As previously reported, the Real Housewives of Atlanta alum scheduled the operation after suffering a mini stroke last month. Doctors discovered that she had a heart condition while treating her.

“It was a blessing in disguise,” Zolciak told Good Morning America on Oct. 9. “The minor TIA revealed that I have a PFO, which is like a hole in your heart. I was born with it and it never closed. That’s what caused it, basically.”
