“Flip or Flop” star Tarek El Moussa has hit another bump in the road where his health is concerned — but he’s determined to overcome it.

El Moussa, who in the past has battled two different forms of cancer, took to Instagram on Monday to detail a shoulder injury that has put his workout routine on ice and took away “all that hard work” he put into his physical fitness.

“THIS SUCKS!!!! I worked so hard to get in shape and about two months ago I hurt my shoulder and haven’t been able to work out since!!” the HGTV star wrote. “It’s amazing how two short months can take away all that hard work!!!”

Despite the injury, the reality TV star added that he was determined to mend his shoulder and get back on track.

“So…there is one thing I know! I’m working on fixing my shoulder and I’m more motivated than ever to get out there and go after it again,” he wrote. “We will always have setbacks In life but in order to succeed we must never stop fighting and never give up!! Life is about overcoming obstacles and believing in yourself!! Now go out there, set some goals, and accomplish something great! #motivationmonday!”

El Moussa, who co-stars with his estranged wife Christina El Moussa on “Flip or Flop,” was diagnosed with cancer after a registered nurse emailed the show’s production company in 2013 to suggest that El Moussa have a nodule on his thyroid checked out by a doctor.

In addition to the thyroid cancer, El Moussa was diagnosed with testicular cancer.

In January, the reality TV star informed fans that he was still cancer-free.
