Yolanda Foster Suffers From Recent Lyme Disease Flare Up


RHOBH star Yolanda Foster suffered a relapse in her battle with Lyme disease earlier this month, and even though she has been discharged from the hospital, a new report says that Foster’s friends and family are concerned about her.

Yolanda was “hospitalized several days ago after suffering a very serious relapse of Lyme disease,” and insider revealed. “Even though Yolanda was discharged from the hospital, friends and family are very concerned.”

“This is a very, very serious disease, and Yolanda has been such a trooper dealing with it,” the source told RadarOnline. “All Yolanda wanted was to be home for Christmas, which has happened. The problem with Yolanda’s diagnosis of Lyme disease was that it was so advanced by the time she was finally diagnosed.”

“She had dealt with the illness for at least two years, before the proper diagnosis was given,” the source explained. “In that time, the disease wreaked havoc on Yolanda’s body. She still has no idea how it was contracted. You will never hear her complain about it, and Yolanda is determined to beat it.”

Yolanda’s daughters GiGi and Bella have returned home to Los Angeles from New York City to spend time with their mother and David, “has been so supportive during the most recent setback,” the source revealed. “Yolanda worries so much about him, you would never know she was the one battling the illness from just talking to her on the phone.”

  1. Poor Yolanda. I feel for her. She is a good person seems like. Her only problem is having someone like Brandi as a friend. She’s beautiful and such a good mom. I hope she gets this under control.

  2. The problem in America is that doctors are mostly incompetent and unable to write your symptoms; therefore, don’t get a diagnosis until a person is extremely ill. For over a decade I told every doctor that I tried to see for a diagnosis with the “classic symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea” and not a single doctor ordered any test. Luckily one doctor mentioned she would order a sleep test but she failed to follow up. After 8 months I had to ask what happened about the sleep test that I should have had already! The test diagnosed Severe Obstructive sleep apnea. Then my PCP failed to order the follow up testing so I had to file another complaint to have the CPAP testing. I learned a year later when no improvement was obtained by a very expensive bi-pap machine paid by Medicare that a second opinion of the CPAP testing that “no diagnosis was found during the testing” and the test should have been immediately repeated with higher oxygen pressures. My first sleep doctor failed to follow Medicare rules to retest after 90 days when no improvement occurs. She would not order another CPAP test or refer me to an Ear, Nose & Throat doctor to locate the obstruction that prevents oxygen blowing down my nose as a CPAP machine was to work. The second sleep specialist also failed to perform the repeat testing as he stated it would be conducted. All the second CPAP testing proved was that the first was incorrectly diagnosed. Again no oxygen pressures were found to stop my apneas which wakes me every time when an obstruction prevents air and my brain wakes me out of deep or REM sleep. I am slowly dying from lack of sleep. The second sleep doctor did not write his second opinion in my medical record because it could be used to prove my first sleep doctor was incompetent. Doctors protect each other when mistakes in medical care occurs. They do not punish or get rid of incompetent medical doctors. This is why medical costs are so high with bad results are obtained that does not provide any good medical care. This is why I am trying to organize Californians to “sit-in” at our state Capital to demand that our California Medical Board remove investigations of bad doctors from their board and put under a separate agency with Attorney General’s office to perform unbiased investigations. Doctors write false medical records to protect themselves against legal action or complaints. I have voice recordings and evidence that many of my doctors intentionally wrote false records and the medical board didn’t even bother to try and get that evidence or look at it when I sent it to them. My doctors and my PCP failed to write the symptoms that I complained about. I was shocked when I read my medical records. Then I saw that many times my previous PCP’s did write that a sleep test should have been ordered but failed to inform me and failed to write the request so it would be performed. One doctor, Ear, Nose & Throat specialist informed me that only a tracheotomy tube placement would correct my severe obstructive sleep apnea and he was sent a surgery confirmation and agreement letter so my medical records would be accurate. Copies were sent to my insurance of Contra Costa Health plan and In Home Support Services so medical care could be coordinated. None of the county agencies contacted the doctor or did they ever provide any services. When I returned to receive the surgery the doctor was unable to remember who I was or what his diagnosis or exams had been. He had no medical file either. Then he recommends a surgery that he previously informed me would be a complete waste of time. I declined his surgery asking for a report and copy of my medical records. I still have not received any medical records. The medical board did not investigate and neither did my Medicaid/Medicare insurance Contra Costa Health plan. They did nothing when I filed a letter of complaint. I still do not have any medical treatment for my illness. My pain management specialist also failed to care about my diagnosis and continued to write monthly large dosages of OxyContin that would have killed a normal person without any CPAP machine. I should be dead by now. I am not because I have an unusual body chemistry whereby pain medication and stimulants do not effect me as other people. I don’t respond to cocaine or opiods. I should be dead now.
    Yolanda if you want someone who can talk about your experience and anger of not receiving competent medical care please contact me. Kerrypaymann@gmail.com.
