Photographed hobbling around on crutches Tuesday outside the San Diego TV studio where she works as an on-air correspondent, Fedotowsky took to Twitter to explain her most recent accident, which a source tells Us Weekly occurred in early May.
"I fractured my femur & have a osteochondral defect in my knee. Such a bummer," she wrote in response to fellow Bachelorette star Trista Sutter's tweet of concern. Later, Fedotowsky -- engaged to Roberto Martinez -- joked to a fan that she should outfit herself in bubble wrap to prevent future injury.
The source tells Us that Fedotowsky, who's "in a lot of pain," will soon be meeting with a surgeon to discuss treatment options.
