Could a rupture from a 20-year-old implant be the cause of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Yolanda Foster's chronic health issues?

This could certainly be the case according to Yolanda herself, as she Instagrammed an important discovery on Friday regarding her health.

"Turn a mess into a message....... We might have hit the jackpot by finding all this silicone from a 20 year old implant rupture through ultrasound mapping as shown in this selfie," she wrote. "Thank you Dr.Feng for holding my hand and leading the way #UncoveringTheMystery #ChronicLymeDisease #ExPlantSurgery @FengClinic #MyHealthJourney #DeterminedToFindACure."

One week ago, Yolanda also Instagrammed a picture of herself reading Dr. Susan E. Kolb's book, The Naked Truth About Breast Implants: From Harm to Healing. The book discusses silicone, chemical, and biotoxicity problems caused by breast implants.

The 51-year-old reality star was diagnosed with Lyme disease in 2012, and has been open about her health struggles with her fans in the past. In January, she revealed that she's "lost the ability to read, write, or even watch TV" in a blog post for "It feels like someone came in and confiscated my brain and tied my hands behind my back to just watch and see life go by without me participating in it," she wrote.

Previously, the mother-of-three had never discussed having breast implants. But she definitely hinted that she'll be removing them in her latest Instagram, hashtagging the post, "ExPlantSurgery."

Last week, Yolanda spent time with her children -- models Gigi and Bella, as well as their brother Anwar -- sporting a matching plunging red swimsuit with 18-year-old Bella. "My loves, My life, my reason for living," she wrote about a selfie of the three of them together.
