One day after having to bow out of competing on the seventh season of Dancing With the Stars, Misty May-Treanor had surgery Tuesday morning to repair a torn Achilles tendon.
Her rep tells PEOPLE the surgery was “successful” and that “she is currently at home recovering. Her husband, Matt Treanor is with her.”
Doctors estimate it will take approximately nine months of recovery and rehabilitation before May-Treanor can return to the volleyball court.
“I would come back to the ballroom if they asked me back,” May-Treanor said on Monday’s DWTS broadcast. — Monica RizzoCraig Sjodin/ABC
