The former 'Dance Moms' star is currently battling Burkitt Lymphoma - which is a rare form of cancer - and after being placed in rehab following her emergency surgery in April which saw her have 52 staples inserted into her spine, it has now been reported she is free to go home.

According to People magazine, Abby was discharged from the Los Angeles rehabilitation centre this week, where she had been staying in order to make sure she recovered from the intensive surgery.

The news comes after the 51-year-old reality star took to Instagram recently to praise her female doctors for supporting her throughout her recovery.

Posting a picture of herself in a wheelchair alongside two women riding scooters, she wrote: "I still beat them! On foot they failed & their birds flew too slow! Seriously, these two female Doctors, @kadeletti and @missoscar22 were such vital parts of my Physical Rehabilitation - I can never thank them enough! #abbylee

Despite her medical ordeal, Abby has been able to poke fun at her situation.

Previously, she showed off a special wrist band bearing the words 'Fall Risk' and wrote on Instagram: "If I Could FALL, I Would CRAWL To The MALL! #spinesurgery (sic)"

The former dance instructor also doesn't seem too upset at the prospect of losing her locks to chemotherapy.

In an Instagram post with her hand to her face, she quipped: "HAIR TODAY, GONE TOMORROW...

Abby first underwent underwent emergency surgery in April after complaining of "excruciating neck pain".

She went under the knife for a laminectomy, an operation to remove the back of one or more vertebrae and her doctor, Dr. Hooman M. Melamed, previously admitted the dance instructor would have died if she had not gone in for the procedure.

He said at the time: "She's made some recovery in 24 hours, which is better than no recovery.

"Nobody wants to end up thinking they're going to be paralysed for the rest of their life. That's a reality that's facing all of these patients going into it. All you can do is pray and, as a surgeon, you maximize everything you can for the spinal cord to recover itself. I am hopeful.

"There's a chance this can spread to any part of the body ... this is probably coming from somewhere else.

"We don't know where the source is. Any tumor that spreads anywhere is automatically Stage 4, but we have not determined the stage yet."
