It happened a few years ago, but Jaime Pressly is ready to reveal a very scary health issue she went through.
The 37-year-old was on The Talk and had no qualms opening up about undergoing a mastectomy! She explained how she was diagnosed with mastitis, but she didn’t realize how serious her condition was at first.
The pain in her breasts began soon after she gave birth to her son.
Jaime admitted to the ladies at the table:
"I just thought it was normal breast feeding pain.”
But it wasn’t.
She soon found several lumps in her breasts and feared the worst.
Jaime then explained what her doctor was able to do, saying:
"He took the scar tissue out of this and then six months later – because when you open it spreads – I had to go back and do this one… I still have some breast tissue left but [they had to do] almost a full mastectomy. The mastitis…mutated into something else, because it sat dormant for a while. It was the craziest thing."
As horrifying as this all must have been, we’re so glad that Jaime didn’t have something much more serious!
And as for removing her breasts, Jaime is already cracking jokes about the life-changing procedure. She spilled:
"I think when we’re younger we want ‘em, and then you get older and you’re like, 'Can you just get rid of whatever extra you got, including hair?’”
