Dancing with the Stars‘s typically upbeat host Brooke Burke-Charvet was back in serious mode after the show’s finale last week.

Prepping for her thyroidectomy, she wrote on her Facebook page Monday, “I’m getting ready this week for my surgery and am planning on a speedy recovery What a crazy time, but I am surrounded with love and support and that really makes a world of difference.”

The TV personality, 41 – who plans to keep fans updated on her post-surgery progress via videos on the ModernMom website – says she’s “touched and appreciative to [supporters] for sharing your positive wishes for my surgery and for sharing many of your personal thyroid experiences.”

Burke-Charvet first announced news of her thyroid cancer scare on Nov. 8, explaining in a video, “I’m going to have a nice big scar right here across my neck. I don’t get to just walk around and pretend like nothing happened or not follow up or not share it, because it’s going to be pretty much dead center. I don’t want anybody to read about it and get the wrong idea, or think that I’m sick, because I’m not.”
