Hey guys, this is not a repost, I'm back in the hospital preparing for another surgery about two months ago from a hard fall home that gives me an intervertebral disc tormenting my neck, so today I'm doing a level 3 to 3 cervical spine fusion. Dr says this disc pushes very hard against my spinal cord, so surgery is definitely needed. Get a second opinion within days, except for two different spine surgeons, and both said the same thing to me, and I had to undergo surgery in the next few days, so here's a prayer for your boy: #yeahbuddy #lightweightbaby #itstillaintnothingbutapeanut # musclepower
After the last operations last year, Coleman was unsure if he would ever w could run again. In a typical Coleman manner, he said, "But I'll do my best." After this surgery, he returned relatively quickly to the gym, but only for a light cardio.
We will continue to keep you informed about Colemans health as the situation develops.
