Former Miss South African and Miss World 2014 Rolene Strauss says she is "feeling much better" after being admitted to hospital on Sunday.

Rolene spent two nights in the hospital and was discharged on Tuesday. 

On Instagram Live on Tuesday, Rolene thanked her followers for their well wishes and prayers.

About the ordeal, she said: "On Sunday afternoon, I started feeling really bad, with tremendous amounts of abdominal pain. I tried to do everything at home I could, but nothing really worked. 

"In the evening, I told D'Niel, 'No, I think something is really wrong. I think we should go to hospital.'" 

Rolene explained that she was concerned that the pain was caused by appendicitis, but tests ruled it out. 

"I still had immense pain. I couldn't walk, I couldn't do anything," she said. 

"They think they found a cause. I do have medication. I'm at home now, and they think treating it conservatively with the medication at home will work," she said, giving her followers an update on her condition. 

Rolene said that the experience taught her that she is not invincible. "I always think that nothing will happen to me. And I think it just forced me to reconsider my prioritisations or my priorities and to take things a bit easier," she explained. 

"Life has been hectic the last couple of weeks, actually couple of months. But if there is one thing I would like you to also consider is just think about your health and your wellbeing even though you are trying to make a living - even though you are trying to just survive and get to do everything that you want to do. Think about yourself, your family and about your health," she urged her followers.
