Jenelle Evans Shares Bikini Picture After Concerning TikTok
On Thursday, the MTV star posted three photos from her time at the Playa Largo Resort in Key Largo, Florida, alongside the caption, “One of the coolest beaches I’ve ever been to! 😍🌊🌴.” She included the hashtag “take me back.”
Evans’s post came two days after she shared a concerning post on her TikTok on April 18. Earlier in the day on Tuesday, she took to her Instagram Story to tell fans she was going to the doctor to get a procedure done on her esophagus. She noted she was “going alone” to the appointment but did not share why her husband, David Eason, was not attending.
After the procedure, Evans posted a TikTok in which she had a medical tube connected to her nose. In the video, the “16 and Pregnant” alum mouthed along to a soundbite from the television show “Bob’s Burgers” that said, “I am this close to falling off the deep end. I know I’m smiling right now but the light inside of me is dying.”
“And that [is] on health problems,” she wrote in the caption.
Evans’s April 18 TikTok had fans concerned. Evans’s followers rushed to the comment section for answers.
“What’s wrong?” one fan asked.
“Honey are you okay? Sending my love! 🥺,” a second user wrote.
Jenelle Evans Shares Health Update With Fans
Evans addressed fans’ concerns in a follow-up TikTok that same day. She made a video in response to a fan comment that read, “Okay but..what did I miss [?]”
“Remember when I was having lung issues and I told you guys, ‘Make sure you get your lungs checked,'” she began.
“I had a bronchoscopy [back in November], where they stick a camera down your throat into your lungs,” she told fans. “They saw I have a spot in my right lung…[it is] caused [because] of vaping but I don’t vape. [I] never vaped in my life.”
“So, they’re trying to figure out why I’m aspirating into my lungs,” she added.
According to WebMD, aspiration is when something you swallow ‘goes down the wrong way’ and enters your airway or lungs.
Evans told fans she is undergoing tests to see if she has acid reflux that could be causing the spot in her right lung.
The North Carolina native answered follow-up questions about her current health issues in the comment section.
“Does this spot on [your] lungs hurt?” one fan asked to which Evans replied, “Yes.”
Another fan asked if smoking marijuana could have caused the spot. Evans replied to the fan saying she asked her doctor if that could be the cause after her bronchoscopy but clarified that the issue is “not caused from smoking at all.”
Evans shared an update with fans on her April 19 Instagram Story, telling fans she was returning to the doctor to get the tube removed.
“Going to get this thing out, 👏🏼😫😔,” she wrote on her Story.
