‘The Bachelorette' Star Trista Sutter Undergoes Surgery After Breaking Leg, With No Insurance
Trista Sutter went under the knife! The Bachelorette star recently had a freak accident while playing tennis in which she broke her leg.
Sources have now confirmed that she had to undergo surgery after breaking her leg. The operation was done to fix a broken tibia, tear of the syndesmosis and torn ligament.
The reality star took to Instagram on February 4 to announce that she broke her left foot and her "weight crunched down on it."
The former Miami Heat dancer later shared another Instagram post to share with her fans if the injury wasn’t bad enough. She wrote,
I had never broken a bone before, but leave it to me (and Murphy’s freaking law) to break my ankle 3 days into not having insurance. We’re all good thanks to Cobra, but ugh!
Another serious issue for Sutter, who currently lives in Colorado, was not financial. In the post, she revealed that she broke her ankle "three days into not having insurance."

Sorry to interrupt your pretty picture scrolling for a no filter, no makeup maybe tmi share. Lots of questions and messages that I didn’t want to ignore, so share, I’m happy to. On Monday, I was playing #socialsweating tennis with my sweet friends and rolled my left foot while all my weight crunched down on it . I had never broken a bone before, but leave it to me (and Murphy’s freaking law) to break my ankle 3 days into not having insurance. We’re all good thanks to Cobra, but ugh! After 2 sets of X-Rays and an MRI, my Dr determined that I needed surgery to fix a broken tibia, torn ligament and syndesmosis tear. Scary, but life. I checked in this morning and was in happy land by 8:00 am. My anesthesiologist did the best job ever with a concoction that left me with no pain or nausea (and I am THE biggest wimp EVER!) Thank you to whomever invented nerve blocks!!!!!! It’ll last for 3 days, but I’ll take dealing with no feeling in my leg (it feels like a big shot of Novacaine from the dentist) over the pain of actual pins and stitches in my bones and ligaments any day and twice on Sunday!! I am staying on top of potential pain and am hopeful to get restful sleep thanks to my doctor’s prescriptions. #yaysleep I definitely have a newfound appreciation for those out there dealing with injuries or disease, lack of insurance or lack of funds and single parents who may not have the assistance of someone like my hardworking, thoughtful, stepping-up husband and kids, and my sweet friends that I’ve tagged and not tagged (and all of you!) who have swollen my heart with feeling the love. Ive been put in the best hands and I’m a happy mama. I’ll keep you all posted in stories, but know your love and prayers and thoughts and meals and treats and messages fill my bucket and as a sensitive soul who deals with internal demons who break me down, please know that you’re building me up and I couldn’t be more grateful. #surgerylife #steadmanclinic #grateful #ontheroadtorecovery #mytruth #blessedwife #blessedmama #blesseddaughter #blessedfriend
Back in 2017, Sutter had another health scare when she suffered a seizure during a family vacation in Croatia.
