New Photos Carrie Underwood May Look 'A Bit Different' After Injury

Carrie Underwood suffered multiple injuries after falling down the stairs at her home and her recovery has caused her to look a bit different than before.

In November the country singer took a fall that landed her in the hospital.

Initially, Underwood said she broke her wrist and needed surgery on it, but more recent reports have uncovered that she had more than just an injured wrist.



“There is also another part of the story that I haven’t been ready to talk about since I have still been living it and there has been much uncertainty as to how things will end up,” Underwood wrote in a note obtained by PEOPLE. “It’s crazy how a freak random accident can change your life. In addition to breaking my wrist, I somehow managed to injure my face as well."

The CMA host wrote that she needed 40-50 stitches on her face and it has altered her look a little.

I’ll spare you the gruesome details, but when I came out of surgery the night of my fall, the doctor told Mike that he had put between 40-50 stitches in,” she wrote to a fan club page, referring to her hubby Mike Fisher, who she married in 2010. “Now here we are 7 weeks later and, even though I’ve had the best people helping me, I’m still healing and not looking quite the same.”


She emphasizes that she may not look exactly how she did before, but Below Deck alum Adrienne Gang said she didn't even notice when she ran into Underwood mid-December. Gang tweeted the first photo taken of Underwood since the accident, saying she wasn't aware the singer was injured.

“I honestly don’t know how things are going to end up but I do know this: I am grateful,” Underwood wrote to fans. “I am grateful that it wasn't much, much worse. And I am grateful for the people in my life that have been there every step of the way."

She tweeted about how thankful she was for her friends, family, and medical staff who helped her recover, and joked that she would be setting off metal detectors from now on.

Though Underwood has still been keeping up with her social media accounts, she has only been posting photos of herself pre-accident plus one with a scarf covering most of her face.



She said isn't quite ready to be in the spotlight yet, but will be back in the recording studio next week to work on some new music. She is also due to perform in April at the Academy of Country Music Awards.

"When I am ready to get in front of a camera, I want you all to understand why I might look a bit different," Underwood told fans in her post. "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."
