Health Update: Briana Culberson Has Another Neck Surgery

Real Housewives of Orange County fans have watched Briana Culberson struggle with various ailments for years, and now she’s going under the knife yet again in an attempt to improve her health.

Briana’s husband, Ryan Culberson, announced Thursday that Brianna was having another neck surgery to help with a condition she has called “stylohyoid syndrome.”

“Please keep Briana in your thoughts and prayers this morning as she has another surgery on her neck. Hopefully, this is the last one!” Ryan told fans while sharing a photo of Briana.

Ryan then elaborated further on Briana’s condition.

After neck surgery last year, Briana found out she had Lupus and announced the diagnosis at the RHOC season 11 reunion.

“It’s better. I had a major surgery on my neck a couple months ago to remove more tumors, and they figured out that I have lupus,” Briana said to Andy when asked about her health. Adding, “They said that I still can possibly be very early lymphoma that’s not detectable. So I have to be diligent, but for now, it’s just lupus.”

Meanwhile, back in October Vicki gave an update on Briana’s health and insight into her daily struggles.

“It’s been a tough year for her. She was back at the doctor on Friday. Lupus has affected part of her heart; it’s literally something every other week. It affects her in different ways; her immune system is very low,” Vicki explained to Page Six. 

“You know, she’s finding her way with what she can do with it, her health. She wants to work, she wants to be a nurse, but she’s limited,” Vicki added.She’s a trooper; she’s young, she’s got age on her side. She’s 30; people live with Lupus, it’s just unfortunate. She’s going to be okay.”

The AllAboutTRH Team sends our love to Briana and wishes her nothing but the best. Briana’s health struggles have been devastating to watch, but as Vicki said, Briana’s a trooper and handles it all with such grace.

    Unfortunate that Briana has to move across the United States to get away from her mother. Now is when she needs a stress free life. Something Vicki knows nothing about.

    Jeez, this girl has really had it, health wise. Quick recovery Briana

  • ~Medusa~

    I wish Briana well. She’s had the bad luck to be subjugated by a manipulative, delusional, controlling, LYING mother most of her life. It isn’t fair that she has to suffer from major health issues, now!!! But, taking a smiling selfie before going into the OR is really strange…

      Can’t be easy being Vile’s daughter

      • ~Medusa~

        I agree. For that reason alone, Briana deserves an award!!!

        • Rain

          The ‘Mommie Dearest’ award for pain and suffering in a lead role ???

  • samael

  • Rain
