Get well soon, Maksim Chmerkovskiy!
The 37-year-old Dancing With the Stars pro took to Instagram on Wednesday, March 29 to share a photo of himself in his hospital bed just before undergoing surgery to repair his recent calf injury.
"Gettin' unbroken…" Maks captioned the selfie. "I hope you have a speedy recovery — can't wait to see back on the dance floor," one of the TV star's 697,000 followers commented on the pic with another adding, "Prayers for a smooth and quick recovery!"
The dancer previously suffered his calf injury during DWTS rehearsals earlier this week.
"It's my calf muscle. F—k. It just feels like something hit it," Maksim said in rehearsal footage shown on the Monday, March 27 DWTS episode. During week two of the reality dance competition, Maksim's celebrity partner, Glee star Heather Morris, performed with troupe dancer Alan Bersten.
Days ago, Maks thanked fans for their well wishes and sadly revealed he does not yet know when he'll be able to return to Dancing With the Stars. "Thank you all for so much love and support! And for having Heather's back with all your votes," he wrote on Instagram.
"I'm also very excited about her and Alan's Tango next week. Please rest assured that I'm taking this [injury] very seriously and, although I don't have a concrete return date, I'll give it my all!" Maks added.
