Without losing her smile and without stopping dancing, Daniella Álvarez has become an example of self-improvement since she shared her decision, just four months ago, to undergo a partial amputation of her left leg. After the limb was paralyzed by the complications of another surgery, hindering her mobility and autonomy, the Colombian model reached this very difficult resolution: she would lose her leg to learn to walk with a prosthesis and regain a life as full as the previous one. to the accident.
Since then, her Instagram account has become the testimony of a promise that he is fulfilling step by step: after recovering from the operation, she showed us the video of his first dance with her brother, her main support on this path. Afterwards, she has proudly shown her scars and the moments, both happy and difficult, that she has lived in recent months. And now that the good weather is coming to the southern hemisphere … the one who was crowned Miss Colombia has been able to enjoy a dip in the sea that she missed so much.
Daniella’s family has been at the foot of the canyon throughout her journey, and this time it has been her cousin who has accompanied her in this very special moment. “After all how hard my process has been, what a beautiful reward it is to feel the water of the sea again!”, writes the model, who plunged into the ocean full of desire but still with many doubts.
“I had been wondering for days what it would be like to swim again, but more than that, it was my doubt not to know if I would enjoy it as before. And again I see it NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE. Here I am with my soul cousin, who in my days harder she promised me that together we would return to the sea … here we are and I am too happy “.
In the video, we can see her swimming in the high seas without any difficulty, and with more skill than her cousin, who uses a pool noodle “Me with the noodle and her without the noodle! Do you see it as normal?” in front of the camera.
Her next challenge: dancing on the beach
As shown by all the messages that accompany her images on the beach, Daniella is delighted to have returned to enjoy the sun and the sea. But she still has another summer wish to come true: “I want to dance now !!!!!” she wrote at the bottom of a video that she rescued from last year. “Look at this video I found dancing with my two legs,” she says. “I hope I can surprise you dancing champeta, only this time I will do it with my prosthesis !! Amen Amen”.
And it is that she was dancing champeta as the former Miss Colombia won over her Instagram followers: dancing is what she likes to do the most and one of the reasons why she decided to go ahead with the operation. “Here they are infiltrating me to reduce inflammation
The less cheerful side of your recovery
Although her religious devotion, the support of her family and her vital attitude have helped Daniella to face this process with the best of smiles, not all moments of a recovery of this caliber are easy. In addition to spreading her happiness, the model has taken care to show the other side of such a complex postoperative period on her Instagram: scars, medications or physical therapy sessions are now part of her routine and, as such, they have their place in an account dedicated to showing, in the good and the bad, this new part of her life.
For example, a few days ago, she showed what the painful infiltration and laser process she is undergoing to reduce the volume of her scars consists of. “I have to watch everything they do to me,” she explains, while her makeshift camera is forced to look up. “All my respect to this woman,” he says, as Daniella betrays the pain in her deep breaths but faces the process without making a complaint.
This is just one part of Daniella’s new reality, that every day she has to take twenty-four pills and receive an injection so that blood clots do not form in her body. “Being medicated has been one of the most difficult things in my recovery, because some of these pills make me very sleepy during the day, hindering my rehabilitation, and others like the injection have my whole belly with bruises,” she says.
Little by little the dose will be lowered, but they are necessary to alleviate the severe pain and cramps that she still suffers in her legs. “It is very hard to fight against sleep and the fatigue caused by the medicine. But what I can tell you is that nothing stops my desire to get ahead.”

Y después de todo lo duro y lo difícil que ha sido mi proceso, que linda recompensa es volver a sentir el agua del mar! Llevaba días preguntándome cómo sería volver a nadar, pero más que eso, era mi duda de no saber si volvería a disfrutarlo como antes. Y otra vez lo compruebo: NADA ES IMPOSIBLE. Aquí estoy con mi prima hermana del alma, quien en mis días más duros me prometió que juntas volveríamos al mar… aquí estamos y yo demasiado feliz 😀 ❤️ @makeupbyorieta te amo 🌊🙏 gracias Dios.
