A source speaking to the publication claimed: ‘Katie’s been told she has to lie down and not move for two weeks when she gets home.
‘She will have to keep her legs elevated to give her the best chance of recovery – and that means no sex or moving around.
‘Carl will basically be her full time carer – the only time she’s allowed to move is to go to the toilet.’
The requirement will allegedly be ‘a real test’ for Katie, but the star is said to be following the doctor’s orders.
