Carrie Underwood revealed to her fan club on Monday that she's still recovering from needing 40 to 50 stitches on her face after a November fall.
Underwood took a hard fall Nov. 10 on the steps outside her home near Nashville. She was treated for a broken wrist and cuts, forcing her to pull out of the Country Rising benefit concert two days later, but the singer had not revealed the extent of her injuries until now.
"In addition to breaking my wrist, I somehow managed to injure my face as well. 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," she wrote in a year-end message to her fans.
The singer said she is healing, but "not quite looking the same."
"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."
Underwood posted a photo of herself to Instagram last week with her face almost entirely covered by a scarf.
