Actress Cherie Gil underwent surgery after suffering from a torn meniscus injury.

On Instagram, Cherie Gil shared a photo of herself lying in a hospital bed as she announced that she had a successful medical operation.

“Reminiscent of the ’80s, including my hairstyle, when I’ve been confined last if I recall correctly. Nonetheless, I enjoyed my stay knowing I was in great hands and was super taken care of," she wrote.

She then went on to thank all the doctors at a hospital in Makati who made her medical milestone a success.

Torn Meniscus, according to Mayo Clinic, occurs when "anything that causes you to forcefully twist or rotate your knee, especially when putting your full weight on it."

While she may have to take a rest of a little while, Cherie assured her fans that she is now "rebooted" and that she's been "given a clean bill of health."

On top of that, she is ready to join a marathon anew.

"Along with a new pair of knees ready to face the next marathon of this new chapter of my life," she wrote.

The acclaimed actress went on to remind her followers on Instagram to take care of their health.

"This is the longest post I [have] ever written! Because #healthiswealth guys!  BUT at the end of the day.. love and laughter is still the best medicine," she ended her post. 

One of the country's most acclaimed actresses, Cherie last appeared on ABS-CBN back in 2016, playing the role of Luciana Marchesa in the series Forevermore.
