After being taken to the hospital for mysterious stomach pains last Tuesday, Dancing With the Stars pro Julianne Hough is confirming reports that she will have her appendix removed tomorrow.

In a statement released Monday afternoon on her personal website, Julianne reveals that she has been diagnosed with endometriosis — a development of uterine-lining tissue outside the uterus on the surfaces of organs in the pelvis or abdomen where they are not supposed to grow — and will be "undergoing minor surgery to remove her appendix."

According to Eonline.com, Cody Linley‘s partner will still be dancing on Monday night’s show, and the Hannah Montana actor will have a substitute partner starting next week.

 

DWTS has been plagued by health problems recently – Julianne’s brother Derek Hough was knocked out briefly after a fall earlier this season, Jeffrey Ross suffered a scratched cornea, Brooke Burke injured her foot and Misty May-Treanor had to leave the competition after hurting her ankle.
