Jessie J is 'excited' to have had her leg cast removed.
The 23-year-old singer broke her leg during rehearsals in June. Jessie's left leg was confined in a large cast throughout the summer.
The cast was removed this week and Jessie is elated to walk on two feet again.
'I can't explain how excited I am to have my leg out of the cast. Yes, finally, I can wear two shoes instead of one,' Jessie told British newspaper The Daily Mirror.
Jessie had to cancel a slew of shows including a concert tour with Katy Perry as a result of her injury. In addition to creating challenges for the singer in her career, the wound has unfortunately left Jessie with permanent physical damage.
'I will always suffer from arthritis in my ankle. It really hurts,' Jessie explained.
'It will be something I have to live with forever. So I will never make that full recovery.'
Jessie is in good spirits despite knowledge of her chronic arthritis.
'I won't be able to wear heels again. But I'll have some bad-boy Sketchers blinged up for me,' Jessie said.
'At least I'm alive, and I can sing. I can't wait to get back on stage.'
