Red Sox pitcher, Bobby Jenks, recently discussed with reporters a serious medical issue that occurred after having surgery in early December.
According to Jenks, he had a surgery scheduled at Masachusetts General Hospital in order to have bone spurts removed from his spine. Jenks reportedly had four bone spurts on his spine and only two were scheduled to be removed.
During the surgical procedure, one that was not supposed to be touched, was partially removed. This left an incision on his spine that he was unaware of. Two and half weeks later, Jenks began to suffer from serious migraines and on Dec. 30, the pain was so unbearable, he returned to the hospital where he was told the second incision was now infected.
Jenks had to undergo emergency surgery that day. Now, because he has two surgeries on such a sensitive area of the body, Jenks does not know if he will be able to pitch this year. Jenks has also lost 50 pounds due to the ordeal and has been discussing legal action with his representatives.
