KATIE Price faces six months on her back with broken feet – admitting she is “gutted” after documents confirm the worst.
The former glamor model, 42, broke both heels after jumping off a wall in a nightmarish accident while on vacation in Turkey.
Yesterday she went straight to her surgeon at Fortius Clinic in West London. Katie emerged with new casts and in a wheelchair as she was helped by a clinic worker. The mom of five then moved on to a new chair in her favorite pink.
After leaving the clinic, Katie posted on her Instagram that she had just received “devastating” news – but without going into detail.
However, The Sun Online can exclusively reveal that Katie has learned that her recovery could take up to two years – and that she may not work for six months.
A source told us, “Doctors say she won’t be able to walk for six months or put weight on her feet.
“She needs major surgery on her feet as soon as possible because it’s worse than anyone thought.
“Recovery could take up to two years. She won’t even be walking around until 2021. She’s really upset and can’t believe it’s that bad. ”
Katie hinted at the bad news on Instagram, writing, “I just finished my appointment with my consultant and surgeon about my feet.
“After more scans, the news is absolutely devastating. I’m empty. “
After her two hour appointment with a consultant, Katie looked grim as she left the clinic.
She had been repaired with fresh boots on her damaged limbs and had been helped in her wheelchair.
The mother of five was then carried and placed in the back seat of her car before heading home.
Friends tried to cheer her up by driving her to a nearby restaurant for a bite to eat.
Katie had been rushed to A&E in Belek, Turkey, after the nightmarish crash at Land of Legends a week ago.
Earlier this week, Katie was forced to deny claims she faked her injury when a troll accused her of “covering up.”
The fan said Katie was pretending to have broken both heels – but getting her bunions removed.
A bunion is a painful lump where the big toe connects to the foot. This can be caused by wearing uncomfortable shoes for long periods of time.
Katie was traveling with her new boyfriend Carl Woods, her children Junior, 15, and Princess, 13, and a few friends.
She now faces the prospect of not being able to walk for six months. She hired a rehabilitation expert and former footballer Fred Murray to help her recover.
Fred worked with Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl after breaking his leg at a concert in Sweden in 2015. A source said: “Katie works with Fred from the exclusive Remedy health service.
“He’s the best in the business and one of the best people in the UK.
“He will have to teach her to walk again while her feet heal.
“It could take months, but if anyone can do it, they can.
Katie also moves in with Carl after only a month of dating. He’s been looking after her since the accident and they’re looking for places in Essex.
A friend revealed: “Katie has realized she will have to move because the one she is currently in is not wheelchair accessible.
