    Brooke Burke-Charvet is on the mend.

    The Dancing with the Stars cohost underwent successful surgery for thyroid cancer Wednesday, tweeting Thursday that she is "resting, recovering" and the procedure "went well."

    "Dr Adashek is a genius," the mom of four added. "Thx Dr! Feels like I got hit [by] a car :("

    Brooke maintains a positive attitude before surgery

    "Thank God it's over," she added. "I'm clean, surgery went well & I can talk. Losing My voice was my biggest fear. Thx for all your prayers & light."

    Brooke bravely went public with her diagnosis in November, posting an intimate home video to ModernMom's YouTube channel. Since then, the 41-year-old former E! host has maintained a positive attitude, telling fans on Facebook pre-surgery she was "planning on a speedy recovery."

    We'll certainly be hoping and praying for her to have one.
