Answering a Q&A on her Stories from some of her 26.1M followers, Nina was asked, “What actually happened to your leg? Was it a tear or a break?”.

The 35-year-old replied by posting a snap of her with her leg bandaged while she spoke to a doctor. 

She wrote, “Both. Completely tore off my ACL, tore through my meniscus, and fractured my tibial plateau”.

“Shout out to my surgeon Dr. Neal ElAttrache who not only fixed me up but has been incredible post op checking on me and making sure I’m rehabbing correctly".

Nina was then asked if she can fully bend her knee yet following her surgery and she responded with a snap of her stretching out her leg and admitting, “I’m working my up to 120 degrees bend”.

The Love Hard star also shared an insight into what exercises she can do now as she continues to recover. 

“I mostly do physical therapy, every day for 3 hours and then a few more hours at home. I just started doing upper body work outs (mostly for my mental health)”, she revealed.
