& # 39; Everyone brings your hands together and pray, & # 39; said the reality TV star. & # 39; This is so scary, you have no idea. & # 39;

Her doctor Lawrence Piro explained that she not only had back surgery, but had also replaced her knee this summer.

And although it would take most patients six weeks to get back into shape, he said Abby worked overtime on her rehab and is already doing well after three weeks.

She pulled herself up with the help of a walker and put one foot in front of the other. She didn't walk very far, but it seemed like a big improvement for the besieged star.

Miller concentrated hard while smiling and then broke into tears, her head bowed so that the audience could see it. Then she smiled while holding back more tears.

She then stood with her hands off the walker for a moment while her doctor cheered.

& # 39; Thank you all for having me, & # 39; she said after her steps.

During the show, she also told about her struggle with Burkitt Lymphoma, and admitted that she has missed check-up screenings since she went into remission.

Her oncologist Piro shares that 10 to 20 percent chance that the cancer has returned, and delivers the results of her latest on-air scans.

Since her diagnosis of cancer and subsequent operations last year, Abby has been temporarily paralyzed and limited to a wheelchair.

Abby will be at the dance special of Dance Moms on Lifetime.

She certainly struggles with being in a wheelchair.

She fell out of her wheelchair in July when she tried to fly with American Airlines. She complained that there was not enough help.

& # 39; Help! "I fell and I can't get up", isn't that the truth? Let's just say that my switch from the aisle seat [sic] to my own seat didn't go so well! & # 39; the TV star drew an image on social media at Pittsburgh International Airport, Pennsylvania.

Abby added that while the staff were rude and not even blinking while she was on the floor, some helpful passengers came to her aid.

& # 39; The move should have happened on the bridge as usual and not waiting for a hundred ppl to board, I shouldn't have asked someone to call the paramedics and maybe the @americanair Gate Mgr at the on at least asked if I was okay? & # 39; she went on.

& # 39; Thank you to all Pgh International Airport Escorts who were so very nice & the hot firefighters who brought me quickly on my feet, in my chair and on the way !!!

And when she opted to stay away from American Airlines, her next flight on Tuesday saw her switch to United Airlines.

Abby again shared her trip on social media and revealed that this time around her chair had been broken – the staff were much friendlier.

& # 39; So United didn't break me, thank goodness, they just broke my wheelchair! & # 39;

She continued: & # 39; The United employee was great to me. She solved it! & # 39;
