Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn revealed that she’s undergone another knee surgery to correct damage and address lingering pain she’s suffered from as a result of her sport.

On July 27, the retired athlete shared a carousel of Instagram photos and provided an update for her 2.2 million followers on the platform. Vonn included pics of herself in the hospital, her sweet pup helping with her recovery and the pizza she enjoyed post-procedure.

“Even with all these surgeries I have no regrets,” she wrote in part of her caption. “I loved skiing and I’m never going to complain about all the the things that have happened to me. It’s still the same motto as it always has been: When we fall, we pick ourselves up! 🙏🏻❤️💪🏻.”
