AceShowbiz - Caitlyn Jenner is offering her fans and followers an update on her health condition. The former star of "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" revealed that she's enjoying a "quiet" Christmas holiday amid knee replacement recovery.
On Saturday, December 25, the retired Olympic gold medallist took to her Instagram account to share a clip of her Christmas Eve. Along with a video that saw a table full of Christmas dinner and a Christmas tree at her home, the 72-year-old wrote, "Quiet Christmas Eve at home with Sophia healing from knee surgery! Gorgeous dinner and platters tonight!"
A few hours earlier, Caitlyn unveiled that she checked herself into a hospital earlier this month to undergo a knee replacement surgery. "Merry Christmas! This year I got a new knee. 11 days ago I had knee replacement surgery," she captioned a video of her in her hospital bed.
"I'll keep you posted on my progress! Stay tuned. Enjoy your Christmas! Stay healthy and happy," Caitlyn added. In the 23-second clip, the former "I Am Cait" star said that the medical procedure was long overdue, "Yes, I'm getting my knee replaced. I've been putting this off for 25 years, and I'm finally going to do it today!"
Caitlyn once played college football for the Graceland Yellowjackets, but she quit due to a recurring knee injury. She then switched to the decathlon. In a docu-series earlier this year, she talked about struggling with her identity during her sports career. "I spent my entire life hiding," she explained. "I didn't want people to know me, and know who I was."
"I was an Olympic Champion, the greatest athlete in the world," Caitlyn added. The reality star continued, "But I was still the same old person with all the same old issues." Despite being a trans woman herself, she was against trans females competing in women's sport. "I oppose biological boys who are trans competing in girls' sports in school. It just isn't fair, and we have to protect girls' sports in our schools," she insisted.
