Carrie Underwood’s Broken Wrist Is ‘Good to Go’
Carrie Underwood's wrist is as good as new after her November fall -- but she's got some serious metal in it now! The country superstar shared on social media an X-ray photo to celebrate her final checkup on her broken bone.
On Friday morning (Jan. 19), Underwood posted the above photo, an X-ray of her right wrist that shows a piece of metal that was inserted when she had surgery to fix her break. Underwood broke her wrist when she fell outside her Nashville-area home.
"I'm good to go!" Underwood writes in the caption of her Instagram photo. She also thanks her doctor, Dr. Wurth, and her "PT angel, Renee" (also known as "Bulldog") for helping her heal.
According to the initial report about her fall, Underwood was left with a broken wrist and some cuts and abrasions. She was treated at a nearby hospital and released; her husband returned to Nashville overnight to be by her side. However, a few days later, Underwood shared that she had undergone the surgery to help fix her broken wrist, and in a letter to members of her fan club, the singer also notes that she was undergoing physical therapy to help heal that injury, and that she needed "between 40 and 50 stitches" on her face.
"It’s crazy how a freak random accident can change your life," Underwood says. "Even though I’ve had the best people helping me, I’m still healing and not quite looking the same. I honestly don’t know how things are going to end up but I do know this: I am grateful. I am grateful that it wasn’t much, much worse."
Underwood has not revealed exactly how she fell or the specific details surrounding the incident.
