Relief pitcher for the Red Sox undergoes emergency surgery

Posted on March 1st, 2012 No Comments

Bobby Jenks is happy to be alive today after a surgical error almost cost him his life. In December 2011, Jenks scheduled back surgery in order to take out two bone spurs that had developed on his spine. The Red Sox player had four bone spurs on his spine, but had decided to only remove the top two spurs during the surgery.

Due to the error of one of the surgeons, a third spur was semi-removed from his spine before the opening was sewn shut. No one notified him of the protruding spur, and he returned home to begin the recovery process. Jenks started developing severe headaches and back pain, accompanied with spinal fluid leakage.

After two weeks, the pain became too intense, and he was taken to the emergency room. Doctors at the hospital instantly noticed the surgical error, and admitted Bobby for emergency surgery. He had developed a serious infection in his incision and his spine due to the error. He is working on rehabilitation and is eager to return to the pitcher’s mound this season.
