AceShowbiz - Martha Stewart has undergone a three-hour operation on her leg.
The 79-year-old lifestyle guru has been ordered to put her feet up and rest for the next two weeks and will still have limited mobility for weeks afterwards after she underwent a surgical procedure to repair a damaged Achilles.
Martha shared a photo of her left leg heavily bandaged and wrote on Instagram, "Not the prettiest photo nor the happiest back story. Bad timing all around. Ruptured my Achilles' tendon a while ago."
"Tried to get it to heal on its own to no avail. The great @drjohnkennedy @nyulangone performed a three hour operation yesterday to repair the damage."
"Recuperating at home I have been ordered to lay still with leg elevated for two weeks. After that another two to four weeks of crutches. Then maybe some more normal activity."
The chef explained how her injury had been the result of an accident in the dark.
"Most such ruptures occur when dancing or playing sports," she continued. "Mine was caused by a surprise step into a hole in the dark getting out of the car. Thank you NYU for attempting to make me whole again."
Drew Barrymore and Ellen Pompeo were among the stars sending Martha well-wishes in the comments on the post.
