Talk-show queen Oprah Winfrey, 68, just opened up about a double-knee surgery she had in 2021 – saying that it’s given her new gratitude for her body.
During an episode of her Oprah Daily ‘The Life You Want’ Class– Oprah shared: “I had double knee surgery last year. I had knee surgery in August, and then I had another knee surgery in November. When I came home the first time, I literally could not lift my leg. I couldn’t lift my heel off of the bed, and I vowed if I was ever able to get up, walk around, and move again—that I would take advantage of movement, exercise, and of being able to be fully in my body.”
After the surgery, Oprah says that she’s focused more on exercising and prioritizing her health, adding: “As I was rehabilitating, I started hiking. Everyday, I tried to hike more and do more. My appreciation for every organ and every limb has expanded exponentially.”
