But while she did joke on air that she was on a lot of medication, Melissa told E!, "I feel everything. We didn't take pain medication today simply because I wanted to be able to feel if my neck was doing something it shouldn't be able to.”
They even had a little code — for her to squeeze Tony’s hand if something twisted wrong, so he knew to stop. Apparently the issue isn’t behind her, since Melissa said, "This potentially can be a big injury." She has to continue with physical therapy, ice, heat, medication and Tony choreographing around her neck.
She and Tony have their Tango dance tonight, along with the remainder of the individual dances and the Team “Gangnam Style” routine. We’ll have to see if they go easy on her neck or what. Stay safe out there!
