"I'll spare you the gruesome details, but when I came out of surgery the night of my fall, the doctor told Mike [her husband] that he had put between 40-50 stitches in", she wrote.
Now that she's back in action, Underwood is ready to share what went down that resulted in her injury. For weeks, Underwood had been leaving a trail of cryptic Instagram photos of her partially covered face, and managed to work people into a frenzy about what she might look like.
Bones revealed that she had sent him an email prior to taping the show and said, "I may look different".
"There was one step, and I didn't let go of the leashes - priorities! - so that's why my left hand's fine, but I went to catch myself and I just missed a step".
If Carrie Underwood is insecure about how her scar looks when it's not covered up by concealer, she doesn't have to worry about making a big change in her daily routine to try to hide it. "There's one lone step and I said if I'd fallen anywhere else, I would've absolutely fine". "But it was one step that messed everything up", Underwood said on the radio show. "But, I don't know".
She still has a scar, she said, though it can not be seen when she has make-up on. However, she chose to send a pre-emptive message to her fan club in January explaining the situation (the one where she said she might look different) because she was anxious that someone would snap a picture of her face in public while she was still healing. She also knew as she resumed her life and went out more, people would wonder about the changes.
Carrie continued saying to Bobby Bones that after the fall she "was at a point where I didn't know how things were going to end up. I didn't know what was going to go on and didn't know what it was going to heal like".
"I was anxious he would be scared of me", Underwood confessed. "But now if I have make-up on, he says, 'Mommy, your boo boo's all gone'".
"I was nervous about music, first and foremost", Underwood said.
Underwood wasn't looking to sit and wallow in self pity during her recovery process.
