Drew Sidora struggled to walk in the latest episode. The Real Housewives of Atlanta star suffered a severe injury that made it difficult for her to walk during a group trip to Jamaica. This caused her to seek emergency medical help. On Sunday’s episode of the Bravo series, the 37-year-old fell when she raced Marlo Hampton at the National Stadium.
The fun moment quickly took a serious turn. Drew is a former track and field star. She wanted to race Marlo, who is an Olympian champion. She admitted that she shouldn’t have done it in the first place. She made the wrong move and hurt her ankle. Read on to learn more about Drew’s injury.
What happened to Drew Sidora?
The RHOA star explained what happened in her confessional. The Step Up actress realized that she couldn’t move her ankle. It just gave out on her. Her husband Ralph Pittman asked her to remove her shoe so he could get a good look at it.
Drew Sidora hurt herself during her athletic career, and didn’t want the same injury to happen again.
“I shouldn’t have been doing it,” Drew Sidora said. “I took the next step and I immediately felt my ankle gave out. I knew immediately this is a ruptured Achilles again.”
She immediately went to the doctor, who confirmed that she had torn her Achilles tendon, which is the most sensitive part of the foot. If you severely injure it, you may never walk again. Drew ended up on crutches and was unable to walk during the group trip. The last time she suffered an Achilles injury was in February 2020 when she tore her right Achilles during a stage play.
It involved three surgeries and a long recovery process. There is some hope that Drew will recover from this other injury. It just make her some time to walk again.
RHOA star deals with health setbacks
During that time, Drew Sidora had her mom staying with her. She was helping out with the kids. At the time, the COVID-19 pandemic reached its peak. Her mom had to stay with her even longer while she was filming RHOA.
In an interview with Decider, Drew admitted that it caused some drama between them. There were moments when she wasn’t afraid of sharing her opinion. Drew also found it hard for her and her husband to get some privacy away from her mom. They left that candid moment on the show.
In 2021, Drew Sidora was hit with another health setback. She revealed that she might need a hysterectomy after her diagnosis with adenomyosis in 2020, which occurs when the tissue that lines the uterus forms along the walls. Drew wanted a second opinion from Dr. Jackie Walters from Married to Medicine.
She didn’t want to undergo another surgery. However, that may be the case with her Achilles tendon. What are your thoughts on Drew Sidora’s injury? Have you gone through something similar? Sound off below in the comment section.
