Telly star Gautam Rode recently underwent a back surgery and says he’s improving now.
Talking about his surgery, which took place at a private hospital in Gurugram, Gautam shared, “My L4-L5 soft-tissue got degenerated. There was a small tear in that and the soft tissue was coming out of that tear, causing me a lot of pain and trouble. The neurosurgeon took out 1/5th of that portion.”
Asked how he is feeling now, the actor said, “I am feeling better. I am feeling fine, but it will take a few weeks. The doctor has advised me physiotherapy so I am just concentrating on that. But I will be back in action very soon.”
However, the actor is slightly saddened with the fact that he will not be able to go to gym for a while now, an activity he loves doing.
“The doctor has asked me not to workout, which is a big lifestyle change for me. But that will be mostly for two months I think. I will not be able to lift weights which I love doing. I will try to keep myself in shape with diet, walking and physio.”
On the work front, Gautam was recently seen Akshaye Khanna starrer State of Siege: Temple Attack, while he is awaiting the release of his first digital series which is expected to stream on MX Player.
