SISTER WIVES Why Ysabel had to get her back surgery during the COVID-19 pandemic

In August of 2020, Christine Brown informed her then-husband Kody that their 17-year-old daughter Ysabel Brown would be getting much-needed spine surgery for her severe scoliosis in September. They would have to travel to New Jersey to get the surgery, which made Kody ask that the surgery be delayed because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

SISTER WIVES Kody tells Ysabel to not become a “bitter old housewife” because he won’t be with her for her surgery

Scoliosis, which is a curve in the spine, has caused Ysabel Brown to live in constant pain for years. In the past, she tried alternative treatments, but in 2020 the pain got so bad that she wanted to undergo spinal surgery so she could live a pain-free life.

In Season 15, her dad Kody Brown at first pushed back about the surgery because of his COVID-19 concerns and then told her to go have surgery alone. He later revealed that he didn’t take Ysabel’s surgery seriously because he thought her mom Christine was using it to manipulate him.
