KSTP anchor Chris Egert said he is in the "no pain, no gain" part of his recovery process.

In a Facebook post, Egert said he is "at the stage in the recovery now where in order to advance, things need to hurt."


"I'm motivated by my family, friends, and all of you who continue to support me on this journey," Egert went on to write. "I'm motivated to get better for those who never will."

Egert had been facing ankle issues for most of his life and decided the best way to address those issues was to amputate part of his leg, which he did in December.

He began physical therapy shortly after the procedure, even taking his first outdoor walk post-procedure less than two weeks after the surgery.

Egert had said his biggest challenge so far was "being a patient patient and learning to take it easy."
