The online gossip news site, TMZ, posted an entry today saying that Hulk Hogan was “upbeat” after a “painful, painful” back surgery. The back surgery implanted an electronic stimulator to alleviate his chronic back pain. Here is the report from TMZ:
Hulk Hogan just underwent yet another back surgery yesterday — but even though Hulk is currently in “a lot of pain” … he says he’s confident this procedure finally did the trick.
TMZ has learned Hulk — who recently re-injured his back collecting seashells — had a spinal chord stimulator inserted into his back during a “very, very painful” procedure at a Florida hospital.
A spinal chord stimulator is a device that is inserted below the skin, and uses electric currents to alleviate the effects of chronic pain.
Sources close to Hulk tell TMZ he’s “upbeat” about the SCS — and hopes he’ll be allowed to go home soon.
