Dancing with the Stars Injury! Kim Fields Ignoring Doctor’s Orders to Skip Rehearsals

This is not just what the doctor ordered.

Kim Fields is now the second Dancing with the Stars contestant to be injured while rehearsing for Famous Dances Night on the ABC reality dance competition.

Fields – who follows Jodie Sweetin on the injury list this week – was taken in for some testing at the urging of her pro dance partner Sasha Farber and was told by the doctor that her scans showed “indication of stress fractures” in her legs.

“This is not something that you ignore, so I want you to not do the rehearsal,” the doctor tells Fields in a video exclusive to PEOPLE.

But Fields, 46, has no plans on skipping rehearsals.

“Are you kidding me right now? Please,” says Fields, in disbelief. “I’ve had two kids. Okay?”

Fields says she is “not worried” about the doctor’s recommendation and advises Farber not to take it easy on her account.

“I’m begging you, do not change your original vision for this dance or for the rest of the competition,” she tells him. “It would really disappoint me.”

“[If it were] anyone else, I feel like we’d be sitting out right now,” says Farber. “But she doesn’t want to stop. She wants to just keep going.”

Famous Dances Night on Dancing with the Stars airs Monday at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
