CARRIE UNDERWOOD: “DOCTOR PUT 40 TO 50 STITCHES IN MY FACE”

Posted on

Carrie Underwood revealed on her official fan club website Monday (Jan 1st) that she needed more than 40 stitches in her face following a hard fall in November at her Nashville home.

The fall forced Carrie to cancel her appearance at the Country Rising benefit. Reports at the time were that she suffered a broken wrist and cuts, but the true extent of the injuries was kept quiet.

“In addition to breaking my wrist, I somehow managed to injure my face as well,” Carrie wrote in her blog post. “I’ll spare you the gruesome details, but when I came out of surgery the night of my fall, the doctor told Mike (Fisher, Underwood’s husband) that he had put between 40 and 50 stitches in.”

“When I am ready to get in front of a camera, I want you all to understand why I might look a bit different,” she writes. “I’m hoping that, by then, the differences are minimal, but, again, I just don’t know how it’s all going to end up.”

Last week, Carrie posted an Instagram photo of herself, with her face almost completely covered by a scarf.
