Jennifer Gray is recovering at home following surgery to treat a back injury she sustained while competing in Dancing With The Stars.
The Dirty Dancing actress was crowned the queen of the dancefloor last month but almost pulled out of the finale altogether after rupturing a disc in her back, prompting a brief hospital visit.

Gray went under the knife for a minor operation to fix the injury last week – and the surgery was a success.

The actress tells, “I’m still recovering at home. I have to rest a bit more, but I feel great – completely pain free.”

Doctor Robert S. Bray Jr. reveals he removed “a huge fragment” from Gray’s back during the procedure.
