Brooke Burke Is Out of Thyroid Surgery, Tweets Health Updates

She’s out! Dancing With the Stars co-host Brooke Burke-Charvet is doing well after her successful thyroid surgery — except for the part where she feels like she got hit by a car.

Brooke revealed her thyroid cancer diagnosis in early November, noting that she’d need a thyroidectomy, giving her a little scar across her neck. Last night, she tweeted a last look at her neck without a scar.

Earlier today (Thursday, December 6), she tweeted, "I'm resting, recovering. Surgery went well. Dr Adashek is a genius. Thx Dr! Feels like I got hit my a car :(" An hour later, she added, "Thank God it's over. I'm clean, surgery went well & I can talk. Losing My voice was my biggest fear. Thx for all your prayers & light." After that, she shared a shot of herself flipping cancer the bird, writing, “made it through my surgery, Thank God! so far so good F#@k Cancer! I'm recovering, I'm strong, I'm grateful for my brilliant Doctors.” 

Badass Brooke! We knew she'd be OK. Not that the battle is over. On ModernMom.com, Brooke blogged about how her family — her husband, David, and four children — have been dealing with the news. She ended her blog with this paragraph: 

"I've really realized that everything I'm going through, my family is going through too. I think I'm as concerned for my husband as he is for me — he's been so strong and such a rock. He's trying not to show any of his fears and concerns so that he can be strong for me. But we've had our moments and I think it's so, so important that you care for everyone in a family that's dealing with a medical crisis the same way you emotionally care for the patient themselves. Because we're all in this together."


We're all with you, Brooke!
