‘Sister Wives’: Why Won’t Kody Brown Be At His Daughter Ysabel’s Lengthy Surgery?

Sister Wives spoilers reveal that Kody Brown‘s daughter, Ysabel Brown, will undergo major, 12-hour surgery this month. Unfortunately, her father will not be present for her at that time. Luckily, however, Ysabel’s mother, Christine Brown, and two of her sisters, Gwendlyn Brown and Truely Brown, will be with Ysabel while she faces the daunting surgery. They will also be with her afterward.

Why won’t Kody, a father of 18 kids, be at Ysabel Brown’s significant medical event?

Sister Wives star Ysabel Brown has been diagnosed with scoliosis

Ysabel Brown’s scoliosis diagnosis became widely known in 2017 although the Sister Wives star had been managing her condition for years prior. Ysabel’s condition entails a sideways curvature of the spine. This condition most commonly occurs during a childhood growth spurt and Ysabel was diagnosed around age 12.

After her diagnosis, her family tried a range of medical protocols in an effort to avoid having her undergo major surgery. For instance, she wore a night brace in a bid to halt the curvature. When that didn’t work she began to wear the brace in the daytime as well. Unfortunately, that intervention did not work.

As a result, Kody Brown became insistent about surgery even though it meant the family would have to pay around $50,000 out of pocket for the surgery. However, there are no other options at this time and so Ysabel will have the lengthy scoliosis surgery in order to correct her spine.

Why isn’t Kody Brown attending Ysabel’s surgery?

The surgery takes place later this month in New Jersey. The family is in New Jersey now in order to observe that state’s mandate to self-quarantine for 14 days upon arrival prior to the procedure.

During one of her live LuLaRoe sales events, Mykelti Brown Padron spilled that Kody would not be present at the surgery. Why? Because the family decided the best thing he could do for the family would be to remain at home for the sake of the rest of the family since he would have to quarantine 14 days before and 14 days after the surgery before he could go home.


Thus the family decided it would be best not to have him absent for a month. Ysabel seems to understand this and she will have her mom and two sisters with her while her other siblings can be taken care of by their dad.
