Carrie Underwood Shares Update After Undergoing Surgery

Last week, after wrapping up her duties as the co-host of the CMA Awards, country superstar Carrie Underwood had a nasty fall just outside her home.

A rep for the singer revealed that Underwood hurt herself "on some steps outside her home" on Friday night, and was immediately transported to the hospital. She did not sustain any life-threatening injuries, but was said to be treated for multiple serious injuries.

These injuries included a broken wrist, as well as some cuts and abrasions. Her rep also confirmed that Underwood's husband, retired NHL player Mike Fisher, traveled to Nashville to be by her side following her hospitalization.

Underwood was discharged from the hospital later that night, and a few days later she sent out a Tweet reassuring fans that she is doing fine, and thank them for their well wishes.

"I'll be alright...might just take some time...glad I've got the best hubby in the world to take care of me," wrote Underwood on Sunday.

Now, a week after the mishap, Underwood has revealed that she underwent surgery to fix the broken wrist. She once again took to twitter to update fans on her condition.

The "Before He Cheats" singer's wrist was operated on a few days ago, forcing her to cancel her upcoming appearance at the Country Rising benefit show in Nashville to raise funds for the victims of the Las Vegas shooting and the hurricanes in Florida, Texas, Puerto Rico and the Caribbean.

Underwood once again sent out a Tweet, this time letting her sense of humor through, to "let everyone know that I'm doing great."

"Had surgery on my wrist yesterday & all went well...even though I'll be setting off airport metal detectors from now on," she tweeted on Wednesday. "I'm so thankful for the doctors, nurses, family & friends who've been taking such great care of me."

Underwood is expecting to recover just in time for her holiday show at the Grande Ole Opry when the program moves to the Ryman Auditorium next month.

In the meantime, not only does she have the support of her husband and family, her fans are also rallying behind her.

We're wishing her a speedy recovery!
