The 42-year-old former glamor model underwent six-hour surgery last week after breaking her feet in a freak accident in Turkey earlier this month.
In her latest YouTube video posted on Wednesday, Katie explained that she will suffer for the rest of my life and has been told she will have arthritis.

Turning before her operation, Katie said, “So updating on my feet, they say it will take me two years to get back on my feet after proper rehabilitation.
“I have my operation on Friday. People don’t think I broke my feet or my ankles.
“But why do I have to justify? If I say I broke my feet, I broke them. Why would I lie or get sympathy for it?

Permanent: In her last YouTube video posted Wednesday, Katie explained that she will be in pain for the rest of my life and has been told she will have arthritis.
“I mean it’s wrong. They think I had surgery for bunions. I have the most perfect feet normally.
Katie later said in the video that she refused to let the injury take her down and vowed to lead an independent life as much as she could.
“Yeah, it’s very painful,” she said.
“For the rest of my life, my feet will hurt. I’m going to have arthritis, I’m going to have to learn to walk again. Fact. I was told that.

Katie took her Instagram Stories in the early hours of Saturday morning after the operation to post a hospital update on how she was doing.
Posting a video of herself in bed at 2:30 a.m., Katie revealed that she was unable to sleep as she wandered around the empty room.
She said, “So at 2:30 am I can’t sleep despite the fact that I had painkillers and am in so much pain and so tired,” followed by a sad emoji.

In a long post, Katie wrote: “I wanted to update everyone who sent me all the beautiful messages ❤️
“So I had my 6 hours of operation. Sadly, more procedures were needed when they got into my feet than I expected, but I’m lucky to be lucky enough to get back on my feet one day.
“The doctors at Chelsea Westminster Hospital have been amazing and the surgeons have totally my GREATEST RESPECT and absolutely FANTASTIC very professional and have been very honest and up front with me in making me sink into my head the severity of my injuries MASSIVE THANKS …
Update: Katie kept her followers updated about her injury and subsequent surgery
And a huge thank you to @carljwoods for constantly adapting me to his job and being by my side, loving knowing that I found the man who surprisingly ticked all the boxes I could only dream of a man and knowing that I spend the rest of my life with him.
The setback is the latest in a string of personal woes for Katie.
Before traveling to Turkey, her eldest son Harvey, 18, was placed in intensive care due to a high temperature and difficulty breathing. He has since been released and has made a full recovery.
She was also criticized after her new puppy, Rolo, whom she bought for the 13th birthday of her daughter, the princess, died weeks later after being trapped in a chair.
