Captain Lee Rosbach Reveals His Injury "Is Getting Worse" on Board

Still recovering from back surgery, the Below Deck captain shares a "frustrating" update on his health in this sneak peek.

Next Monday's all-new episode of Below Deck is shaping up to be a difficult one for Captain Lee Rosbach.

How to Watch

Watch Below Deck on Peacock and the Bravo App.

He underwent back surgery before filming for Season 10 began, and as this sneak peek shows, his recovery isn't going as well as he thought it would. The unsteady yacht makes things especially hard, so after struggling to get around on board with a cane, Captain Lee makes an important decision before the evening's dinner. "With all of the rocking and rolling, I'll probably use the crutches tonight," he tells Chief Stew Fraser Olender. "The cane's not all that stable. I'd hate to do a one-and-a-half on the way out."

Captain Lee elaborates on his condition in a confessional, telling the Below Deck cameras, "My injury is getting worse. The left side of my body, I don't feel anything. I expected a lot more progress than I'm experiencing."

The most "frustrating" part? As he puts it, "I can't do a goddamn thing about it. And it's hard."

Captain Lee first opened up about his health issues during a staff meeting on Below Deck's Season 10 premiere, telling the crew, "I am a little incapacitated. I have a nerve issue on my left side so I am going to depend on you guys in some areas."

At the time, he was under the assumption that "the worst is behind me now." 

Fans will have to stay tuned to follow his journey, but luckily we know that Captain Lee is currently doing well, as he took to Twitter on November 22 and responded to a fan concerned with his health, writing, "I'm doing well, thanks for asking, appreciate you." 

He gave another update on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen on November 28, explaining that while he had previously hit "a few rough patches," he's recently been "hitting the gym every day" and is "back on track."

Watch Below Deck on Bravo Mondays at 8/7c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo app.
