BROOKE BURKE-CHARVET IS IN THE CLEAR AFTER SUCCESSFUL THYROID SURGERY

Wednesday, December 12, 2012 - New test results have confirmed actress-turned-reality star Brooke Burke-Charvet is now cancer-free after undergoing thyroid surgery last week (begs03Dec12).

The Dancing with the Stars host, who is married to Baywatch hunk David Charvet, went public with her health crisis last month (Nov12), and on 5 December she underwent a life-saving procedure to have her thyroid gland removed.

Now the 41 year old reveals she is on the road to recovery after doctors determined the operation was a complete success.

In a post on her ModernMom.com blog she writes, "I just got the results

back from all of my tests and great news - the thyroid cancer has been removed from my body and all my lymph nodes are clear. So I'm hoping that this is the end of the story. Woohoo!!! And thank God!...

"I've taken the rest of the year off to recover and catch up with my family and now we're just celebrating life. I never thought a mandatory vacation would be under these circumstances but it's nice to quiet the noise

and enjoy the R&R and stay home for a change.

"Every day I'm feeling better and I'm looking forward to getting back to my usual routine, but with a bit of a different outlook. I've never been one to take life for granted and it sounds so cliche to say it, but this whole thyroid experience has given my family such a scare that it seems

to have brought us all closer. And it's allowing us to ring in the New Year with a newfound respect for life."
