Lindsey Vonn, a former World Cup alpine ski racer, has been recovering from another knee surgery.

The 37-year-old was “having a hard time with the pain” in her knee after developing bone spurs and scar tissue from years of skiing and injuries

The four-time Olympian made a video recap of her latest knee surgery, revealing how she went from her hospital bed to the operation room and then on to rehab.

She said the surgery “went well” and explained that the procedure was necessary because she struggled with ongoing issues since her 2019 surgery to repair her torn lateral collateral ligament (LCL).

Vonn said, “Been having a hard time with the pain in my knee. You may have noticed I haven’t been posting many workout videos lately… that’s why. Dr. Hackett did a great job and removed a lot of bone spurs and scar tissue. Hopefully now I can straighten my leg fully!”

She went on to say the surgery is just a temporary fix and she will likely have to undergo a full knee replacement in a year or two.

“This is my last step before getting a knee replacement… hoping this will hold me over for a year or two until I get the big surgery,” Vonn said. “Ahhh the price we pay to do what we love. Still worth it though.”

She retired from the sport in February 2019 and since then, she has been working out intensely with trainer Harley Pasternak, promising her fans that she would be back at it again soon.

Vonn said, “Thanks to everyone for the well wishes. Means a lot. See you on the mat and the slopes soon!”

She had to retire sooner than she had hoped to due to her knee problems.

She wrote in February 2019, “Despite extensive therapy, training and a knee brace, I am not able make the turns necessary to compete the way I know I can.”

“My body is broken beyond repair and it isn’t letting me have the final season I dreamed of,” she added. “My body is screaming at me to STOP and it’s time for me to listen.”
