Katie Price reportedly fears she will lose a leg during her upcoming feet operation.
The mum-of-five, 42, has broken both of her feet during a freak accident in Turkey.
After flying back to the UK to receive medical treatment, doctors have reportedly warned her of worst case scenarios.
Why does Katie Price need an operation?
A source told The Sun: “Katie’s doctors have warned her she must take her recovery seriously and it’s left her terrified.
“She’s prone to getting infections after operations, and her surgeon says she could lose a leg if her feet get infected.
Katie’s doctors have warned her she must take her recovery seriously.
“She’ll have to be so, so careful – she’ll have medical professionals on call 24/7 – and change the dressings regularly.”
Katie Price’s rep has confirmed to Entertainment Daily that Katie was issued the above warnings.
Her representative said: “Katie has been advised prior to her surgical procedure of the risks attached, Katie is in the very best of expert hands and risk is minimal.”
Katie explained how she broke her feet during one of her YouTube videos.
Addressing her subscribers, she said: “Silly little accident. I was running, jumped over a wall because it was a little shortcut.
“And I didn’t really judge the height. I fell funny on my ankles.
“I fractured the hairline in my heels and stuff.”
What happened to her feet?
Since then she’s been shown zipping about in a mobility scooter.
She has also shared how she must now crawl across the floor in knee pads to get around her house.
Some fans speculated whether her injuries are as serious as she claimed.
However, Katie vehemently hit back at the naysayers.
In view of her some 2.3 million Instagram followers, she shared a video of one of her cast’s getting bedazzled.
She said: “Look at the glitter on that foot! The foot that no one believes is broken!”
She went on to write: “My new colourful casts.
“Despite people not believing I’ve really broken my feet.
“I really have life changing injuries.”
She also denied rumours that she had actually received bunion removal surgery in Turkey.
Speaking on daughter Princess Andre’s Instagram account, she said to her some 239,000 followers:
“By the way, someone said on my Instagram: ‘Oh she has had bunions done on both feet!’
“Well, when I have the X-rays and show you, I haven’t had bunions, I have never had bunions in my life.”
