Caitlyn JennerHer days as an Olympic star have recognized her in a painful way — in the form of knee replacement surgery.
Sources with direct knowledge of TMZ say… The decathlon gold medalist went under the knife at Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles on Dec. 14. We were told the surgery lasted 3 hours and so far, very well.
The before and after x-ray images largely tell the story.
Kaitlyn gets up and walks around again…she walks very carefully around her compound in Malibu, where she will be staying for at least another week before heading out.
Her goal was at the beginning of 2022…to walk normally, to drive, and to get back to all the things she loves…including golf. She loves to ski – something that was off the table before surgery – but her goal is to hit the slopes next winter.
The truth is…she’s been in need of a knee replacement for a while – 25 years to be exact. We’ve been told the pain was excruciating at times and Kaitlyn knows it stems from her 76 games training.
