellow “Selling Sunset” stars Mary Fitzgerald and Jason Oppenheim sent their wishes for recovery with Fitzgerald writing, “Hoping for a speedy recovery for you! 💗” and Oppenheim adding, “Get better soon.❤️”
Rae then updated fans two weeks later saying that vocal rest “is not ideal” for her.
“I always try to find the positive in any situation, so I’m determined to make the most of it by using this time for personal development,” she continued.
“In the long run, I know this is the best thing for me. It’s a great feeling to know that my career is still here waiting for me, my friends are all supporting me and of course my love @therealtarekelmoussa has been so amazing in taking care of me and helping me rest.”
Rae shared the lesson she has learned through the rest: “sometimes… what feels like a challenge is actually an opportunity to learn, grow and become a better version of me!”
