General Hospital Spoilers: Kelly Monaco Has Major Surgery – Will Sam’s GH Filming and On-Screen Schedule Be Affected?

General Hospital Spoilers: Kelly Monaco Has Major Surgery - Will Sam's GH Filming and On-Screen Schedule Be Affected?

General Hospital spoilers report that GH star Kelly Monaco (Sam McCall) has announced on Instagram that she’s recuperating from major surgery. Kelly posted a photo of herself in the hospital, likely either going into or coming out of surgery, along with a short writeup about her ordeal.

Kelly’s surgery was on her hip to repair a torn labrum (the soft tissue that surrounds the hip socket). Hip labral tears can be extremely painful and can limit one’s range of motion. There are several treatment options, but surgery is the only way to actually repair labral tears, as they do not heal on their own.

Kelly has battled chronic pain due to the condition for some time and finally made the decision to have it addressed surgically. Kelly stated, “After over a decade of suffering from chronic, excruciating pain from a torn labrum in my hip, I finally took the first steps in bettering my health and myself. Looking forward to MANY positive changes coming soon!”

Kelly seems to have a great attitude, which will likely reduce her recovery time, and she’s been getting plenty of support from the folks at General Hospital. She wrote, “thank you @Valentinifrank @generalhospitalabc for the beautiful ‘get well’ flowers.”

She also thanked one person in particular at work who has been of great help. She wrote, “thanks to that guy at work who always has my back, for being a cheer up florist and an awesome handyman!!!” Could this be one of her co-stars she’s referring to, or perhaps one of the many behind-the-scenes people at GH?

It appears from her post that Kelly Monaco is back home and recuperating now, but it’s unclear whether the surgery impacted her taping schedule or her time on-screen. Hopefully, Kelly will be up and around (and pain-free) very soon! Stay tuned to the ABC soap and don’t forget to check CDL often for the latest General Hospital spoilers, updates, and news.
