"Success! Surgery went very well yesterday and I'm recovering at home in vail with my family," she wrote in the post. "I want to sincerely thank everyone for their well wishes these last few days. It's going to be a long and hard road back but I will be back!! Xoxo"
Dr. Bill Sterett, who performed the procedure Sunday, thinks Vonn might even be back on the slopes in time for the start of World Cup season in November.
“But there are a lot of hurdles you can have between now and then,” Sterett said. “Everybody's goals are that. That's what she's got her focus on.”
He added: “In all honesty, the first few months will be me trying to pull the reins back on Lindsey [rather] than having to push her, in terms of therapy. But I can't emphasize enough how upbeat she's been through all of this. She's very goal-oriented. She's got her sights set on these next two years.”
