LATEST: Country singer and Dancing With The Stars contender Julianne Hough is back on her feet and feeling "phenomenal" after undergoing surgery for endometriosis.
The professional dancer was hospitalised in October (08) after suffering from severe stomach pains. She later announced that doctors had found signs of endometriosis, a common occurrence among women, symptomised by a growth on the uterus.
Hough underwent an almost two-hour-long procedure on 28 October (08) to remove her appendix, a cyst on her ovary, and scar tissue on her bladder and fallopian tubes.
And now her physician, Dr. Randy S. Harris, tells People.com the star "should be able to dance again in about a week. She was exhausted and a little dehydrated, so that's why she needs to get a little more rest."
Hough adds: "(I'm) feeling phenomenal. I am still walking slow but I'm feeling good."
