MICK FOLEY HEALTH UPDATE

By Mike Johnson on 2014-08-27 09:28:50
WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley noted on his Facebook page that he's been dealing with extreme back pain to the point that he was forced to cancel a comedy show on 8/31 in Denver, Colorado.

The website for the club noted that Foley would be having "minor surgery."

Several days ago, Foley alluded to potential surgery on his Facebook page while writing about his health issues:

"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. "
