Abby Lee Miller has exposed her huge cancer scar in a new Instagram post.
On Wednesday, April 17, 2019, the Dance Moms star, 52, shared a photo of her naked back with a long surgery scar running down it. Miller had short hair due to chemotherapy in the shocking shot.
As Radar readers know, the reality TV star was diagnosed with Burkitt Lymphoma, a rare and fast-growing cancer that affects the lymph nodes.
In April 2018, Miller told fans how she'd had "10-hour emergency spine surgery to remove a mass from strangling my spinal cord and the horrible severity of what that mass turned out to be!"
In a long caption on Wednesday, Miller explained her new picture and ripped doctors she claimed had misdiagnosed her during her long health ordeal.
She wrote, "One year ago today ~ I underwent emergency surgery for an infection in my spine. This mass/tumor choking my spinal cord turned out to be Burkitt Lymphoma. I endured ten rounds of chemo therapy (each lasting 6 days with 4/ 24hr bags pumping poison into my body ending with a spinal tap in 3 spots, plus another shot of Chemo into my tailbone area up the spinal cord around my brain cavity) Ten times! Another spine surgery was needed & I have one more still to go."
Miller continued, "I struggled thru months of physical therapy to learn to sit up again, to crawl and maybe with a miracle someday I'll walk. Why didn't the ER Doctors on duty do their jobs? I came in twice with the same symptoms? Why didn't somebody listen to me, the patient? I finally found the right team that's why I lived to tell my story, I have a lot to say! Thank you to all wonderful top notch professionals who continue to help me heal."
According to the dance coach, however, the first doctors let her down.
Miller ended her post by writing, "For those who missed it, misdiagnosed me, and the so called Federal "Doctor" who took me off medication cold turkey and the other ER "Doctor Hollywood" who told me to go home and take it easy for 10 days - STOP practicing! Please ??."
The TV star's medical nightmare began after she spent eight and a half months in prison after pleading guilty to not reporting an international monetary transaction and one count of concealing bankruptcy assets.
At the time, Miller, who was disgraced by her financial misdeeds, got her business affairs, will and funeral plans in order, according to a Radar insider.
Despite her cancer battle, however, Miller recently returned to Dance Moms and has been working 12-hour days against her doctors' orders, another source said.
"She is stretching herself too thin," the source close to Miller told Radar. "She is working from 8am to 8pm."
"Her doctors are telling her to stop. But she needs the show and the money for a comeback."
