Carrie Underwood Photographed After Serious Injury Requiring 40 Stitches

In her note, Underwood "spare [s] you the gruesome details", but does share that, when she underwent surgery the night of her November 10 fall, "the doctor told [Underwood's husband] Mike [Fisher] that he had put between 40 and 50 stitches in" (quote via Rare Country).

The 34-year-old Underwood previously said that her wrist had broken in the incident after falling on the steps.

Carrie canceled a benefit show in Nashville after she fell and hasn't appeared in public since.

While fans knew that she had surgery to help fix her broken wrist, Carrie has revealed more about the severity of her accident in a new letter to her fan club members.

But as its new year, Underwood keeps an optimistic vision for what her future.

In a letter sent to her fan club members on Sunday, Underwood revealed that in addition to having surgery on her wrist and undergoing physical therapy, she's been healing from serious facial injuries as well.

"I am determined to make 2018 fantastic and I want to share things with you along the way", Carrie said.

Seven weeks after the accident, Underwood said that she's on the mend but "not quite looking the same". Unfortunately, her face was also injured, and the recovery for that has been "absolutely brutal".

Gang posted a photo of the two to Twitter on December 12, and though Underwood appears to be wearing a brace on her wrist, there was no sign of injury to her face - despite the singer receiving 40 to 50 stitches.

"It's insane how a freak random accident can change your life", she adds. She warned her fans that she might look a little bit different even after she has recovered.

She is however grateful that the injuries were not much worse. "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 did not specify where the stitches are on her face but note that however it heals, she will likely look different next time she's on camera. Share this update with other fans of the Oklahoman.
