Porn star and domestic abuse awareness champion Christy Mack still has a long road ahead of her. After her alleged beating at the hands of ex-boyfriend and MMA fighter, Jonathan Koppenhaver, who goes by the name War Machine, Mack was left with life-threatening injuries.
The saga of bringing her attacker to justice continues still. Mack is slated to testify against War Machine on October 17, at a preliminary hearing. War Machine faces life in prison without parole if convicted.
Recently, Mack tweeted an update to her fans, which included four photos documenting her recovery up to that point. She also included some details about her injuries that had not yet been released.
“I’ve had several dentist visits to make eating more comfortable and make my smile look more normal. I still have a few more dental visits to go. I’ve had my eyes checked and made aware that I’m very lucky to have my vision where it is, since the muscle is tethered by the fragments from the blowout fracture in my left eye. My multiple nose fractures will be fixed in the next couple of months. While they’re fairly symmetrical, my nose is shifted on the inside and out causing breathing issues (I also make everyone feel how my bones stick out on the left side because it feels so weird). My top lip will regain movement in less than six months … looking forward to using straw again.
“My liver seems to be alright. I was admitted back to the hospital shortly after I was released the first time for some minor treatment, but I did not have surgery.”

Today, Mack tweeted that she was “out of surgery and resting”. She had previously said she had surgery coming, but did not specify what that was for.
I am out of surgery and resting now. I am in a little pain, but I'll be fine in a few days!
