Kaley Cuoco Had Surgery Over The Holidays [Photo]

Kaley Cuoco received one of the worst Christmas gifts imaginable — The Big Bang Theory star had surgery over the holidays.

On December 26, The Big Bang Theory star shared an Instagram photo that showed husband Ryan Sweeting comforting her after her surgery. As you can see, Kaley Cuoco had some work done — on her sinuses.

“Coming out of sinus surgery and the first thing I see is my beautiful angel of a man, hes right there. Always. He’s taking amazing care of me ☺️i love my noodle. Hes perfection.”

As the Inquisitr previously reported, Kaley Cuoco’s Instagram page is full of photos of her pre-Christmas partying. However, the photos she shared on Christmas day seem to indicate that she and Ryan Sweeting spent the holiday at home quietly celebrating with their lucky rescue dogs. Kaley probably didn’t hit the eggnog too hard, knowing that her surgery was scheduled for the next day.

According to Everyday Health, sinus surgery improves sinus drainage, opens up nasal passages, and removes diseased tissue. One potential side effect of sinus surgery is a change in voice quality, so it will be interesting to see if Penny sounds different during the latter half of this season of The Big Bang Theory (Episode 14 and beyond).

Cuoco probably won’t mind if she sounds a bit different after her sinus surgery. During a roundtable discussion with the Hollywood Reporter, Kaley revealed that she really hates the sound of her own voice — so much so that she has a hard time watching herself on The Big Bang Theory.

“I hate the sound of my voice. I can hear it from a mile away — it’s nasally. Why do I talk like that? It freaks me out… I feel like I have the most annoying one. It’s hard for me to watch ‘Big Bang’. I TiVo it at home to support the show, but there are 37 episodes on there [I haven’t seen].”

Kaley Cuoco might feel a bit bad if she ever watches Penny make fun of Leonard’s nose troubles in “The Septum Deviation,” a recent Big Bang Theory episode about Leonard undergoing surgery to correct a deviated septum. Cuoco’s sinus surgery is like a weird form of karma that she didn’t really deserve (the writers are the ones who came up with the nose jokes).

Speaking of The Big Bang Theory, Spoiler TV recently shared the plot synopsis for the first episode of the show set to air after the holiday break. In “The Space Probe Disintegration,” Sheldon and Leonard will go dress shopping with Amy and Penny (the girls need someone to hold their purses while they peruse department store racks). Unfortunately, doing something they don’t want to do will make Leonard and Sheldon a bit testy, and the guys will get in a fight. Meanwhile, Wolowitz will try to distract Raj while he anxiously awaits data from a space probe.

Kaley Cuoco and the rest of the Big Bang Theory gang will return to CBS on January 8.
