Mick Foley on Back Issues

Mick FoleyWWE Legend Mick Foley posted the following on his Facebook account, talking about his ailing back problems.


“I knew when I got involved with professional wrestling, participating in the style I chose to use, that back pains were just going to come with the territory.”

“From a 1994 disc herniation that had back specialists throwing around the term “partial paralysis”, to my struggles with sciatic nerve pain over the last 17 years, back pain has been pretty constant in my life. But after spending half of my family Disney World vacation in bed – literally not able to get out of bed, I realize I am going to have to do something. A couple years ago, a respected neurosurgeon told me that I simply had too many issues with my back – skeletal, neurological, etc., – and there was no one operation that was going to be the answer to relieving my pain. But as the Godfather told me once, “limpin ain’t easy” – and after 17 years of doing it, I think it’s about time I sought out a second opinion.”
