Birdie gave a medical update on the season finale of Alaskan Bush People. Fans of the show watched the 27-year-old learn she had two tumors and doctors needed to remove them. She then had to make a life-altering decision after the surgery.
Here is what Birdie Brown told fans on the finale of her reality show and what her future might hold.
Birdie Brown had a tough medical choice to make on Alaskan Bush People
When this season of Alaskan Bush People began, one of the biggest stories involved Birdie Brown. She opened up early about not getting over her dad, Billy’s death. She wanted desperately to find something from him to help her find direction in her life. Her mother, Ami, wrote her a letter from her and Billy. However, she told Birdie she had to return to Alaska to open it.
That all ended up playing secondary to what happened next. One day Birdie admitted to Rain she had been experiencing abdominal pain. She could barely walk and had refused to see a doctor about it. Later, she said she didn’t want to get bad news and that caused her to avoid the doctor. That almost cost Birdie her life.
Birdie had two tumors, and she had to have them surgically removed. This caused Noah to delay his Alaska trip to wait for her. When she got out of surgery, the doctor explained that they removed the tumors and there was no cancer. However, she had to decide. She could have a full hysterectomy and eliminate the chance of cancer. However, this would mean never having children. While in Alaska, Birdie said she chose the possibility of children.
Birdie reveals her follow-up with the doctor
Birdie went back for a checkup in the Alaskan Bush People finale. It was here that the doctor asked what she had decided. Birdie said that she wanted to have kids one day and would risk cancer to accomplish this dream. She then told her mom and sister about her decision. Ami, who beat cancer herself, said that they would follow God and whatever happened came from him.
While people online have mentioned freezing her eggs, Birdie wants to have kids naturally. There is one problem. She also said in the episode that she isn’t in a hurry to meet anyone and hopes to one day stumble upon the perfect guy. She also said that when her family tries to get her to meet guys, she shuts down and refuses.
Whatever happens, Birdie said she would risk cancer and trust God to allow her to have kids. Whether she eventually meets that special someone and has children remains to be seen. However, she said risking cancer to accomplish this dream is worth it.
