Abby Lee Miller nearly died from spinal infection — Surgeon

Abby Lee Miller's Hospitalization Had 'Nothing To Do With A Back Injury'

Orthopedic spine surgeon Dr. Hooman Melamed of Marina del Rey treated the "Dance Moms" star after she had been complaining of back pain for a couple of weeks.

Dr. Melamed revealed that Miller may require another surgery, but for now she is recovering in hospital, where she will remain overnight and possibly for the rest of the week.

Extra reported that Abby Lee Miller underwent a surgery on her spinal cord at 1 AM on Tuesday to stop the infection. Her blood pressure was bottoming out.

Her condition began to deteriorate after she experienced "excruciating neck pain" and weakness in her arm. "She could have died".

Vin Diesel acquires right for xXx film franchise; fourth film in development
While the xXx movies have all been met with mixed-to-negative critical reception, they've performed quite well commercially. According to Variety , Vin Diesel and the H Collective made a joint announcement on Tuesday.

Less than 24 hours later, Miller was seen on the verge of tears as she left the halfway house in Los Angeles. "She was not doing well", he added. What's more unusual, is that Miller's health started deteriorating at an alarming pace, which prompted the surgeon to conduct the operation as soon as possible.

"There could be a million reasons of this". "She has a very well controlled diabetes, actually her numbers are in the pre-diabetic range so to see something like that, it is extremely unusual". "When Abby first went to the ER, she was nearly unable to move [her] arms and legs and was having trouble getting out of bed".

Miller's spinal surgery comes less than a month after the 51-year-old dance instructor was released from the Federal Correctional Complex in Victorville, California, where she served 259 days of a 366-day sentence after pleading guilty to bankruptcy fraud in June 2016. Doctors removed an infected mass during the surgery, according to ETOnline It's unclear what caused Abby's condition, Melamed said, and whether or not she'll walk again is also reportedly in question. She moved to a residential re-entry facility in March.
