DANIELLE Colby has shared a heartbreaking post about “losing so much” after her surgery.
The 46-year-old American Pickers host recently underwent a hysterectomy after suffering from “incredibly painful” uterine fibroids.
And Danielle opened up about her post-op mood in a new Patreon post.
The presenter admitted that she had “lost” her “desire to work” in the “emotionally draining” time after her surgery.
But Danielle found a new sense of motivation while researching burlesque performer Chantel Capri.
She wrote: “I received an email from [Chantel’s] daughter, stating that her mother, Chantel Capri, appeared in the episode of American Pickers with Blaze Fury.
“I had lost so much desire to work during this healing time and now some of my enthusiasm is back after reading this email.”
Danielle continued: “Work can be emotionally draining at times, but there are many days where I wake up excited and excited to get to my ‘office.
“I guess that emotion means I’ve chosen the right career path.”
Danielle has been documenting her recovery online after her surgery, sharing photos as she struggles to get back on track.

The History Channel star underwent her hysterectomy in late October, and one of the first things she did was give her fans an update.
“I am extremely exhausted, but the surgery is over. It only took a few hours and I woke up at noon yesterday,” she said.
The reality star shared a rare photo of her recovery, posting a selfie from her hospital bed with a cuddly stuffed animal.
He continued: “I received the best care possible and felt like I was in good hands the entire time. That’s huge!
“I’m thankful for that above all else. I’m thankful they allowed Jeremy to stay with me in the hospital and I’m thankful for all the beautiful flowers I received and the loving messages from everyone.”
“This is the best nursing and care staff I have ever experienced.”
“I’m excited for the future, for my healing process, to get back to work and dance again,” she added.
Danielle is recognized for her appearances on American Pickers alongside Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz.
Frank, 57, who was removed from the show in 2020, was hospitalized for a stroke in July.
The former TV star, who is currently under guardianship, has been in a rehabilitation center since September 6.
