Jennifer Grey "Completely Pain-Free" After Back Surgery

The Dancing with the Stars champ says she still needs to rest at home, but she's definitely on the road to recovery

Jennifer Grey had no worries about getting the ruptured disc in her lower back repaired -- and it turns out she had the right attitude!

People reports that last week, the 50-year-old actress, who sustained the injury during her time on Dancing with the Stars, had surgery which removed "a huge fragment" of her back. 

"I'm still recovering at home," the DWTS champ told the magazine. "I have to rest a bit more, but I feel great -- completely pain free."

After DWTS wrapped, Grey said she was in tears from the immense pain in her back. But Grey's surgeon, Dr. Robert S. Bray Jr., revealed that the actress can now "go back to her family, pilates, dancing -- just about anything she wants to do."

Still, Grey's injury was pretty significant, as her rupture was measured at over one centimeter. Bray suggests "three to four days of bed rest, not dancing a waltz and a cha cha. But with Jennifer, when she sets her mind to something, there's no stopping her."

Do you think Jennifer Grey will take it easy for the next few days or jump back into her old routine? Chime in below!
