How Todd Chrisley broke his leg

Todd broke his leg by slipping on stones near a pool and falling.

He had ran from the pool house to the main house in the rain, before he fell and realised he could no longer move.

The Chrisley Knows Best star shared the story of what happened on the podcast he runs with wife Julie Chrisley, Chrisley’s Confessions.

As a result, Todd went on crutches in July 2019 due to breaking his fibula.

Todd Chrisley: Leg update

The reality TV star had to get surgery, which consisted of putting a steel plate and eight screws in his leg.

He has since been looking into a laser treatment to make the scar fade.

Todd may sometimes still suffer from pain in his leg, but it hasn’t stopped him from doing ordinary things, such as water-skiing.

Before the incident, he said he had never broken a bone in his life and that the only procedures that had been done to him were Botox and fillers.

Todd’s other health issues

Todd has also been treated for a burst salivary gland, but several fans were convinced he had plastic surgery as he kept wearing turtlenecks.

This took place during season six of Chrisley Knows Best.

He was also diagnosed with gout as a consequence of his diet, which included two sweet teas from McDonald’s, followed by three Cokes.

Todd also had kidney stones, but said that aside from that, breaking his leg is the worst pain he has ever felt.

Since then, he has been working towards correcting his broken leg, with support from his family and medical professionals.
