They have her back. Danielle Busby had a hysterectomy on November 12, and obviously, such a major surgery landed her in the hospital for a bit. When she posted about the surgery on Instagram, a few of her fellow TLC personalities made sure to reach out with well-wishes for the reality TV star.

Audrey Roloff, one of the stars of Little People, Big World, commented on the post, “You are a superwoman,” along with a heart emoji. Fellow TLC star Caryn Chandler — the girlfriend of Matt Roloff, Audrey’s father-in-law — also wrote, “Get better soon.” She must be feeling the love!

Danielle’s husband, Adam Busby, shared with their Instagram followers on November 11, that his wife was in the hospital and asked for “prayers.” But it wasn’t until the next day that the couple shared a video on YouTube explaining why Dani went in for surgery, and she wrote about the experience on Instagram, too.

“I am so proud of my body for being able to actually carry quintuplets but physically, my body after having quintuplets has been going through a lot of on-going pain … for years!” Danielle, 35, shared on Instagram. “This last year it has just gotten so painful and I really needed to stop putting off ‘fixing it.’ The solution to most of my issues was to have a hysterectomy. So today was the day!”

“[We’ve] discovered that, you know, [I] basically [have] PCOS [polycystic ovary syndrome], which is like where cysts keep forming on my ovaries and they keep rupturing, which is just unbearable … So we’re having a hysterectomy today,” the OutDaughtered mom explained in the video. “Polyps have now started to form and grow inside my uterus … I have cysts, I have polyps and I have extreme pain 24/7 with my back and my stomach. So today we’ve been working over the last year to trial-and-error different things, get on birth control, it doesn’t work, it doesn’t help, medication this, and, just, we’ve gotten to the end of the pain and I’m just to the tipping point of, ‘We’re here, we need to take care of it, I’m ready to get this over with.’”

Danielle explained on Instagram that she had dealt with the pain for “three years” and that it made her “completely miserable.” We really hope this procedure means her pain will end and she can get back to the delightful, albeit busy, work of being a mama to six curious little girls!
