Teen Mom 2's Chelsea Houska took a much-deserved break from Black Hills Beauty College back in Fall 2012 so she could move out of her house and recover from mono, but that's not all! Chelsea also had to undergo a major surgery due to tearing her ACL for the third time, which wasn't captured by MTV's cameras.

"Chelsea had another knee surgery during that month off, not shown on the show," Randy Houska tweeted on April 15. "Hard to do hair in a full leg brace."

Chelsea tore her ACL for the first time more than three years ago while jumping on a trampoline. The Teen Mom 2 had undergone a painful surgery, and then tore it again the next year (her second surgery was aired on Teen Mom 2, Season 2, Episode 3). Chelsea's third surgery went down September 4, 2012, shortly after hitting up Las Vegas to celebrate her 21st birthday with friends.

"Surgery went good," Chelsea tweeted the day after her operation. "Hopefully the last one I'll need on my poor knee."

As far as we know, Chelsea's wayward baby daddy, Adam Lind, wasn't there to lend a helping hand during her third surgery, but we’re glad that Chel-Chel has a successful recovery.
