"The doctors said they can feel the bone growing and it's a good sign. The doctor told me to rest, but I said there is no way I can quit. I have been just doing the best I can."
The Extra host said she's been taking the necessary precautions to avoid worsening her condition, including icing her body and relaxing in hot baths after dance rehearsals and performances.
"Once I get home, I get in a hot tub and in an Epsom salt bath. I can't believe how dangerous dancing is! I told Derek, 'I don't understand! I played ice hockey, football, basketball -- when did I get so fragile?' Unfortunately the Hough's too rough!" Menounos told Us.
In addition, Menounos is also icing regularly and avoiding driving.
"I'm icing when I get home. My friend Joe drives me from rehearsals and I have a pedicure station with ice in it in my car, so I ice my whole body down."
While Menounos doesn't seem to be too worried about her physical state, Hough is reportedly "a little concerned."
However, the entertainment reporter has no intention to give up on the competition and is continuing to maintain an optimistic attitude.
"I kept saying, 'We are not talking about this! We are dancing. I am having the best time of my life and I need to power through,'" she explained.
