She was also able to attend the General Hospital Fan Club Weekend shortly afterward. This is leading fans to believe that it shouldn’t affect her gig on GH. She even posted smiling pictures of her at the event with a few fellow co-stars.
One of those includes Wally Kurth. However, there is no statement confirming or denying that the injury won’t affect her scenes.. So, fans will have to wait to find out if the hand surgery will derail her appearance on the ABC soap opera.

General Hospital Spoiler – Not the First Animal Accident For Leslie Charleson
Just two years ago, Charleson suffered another animal-related injury. On Twitter, the GH actress explained how she suffered a broken leg. It turns out that while walking her dog, Riley Rose, the actress tripped. A broken leg is serious and a temporary recast had to be done while Leslie recovered.
We are hoping that Leslie Charleson has a speedy recovery! Although hand surgery is never fun, animal advocates and GH fans everywhere are amazed that she went to great lengths to save her pet tortoise. We wish them both the best. Hopefully, there won’t be any other injuries in the near future.
