This is just so tragic!

The 51-year-old reality star, who was recently released from a Victorville, California prison, underwent a four-hour emergency operation Tuesday as doctors first thought she had a spinal infection.

ET's Lauren Zima caught up with Siwa at WE Day California, airing August 17 on NBC, where the 14-year-old star - who appeared on two seasons of Dance Moms - revealed she visited Miller on Wednesday.

The reality TV star was unable to speak as she was approached by paparazzi outside Cedars-Sinai Marina Del Rey Hospital in California. He told People, this is a preliminary diagnosis but he anticipates she will need chemotherapy or radiation dependent on the "sensitivity of the tumor". Her physician told ET that she has "severe muscle and bone pain in her back, shoulders, arms, and legs".

Abby Lee Miller has been diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin lymphoma just weeks after leaving prison, according to reports.

Further testing is reportedly needed to confirm the cancer, but she should know in the next day or two.

Sweden police told Icelandic suspect likely fled their way
Police commissioner Olafur Helgi Kjartansson told The Associated Press in March it was 'a grand theft on a scale unseen before'. The escaped prisoner was being held at the Sogn prison in rural southern Iceland, located some 95 kilometers from the airport.

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

Following an MRI, it was determined that Miller had an infection in her spine and immediate surgery was required. "She's not good, but she luckily is in good spirits". "Her blood pressure was bottoming out".

"She's made some recovery in 24 hours, which is better than no recovery".

Dr. Melamed said they hope to "start mobilizing her, start thinking about the rehab, start pushing the body, pushing the brain and spinal cord for making recovery". Following the medical procedure, Dr. Melamed revealed that Miller could have died if she didn't undergo the surgery.

Melamed also mentioned that he feels positive after his high-profile patient showed signs of regaining sensation, but also claimed that Miller is still not out of danger yet.

Earlier this year, Entertainment Tonight reported Miller had lost about 100 lbs. and was feeling "great".
