Yolanda Hadid undergoes surgery

Yolanda Hadid has undergone surgery to help alleviate her Lyme disease symptoms.

The 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' star has had transvascular autonomic modulation surgery, which helps to reduce fatigue by helping stimulate nerve fibres.

She wrote on Instagram: "I am seeking, I am striving and I am in it to win it with all of my heart............ #LymeDiseaseAwareness #TvamSurgery #LastChapter #SearchingForACure #RemissionInSight (sic)"

Meanwhile, the 52-year-old television personality - who has Gigi, 21, Bella, 19, and Anwar, 17, with her ex-husband Mohamed Hadid - previously admitted she "didn't want to live anymore" after being diagnosed with Lyme disease.

She said: "My children [are] what kept me alive. I remember just waiting for them to get out of school, just to give them a hug and look at them for hope. They're the ones that kept me fighting and wanting to live. There were many days that I really didn't want to live anymore. But when you look at your children, it's not a choice anymore. You have to get through, you have to keep fighting and searching to get well."

And Yolanda believes her children Anwar and Bella have been forced to grow up too soon because of their Lyme disease diagnosis.

She added: "It made them grow up all of a sudden, a lot faster. There were nights where Gigi, at three o'clock in the morning, had to drive me to the emergency room because I had such severe inflammation in my brain that I'd be balling on the floor like, 'Please take me to the hospital!' So you know, and not just Gigi driving, Anwar and Bella in the back of the car and the three of us going to the hospital. They learned to take charge and ... be my strength."
