After years of physical and mental exhaustion, Caitlyn Jenner has undergone a knee replacement after her 25 year old knees gave out. The surgery is the first step in what will hopefully be a long road to recovery for the reality TV star.
Caitlyn Jenner has had to have a knee replacement surgery after 25 years of competing in the Olympics. She is expected to make a full recovery and be back on the track for 2021.
Caitlyn Jenner has announced that she has had a knee replacement, something she had been putting off for more than two decades.
The reality actress posted a video on Instagram on Christmas Eve revealing that she underwent the surgery over a week ago.
The 72-year-old videotaped herself in scrubs laying down on a hospital bed, rotating the camera to her leg to display the marking ink placed to her knee before to surgery.
‘Okay! Can you guess what I’m up to today? ‘Yes, my knee is being replaced,’ she remarked in the video.
‘I’ve been putting this off for 25 years, and today will be the day!’ I’ll do my best to keep you informed along the road.’
Caitlyn disclosed in the caption that the replacement took place 11 days ago.

‘Happy Holidays! I received a new knee this year. ‘I underwent knee replacement surgery 11 days ago,’ she added.
‘I’ll let you know how I’m doing!’ Keep an eye out for updates. Have a wonderful Christmas! ‘Have a healthy and happy life.’
Several users wished the media star well, with one saying, ‘I hope you recover quickly, take good care of yourself.’
‘Wishing you luck.’ I hope everything goes well. ‘Happy Holidays,’ It was written by someone else.
Given Caitlyn’s admission that the knee replacement should have been done 25 years ago, one would conclude that her athletic career was to blame.
Her ‘excruciating’ discomfort, she told TMZ, was caused by the Olympics training she conducted in 1976.

In 1972, the former Olympian competed in her first Olympics, which were held in Munich.
She won gold in the Decathlon in the 1976 Olympic Games in Montreal, and she had previously won gold at the Pan American Games the year before.
Untold, a Netflix docu-series, premiered earlier this year, with one of the episodes concentrating on Caitlyn’s career.
Kim Kardashian, Caitlyn’s stepdaughter, said on Instagram that she was watching it, tagging Caitlyn and commenting, ‘Wait this doc however…’
In the aftermath of her split from Kanye West, Kim has been making headlines for her alleged relationship with Saturday Night Live actor Pete Davidson.
Despite curiosity regarding the couple’s supposed Christmas plans, it was discovered that Pete has yet to meet Kim’s children.
