DANIELLE Colby has shared a heartbreaking post about “losing so much” after her surgery.
And Danielle opened up about her state of mind after the operation in a new Patreon post.
The presenter admitted she had “lost” her “desire to work” in the “emotionally taxing” time after her surgery.
But Danielle found a new sense of motivation while digging into the burlesque artist Chantel Capri.
She wrote: “I received an email from [Chantel’s] daughter, stating that her mom, Chantel Capri, was shown on the American Pickers episode featuring Blaze Fury.
“I had lost so much desire to work during this healing time and now I have some of my excitement back after reading this email.”
Danielle went on: “Work can be emotionally taxing at times but there are many days that I wake up thrilled and excited to get to my “office”.
“I guess that excitement means I’ve chosen the right career path.”
Danielle has been documenting her recovery online after her surgery, sharing photos as she struggles to return to normalcy.

“This is the best care and nursing staff I have ever experienced.”
“I’m excited for the future, for my healing process, to get back to work and to dance again,” she added.
