Dancing With The Stars Maksim Chmerkovksiy Undergoes Calf Surgery

According to Maks Chmerkovksiy’s instagram, he had surgery last night for his calf. Photo below. Also below is the sweetest photo of Baby Shai sending him love and the best wishes too courtesy of Peta Murgatroyd. Speaking of Peta, she told Us Weekly on Monday that Maks is staying positive despite the circumstances. “His spirits are a little bit lifted right now, and he’s kind of looking forward to getting it (his calf) taken care of and getting it treated so he can get back out and dance.” Let’s wish Maks a speedy recovery and hope he’s back on the dance floor soon.

ETA: Sadly, Maks’ injury might be worst than he first thought. From ET….

The 37-year-old Dancing With the Stars pro star has been sidelined in the competition due to a calf injury, and will also miss week three of the competition. Chmerkovskiy’s reps tell ET that he’s currently in recovery, and the procedure he underwent to repair his calf injury went well.

However, a source tells ET that Chmerkovskiy tore his calf muscle “pretty badly,” and that he’s gotten a series of shots — not a surgery — to help recover.

“He told everyone he will be back in a couple of weeks but that isn’t true, it’s a lot worse than everyone initially thought,” the source says. “Doctors are insisting that Maks sit out for at least a month, but knowing Maks he will try and rush it and get back into the competition.”
