Seema Malhotra Reveals She Will Have Her Ovaries Removed After Battling ‘Excruciating’ Cysts And Admits She’s Unsure If She’ll Return To The Real Housewives Of Cheshire!

Seema Malhotra plans to have her ovaries removed after battling "excruciating" cysts and fearing she had cancer. The Real Housewives of Cheshire star confirmed that her current health struggle has thrown her future on the show into question.

"I'm at a point now where I will get the ovaries removed because I don't want to live with this pain anymore, it's too much," she told The Daily Mail. "I think it hit me last year. I had a hysterectomy about five years ago and ever since, I've kept having issues, also with menopause kicking in."

"Then towards the end of November, I was getting really bad pelvic pain. I knew there was something wrong," she shared. "You try and educate yourself but I was doing it the wrong way, I was looking on Google and thinking, "Oh my gosh, what if it's ovarian cancer?" "

The fashion designer said it has been challenging managing her health condition during the pandemic, especially during a "scary hospital visit" due to her agonizing lower abdominal pain. 

"When I spoke to my GP she said, "Look Seema, we will get to the bottom of this," because I think they realized I wasn't in a good place," she explained. "Eventually I got a face-to-face consultation with my gynecologist and they discovered I had a cyst on my ovary that was just under six centimetres big."

"When we went into lockdown, I ended up in A&E because my cyst ruptured. And even filming The Real Housewives Of Cheshire, I would be fine one-minute and then I would get excruciating lower pelvic pain where I would be in tears," she confessed. "I've read about it but until you go through it yourself you don't know what women have to go through. I know I'm not going to live with this."

Malhotra admits that she is uncertain whether she will continue filming the ITVBe hit reality show due to her health issues.  

"I ask that question all the time, can I juggle the two? At the same time, even though I suffered in the last season, the show was a great escape and all the girls have been so supportive," she told The Daily Mail.

She added, "It's a hard decision and I don't know yet, but I really do enjoy the show."
