Frazer Harrison/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) — Dancing with the Stars co-host Brooke Burke-Charvet says she has undergone surgery to remove a cancerous thyroid and is recovering well.

“Thank God it’s over.  I’m clean, surgery went well and I can talk.  Losing my voice was my biggest fear,” the mother of four tweeted after surgery.  “Thanks for all your prayers and light.”

Still, surgery was tough for the 41-year-old. It “feels like I got hit by a car,” she tweeted.

Burke-Charvet announced via YouTube last month that she had been diagnosed with thyroid cancer after a routine physical.
