UPDATE (AUGUST 22, 11:15 A.M.): Captain Lee shared an update on how his recovery has been going after undergoing surgery on his foot earlier this month.
After Captain Sandy inquired about how Captain Lee's healing has been going on Twitter on August 21, he responded, "I will find out Thurday, but so far no major issues, other than the gym is a bit of a challenge, can't go swimming, can't ride my bike, small issues I used to take for granted. H'mmmm, There's a life lesson in there somewhere. Thanks for checking in on me."

The original story continues below.
Captain Lee Rosbach is recovering in the hospital following a recent surgery.
The Below Deck boss shared the news of his procedure on Instagram Wednesday. Captain Lee posted a picture of himself in his hospital bed right after getting out of the operating room at the Boca Raton Regional Hospital in Florida. He had minor surgery on his foot, his rep told The Daily Dish.
Even though it was clear that he had just come out of surgery, wearing a hospital cap and gown and all, Captain Lee still had a big smile on his face after the procedure was finished. He also managed to crack a joke in the caption to the photo on Instagram. "Fresh out of the OR and all is well. Like the hat?" Captain Lee shared on Instagram. "Great team, thanks to the staff at Boca Raton Regional and Dr Weatherall."
It appears that Captain Lee has long battled issues with his foot. He has previously opened up about his past surgeries and recovery in 2015 and 2017.
Below Deck Mediterranean's Captain Sandy Yawn sent her best wishes to Captain Lee as he recovers from his most recent surgery. "Sending healing vibes!" she tweeted. "You will be back on your feet in no time!"
We all know that nothing can keep the Stud of the Sea down for long. Here's to a speedy and successful recovery, Captain Lee!
