Did Sister Wives Kody Brown’s Stop his Daughter from Getting her Spinal Surgery?
Fans of Sister Wives saw the intense ending of the show’s fifteenth season on April 18 and one thing that stands out in the minds of everyone is if Christine Brown was able to defy her husband to get the much-needed spinal surgery for her daughter, Ysabel. During the season finale, the members of the Brown family deal with some things. Meri and Kody’s marital struggles seem to be getting stronger; Christine becomes more vocal about her relationship with her husband.
To add to that, the family is still unable to decide on the Coyote Pass property. However, none of these things means much to the Sister Wives fans who are extremely mad at Kody for his poor handling of the issue with Ysabel, his seventeen-year-old daughter with Christine. Even at the end of the finale, fans still don’t know if she gets her surgery or her father’s stubborn attitude gets in the way.
Christine Tries to Convince Kody about the Severity of Ysabel’s Pain
During a visit to Christine, Kody gets an earful about his daughter’s condition. Christine starts by telling Kody how difficult it was to get insurance. She said it took six months to get it. Ysabel has had scoliosis since she was fifteen. The condition is the reason why she needs spinal surgery.
While Christine is explaining her daughter’s condition to viewers, she gets very emotional. Through the explanation, fans get an insight into the pain Ysabel has been feeling. She has been going through a lot. Christine explains that Ysabel needs the surgery to be a normal teenager. She adds that she had been helping her daughter with exercises to manage her condition but things have gotten worse.
Christine also tells Kody that they will have to go to New Jersey on Monday. The surgery will take place two or three days later and they will stay there for ten more days after the surgery. True to his character, Kody insists that Ysabel can’t have the surgery because of the coronavirus pandemic. He wants the surgery to be postponed for another six months. Christine calmly kicks against postponing and states that her daughter is having her spinal surgery.
Even after Christine explains that her daughter’s pain level is always between an eight and a nine, Kody still insists that they should postpone Ysabel’s surgery. He also states that he won’t travel to New Jersey with them during the pandemic.
Did Ysabel Get her Surgery?
Yes, she did get her surgery. Distractify reported that Ysabel was able to get the surgery. According to the report, Christine’s LuLaRoe Facebook page contains a picture of Ysabel in a hospital gown, with a caption announcing that she was in surgery. An October 1, 2020 post also reveals that the surgery was a success.
However, we still don’t know if Kody sticks to his guns about not following Christine and Ysabel to New Jersey. If he doesn’t go with them, fans of Sister Wives won’t be very surprised given his stubborn nature but we are glad that Ysabel gets the surgery.
