Ashley Judd is recovering.
On Monday, the actress took to Instagram and detailed her “hard 55-hour” rescue operation after her leg was broken.
The 52-year-old man broke free from the jungles of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and tripped a fallen tree there. Judd was sent to Xiangyangshan Hospital in Johannesburg, South Africa for surgery.
Yahoo! Entertainment previously reported that the “double danger” actress travels to Congo twice a year because her “life partner” runs a research camp there. In the United States, she is famous for outdoor camping.

Judd wrote: “I came there from the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The situation is very bad. I don’t have a pulse in my leg.” “I really need a blood transfusion. Their sisters (nurses) are exemplary and technically top-notch. Taking care of my body and soul trauma at the same level.”
According to the star, her surgeon, Dr. Eugene Greeff, “is very good at stabilizing my legs with external fixators until the huge soft tissue damage and swelling disappears so that I can perform major surgery. “
Judd added: “What he did is of great significance. I will always bear his debt.”
Judd pointed out that South African hospitals have been dealing with the COVID B.1.351 strain, which is considered a new variant of the coronavirus that spreads faster. Her father Michael Ciminella (Michael Ciminella) has received his COVID-19 vaccine and was able to fly to Johannesburg.

She wrote: “My dear father, I got the words my parents never thought of: “In an emergency, you can’t answer the question, please come now. “In fact, because he has been vaccinated, he was able to come to South Africa. “He has always been my rock, companion, resource, helping me listen to so many crying doctors, a key support system and a kind, caring presence. Then, because it was unbelievably unbelievable, we carried out efficient disaster travel insurance on the air ambulance for 22 hours-4 trips to the United States. “
Judd said that once she was in a US hospital, she had to wait for “tissue damage and swelling to decrease.”
She said: “In the end, I am eligible for an 8-hour surgery to repair the bone, decompress the bleeding nerve and pick out bone fragments from the nerve.” “I am recovering from the operation now.
Judd also took the precious time to thank her entire nursing team.
