Shane Carwin's Back Surgery Successful

via i56.tinypic.com
For those asking @ShaneCarwin is having "Formintomy" on his C5, 6 & 7. Dr Chad Prusmack who is one of the best in the Country.

@ShaneCarwin is out of surgery and in the recovery room. No complications during surgery.

Surgery went well, it took just under 4 hours to complete. The nerve damage was worse than the MRI showed but they cleaned it up.

Due to his size he is still technically out. He was able to communicate that he has no numbness and pain. Very successful...

[UPDATE] - Shane Carwin on Shelf for 8-12 Weeks After Surgery Addresses Multiple Injuries according to MMA Fighting:
Given the 8-12 week no-contact timeframe and a traditional 6-8 week training camp, it seems likely that Carwin won't be back fighting in a UFC Octagon anytime before spring 2011. But the best news Carwin received is that his fight career should resume with no restrictions once he is fully rehabilitated.
