Denise Richards Recovering After Emergency Surgery for Four Hernias

Denise Richards is on the mend.

The 48-year-old Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star’s husband Aaron Phypers took to Instagram on Tuesday (December 17) to reveal that Denise underwent emergency surgery a few months ago to repair four hernias.

“To the most incredible woman my soulmate,” Aaron wrote. “I am always in awe of your Beauty perseverance, dedication in all you do. These photos taken a couple of months ago from an emergency procedure femoral hernia not one but four! 6 hours waiting close by. Love you baby everyday getting stronger! @deniserichards.”

Denise then reposted the photos, adding, “My hubby posted this & I need to actually thank him for taking such great care of me. This was a couple months ago & turned out to be a good lesson for me to always listen to my body. Being a mom, wife, & having a career sometimes it’s easier to just be strong and power through, I thought the pain & my other symptoms would just go away. They did not and got a lot worse. I’m so grateful to @herniadoc & her fabulous team. I thought I had one femoral hernia, I actually had 2 femoral & 2 inguinal. And I waited way too long & didn’t even tell my husband how bad I was feeling (I know it was stupid) … gotta always listen to our bodies & take care of ourselves.”

Glad to hear Denise is on the mend!
