Christy Mack has posted a set of new photos as she works to fully recover from being beaten, allegedly by War Machine aka Jonathan Koppenhaver.

Mack, an adult film star, was allegedly beaten by mixed-martial artist War Machine after he discovered that she was reportedly cheating on him. She has denied cheating on him while he has denied beating her.

Mack took to Instagram to post four pictures, showing various stages of recovery. 

“2 days, 2 weeks, 4 weeks, and last night. I’ve had several dentist visits to make eating more comfortable and make my smile look more normal. I still have a few more dental visits to go. I’ve had my eyes checked out and made aware that I’m very lucky to have my vision where it is, since the muscle is tethered by the fragments from the blowout fracture in my left eye,” she said.

“My multiple nose fractures will be fixed in the next couple of months. While they’re fairly symmetrical, my nose is shifted on the inside and out causing breathing issues. (I also make everyone feel how my bone sticks out on the left side because it feels so weird.) My top lip will regain movement in less than 6 months… looking forward to using straws again. My liver seems to be alright. I was admitted back to the hospital shortly after I was released the first time for some minor treatment, but I did not have to have surgery. While my face is starting to look decent again from the swelling going down, it is still not my own.

“Cutting what was left of my hair off, and losing 15 lbs(it’s a lot when you’re 5’1″) made me feel even further away from myself. It’s hard to look in the mirror every day and see someone you do not know. After having makeup done and dressing up for yesterday’s charity event, I felt much better about how I look now. It made me feel more normal, and beautiful for the first time in a very long time. The event that I went to was for Face Forward. A non profit charity that funds surgeries for women and children that have been in horrible situations that require them to have reconstructive surgery. They are not funding me, my surgeries are being donated by other doctors. I met many wonderful people and look forward to working more with them in the future.”

Mack was interviewed by TMZ while at the event.

“It was a little bit of a rough recovery, it’s been about a month now, I was in a lot of pain at first but now I’m feeling really good. I just have a couple more surgeries to go through with my nose and a few of my mouth, but past that I think I’ll be okay,” Mack said.

“I look fairly decent for what happened,” she told TMZ in her first public appearance since the attack.

War Machine, whose real name is Jonathan Koppenhaver, is currently in prison and has been leveled with 32 charges in the alleged attack.

Mack added that she has received a lot of support and is doing well.

“I’m actually doing really well, healing really well,” Mack said.

“I’ve got a lot of great support from my friends and my fans, so that’s definitely helping me a lot.”
