“So there’s a little bit of a tear on my meniscus and then there’s also a little cartilage flap behind my knee but they’re very minor so instead of an op I got a knee injection so that’s good news.

“I mean, I am terrified of injections and needles. I hate needles so I’m glad that it happened already.”

Since then, Karen has continued to update fans on her recovery process.
