Lisa Curry has updated fans on her progress after undergoing hip surgery following a freak accident in Yukon, Canada.

The Olympian, 61, injured herself last January while husky dog sledding. She slipped on the ice which caused her to fall and break her hip.

Lisa said she is ‘learning to walk again’ and ‘doing simple tasks’ as she recovers from the surgery.

‘Each day it’s getting better and I’m now able to exercise and swim again so I’m happy about that,’ she said.

‘I’m learning how to walk without a limp and doing simple tasks again.’

Lisa Curry revealed she is ‘learning how to walk again’ as she gave fans an update after hip surgery following freak accident

Last week, Lisa explained the incident happened during her holiday in January.

‘The husky’s went across the ice no problem but the sled slid, and kept sliding,’ she said.

She went on to say the sled dogs will ‘keep going’ if you let go of the ropes.

‘You can’t let go of the sled because the dogs will keep going,’ she said. 

‘So I held on and held on until I couldn’t and eventually fell still holding onto the sled which immediately puts the brakes on, so the dogs stop … and fell on my hip.’ 

Lisa added that her hip had been sore all year, but she initially thought it was muscular.

It was only after a CT scan she saw her hip had fractured bone in the ball and socket joint.

‘Each day it’s getting better and I’m now able to exercise and swim again so I’m happy about that. I’m learning how to walk without a limp and doing simple tasks again,’ she said 

Lisa’s fans wished the former Olympian a speedy recovery. 

‘Speedy recovery legend,’ one fan wrote. 

‘Oh Lisa, what an adventure that was for you. Sending you healing vibes, dad just had a hip replacement two weeks ago, watching his recovery has been so good to see, finally out of the pain he was in. Lots of love to you,’ another wrote. 

‘Speedy recovery to you Lisa. Sending you well wishes,’ yet another wrote.
