Days before Tiger Woods' former mistress Rachel Uchitel will reportedly go under brain surgery, the 40-year-old was spotted lifting a bench outside of her New York City children's boutique.

TMZ reports Uchitel will go under the knife in mid-September in an effort to treat Chiari (kee-AH-ree), a condition in which brain tissue extends into the spinal canal, pressing on the brain and forcing it downward, according to the Mayo Clinic website.

Uchitel was also spotted carrying bags out of her store with ease.

The boutique owner married former Penn State football player Matt Hahn after her affair with Woods. She had a daughter with Hahn in 2012 and the pair finalized their divorce last year, according to the New York Daily News.
