Katie Piper Is Recovering In Hospital In Pakistan Following Operation
Katie Piper is recovering in hospital in Pakistan after undergoing surgery with her long-term surgeon.
The presenter flew out to the middle Eastern country to undergo treatment from Dr Muhammad Ali Jawed who led her pioneering surgery and has been working with her for more than a decade.
Katie has had more than 200 operations since sulphuric acid was thrown in her in an attack arranged by her ex boyfriend in 2008.
Joined by her devoted husband Richard Sutton, Katie is now recovering from yet another surgery as she explains to her followers why she's been missing from social media.
"Hi guys," she said in and Instagram story. "I'm currently in hospital in Pakistan in Mr Jawad's clinic hence why I've been quiet on the story but I'm recovering now."
Going on to discuss her recent appearance on Famous and Fighting Crime, she told followers: "Thanks for all your messages that you've sent me about famous and fighting crime obviously haven't been on her a lot.
"It's great to read your feedback and response. Sorry I can't reply to everybody individually but it's really good to hear your feedback."
She even showed off her hospital room and her surgical stockings, telling fans: "First day in my clothes. Gotta keep these stockings on!"
A spokesperson for Katie previously confirmed she was recovering well from her operation. They said: "Katie has travelled to Pakistan to have an operation by her long-standing surgeon who is now based there.
"Katie is currently recovering in hospital and Richie her husband is by her side.
"She sends her love and thanks to everyone who has sent well wishes and hopes for a speedy recovery."
Katie's ex boyfriend Daniel Lynch was sentenced to life in prison with a minimum of 16 years after raping Katie and arranging the acid attack to take place.
Stefan Sylvestre was ordered to carry out the attack then received life in prison with a minimum term of six years. He was released from prison in October last year.
