Carrie Underwood is ready to say farewell to 2017! The country crooner shared with her fans in November that she had broken her wrist after taking a fall on the front steps of her home, and on Sunday she revealed that she sustained additional injuries from the incident.
Underwood revealed in a post to her fan club members that in addition to having surgery on her wrist, she required stitches on her face.
"There is also another part of the story that I haven’t been ready to talk about since I have still been living it and there has been much uncertainty as to how things will end up," she writes. "It’s crazy how a freak random accident can change your life."
Detailing the injuries, Underwood continues, "In addition to breaking my wrist, I somehow managed to injure my face as well. I’ll spare you the gruesome details, but when I came out of surgery the night of my fall, the doctor told [Underwood's husband] Mike [Fisher] that he had put between 40 and 50 stitches in."
After the fall, the 34-year-old artist canceled a benefit show in Nashville and Fisher returned home early from a hunting trip. In her recent post, Underwood says that seven weeks after the incident, she's healing but "not quite looking the same."
“I honestly don’t know how things are going to end up but I do know this: I am grateful," she adds. "I am grateful that it wasn’t much, much worse. And I am grateful for the people in my life that have been there every step of the way.”“I honestly don’t know how things are going to end up but I do know this: I am grateful," she adds.

Carrie Underwood Photographed After Serious Injury Requiring 40 Stitches
Carrie Underwood may be keeping a low profile, but she's not shying away from time at the gym!
The 34-year-old singer ran into Below Deck alum Adrienne Gang while working out at an exclusive resort outside of Knoxville, Tennessee, in mid-December, just weeks after sustaining serious injuries during a November fall.
Gang posted a photo of the two to Twitter on Dec. 12, and though Underwood appears to be wearing a brace on her wrist, there was no sign of injury to her face -- despite the singer receiving 40 to 50 stitches.
"I didn't notice [her injuries]," Gang tells ET. "She was running on a treadmill like everything was fine. She seemed like she was perfectly fine."
