Dance Moms star Abby Lee Miller has been reportedly diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma after undergoing emergency surgery.

It was initially believed Miller was suffering from a spinal infection, which landed her in Cedar Sinai Marina Del Rey Hospital early Tuesday morning.

Abby Lee Miller can take on anything that stands in her way - but that doesn't mean she isn't "devastated" about her non-Hodgkin's lymphoma diagnosis. "In the span of 24 hours, which was something that I have not seen, her condition rapidly deteriorated", he said. Dr. Michael Russo, weight loss surgeon who performed gastric sleeve surgery on Miller a year ago, says in a report in Entertainment Tonight that the back pain is not a good sign for the reality star.

According to the doctor, her situation is already life-threatening, and her blood pressure was already critically low. The doctor further said that she was paralysed and could not even move yesterday.

As Celebuzz! previously reported, Abby was sentenced to one year and a day in federal prison in 2017, followed by two years of supervised release.

Fortunately, Dr. Melamed has expressed that "it's looking good" for Miller, with his rep noting that there's often a "good prognosis" with people who've received a Burkitt lymphoma diagnosis.

She had been hospitalized on April 10, reported TMZ.com, for what People magazine later said was a thyroid condition.

After the four-hour-long surgery, Miller began to feel more sensation while recovering in the ICU.

When she is released from the hospital, Miller will have to go back to the halfway house, a source tells PEOPLE. She will have to undergo a battery of tests to discover the severity of her cancer. While she is not out of danger yet and would need a second spinal surgery, Melamed has revealed that Miller has regained movement in the arms, legs, and toes. "All you can do is pray and, as a surgeon, you maximize everything you can for the spinal cord to recover itself".

Miller continued to post on social media during her prison sentence and after moving to the halfway house.
