A lot happened on the Alaskan Bush People Season 14 premiere. The episode started three weeks after Bear Brown married Raiven, and the family was working on some big changes. While Bam Bam and Gabe Brown worked on rebuilding their ranch, two of the Brown siblings considered returning to Alaska, including Bird Brown.
Noah Brown wanted to move his wife and son to Alaska, and find their own home in the bush like his dad did so many years ago. Meanwhile, Bird wanted to find herself, as she still hadn’t recovered from her dad’s passing. With that said, Ami Brown gave Bird a letter and said she wanted her to open it in Alaska, so she planned to leave with Noah. Things changed quickly.
Bird Brown has a serious medical condition on Alaskan Bush People
Right after Rain and Bird Brown made plans for their trip to Alaska with Noah and his family, the show quickly switched focus. Bird suffered a serious medical condition. On-screen text revealed, “For the past week, Bird has experienced severe abdominal pain. It is now unbearable”
This led to Bird saying that she didn’t want to go to the doctor and asking her sister and the camera crew to give her some time. Bird then admitted in a confessional that the pain got so bad, she was on the floor. Bird said she didn’t want to go to the doctor because they would want to draw blood and run tests. However, Rain said it didn’t matter what she wanted. Rain said she had to force her sister to go to the doctor.
What happened to Bird Brown on Alaskan Bush People?
Things got bad because Bird realized she needed surgery. This was something that she never wanted to even consider, with her fear of hospitals and doctors. She got the phone call about it and was in tears as she talked to the doctors. It was worse than anyone could have expected.
Bird Brown had a very large cystic tumor taking up her entire abdomen. There was also fluid all around it. There was also another hard mass pushing on her bladder. To make it worse, it was coming from her ovaries. She said they won’t know much more until the biopsy, but she had to have surgery as soon as possible. She said it also looked like cancer, from what the doctors could see.
Bird took this hard, because she said she felt she was supposed to be the strong one. With her fear about the cancer, she also couldn’t stop crying because it also put the Alaskan trip on hold. Bam said his mind always goes to the worse case scenarios, and he clearly took it hard. Gabe said that not knowing what was wrong was the hardest. Noah took it really hard since he grew up close to Bird, and he said he wouldn’t go back to Alaska without her.
As for the surgery, camera crews remained absent because of COVID-19 protocols, but Ami and Rain stayed with her, and it was those two who documented the hospital scenes using the video on their phones. This was tough for Ami as well, as she battled cancer herself, but she beat it and believed her daughter could as well.
The surgery went well, but Rain said it would be a long, tough recovery. She had two tumors on her ovaries, one weighing eight pounds and one weighing four pounds. They were pushing on everything. They removed the tumors but left the uterus and ovaries to give her a chance to have a baby in the future.
The doctor told her it wasn’t definitely cancer, but it has a higher than 50 percent chance of returning as a tumor or cancer in the future. However, the one way to make the chances of it not returning as cancer is through a full hysterectomy, ending any chance she has of having children in the future.
