Sinbad is currently in recovery after a 10 hour double fusion back surgery. No word on the exact cause for his operation but here’s some insight from Spine Health, a resource site for back pain, on what may have happened to the comedian.
“…Spinal fusions are a common and necessary procedure to treat many types of spinal pathology, such as scoliosis or other types of deformity, for treatment of low back pain from lumbar degenerative disc pathology this type of procedure remains controversial.”
The 58-year-old is still in great spirits. Following his operation he tweeted, “Surgery was good last night…Thank everyone for their prayers. I shall be BACK up soon.This surgery was no joke.”
