Jackie ‘O’ Henderson was rushed to the emergency room after feeling unwell halfway through her KIIS FM radio show on Tuesday.
Her co-host Kyle Sandilands told listeners Jackie, 48, left the studios to get medical attention after experiencing tingling down her arm, which can be a symptom of a heart attack.
The mother-of-one had undergone a procedure to remove a uterine polyp – a growth attached to her uterus – the day before.
Kyle and Jackie were preparing to interview Angela Bishop when she started experiencing symptoms.
‘She just stepped out for a lay down. She’s got like a corset dress on and she had an operation yesterday,’ Kyle explained.

‘She also didn’t sleep much because of Intern Pete’s melatonin tablets that kept her up and then she’s been on the Red Bulls this morning.’
Kyle then said Jackie was leaving the show to visit the hospital.
Earlier in the show, Jackie had revealed she had visited her gynaecologist for a procedure on Monday.
John Laws, who was set to appear on the radio show, wasn’t impressed with Jackie discussing her surgery on-air and hung up just moments before his interview.
‘Yesterday I had an operation and was under general anaesthetic so I couldn’t sleep during the night,’ Jackie explained.
‘I had a uterine polyp removed. The doctor said it would make my periods more regular.’

Jackie then went on to say: ‘I thought “what do I look like on the operating table, nude and wearing a shower cap”.’
‘Don’t tell me gynaecologists aren’t going “she’s hot and I get to see her vagina in five minutes”.’
During the discussion, a producer interrupted her and revealed John had hung up because he was offended by Jackie’s story.
‘John Laws was ready to go because he was coming on the show next but he was offended by Jackie’s vagina conversation and doesn’t want to come on,’ the producer told the pair.

A shocked Jackie said: ‘How can he be offended, it’s an operation.’
Kyle and Jackie then called Laws and he said: ‘I’m not interested, it’s the way you talk talk about the medical procedure,’ before hanging up again.
Uterine polyps are growths attached to the inner wall of the uterus that expand into the uterus, according to Mayo Clinic.
The polyps are usually non-cancerous, although some can be cancerous or can turn into cancer.
