Pink’s husband Carey Hart shared a positive update with his Instagram fans on Thursday, revealing that he was feeling great following a spinal fusion surgery. 

‘Surgery went great!!!!! Already been up and out of my bed 3 times cruising the surgery center. Ended up fusing the vertebrae because the joint was a bit hammered,’ he wrote alongside a photo of himself in the hospital bed.

Earlier in the day Hart, 47, shared another photo of himself from the hospital shooting the camera a thumbs-up as he prepared for the procedure, one year after undergoing TWO surgeries to replace a disc in his neck and spine.

Good news! Pink’s husband Carey Hart shared a positive update on Instagram, revealing he was feeling great after a spinal fusion surgery: ‘Already been up and out of my bed 3 times’

Three hours after sharing a snap of himself on route to the hospital bright and early on Thursday morning, the former motocross racer thanked his more than one million Instagram followers for ‘all the well wishes.’ 

‘Nighty night!!!!!’ he captioned the selfie, which showed him laying down with a smile across his face and a red scrub hat over his head. 

While updating his fans on social media, the father-of-two revealed he was going to be taking a ‘lil forced nap’ to be ‘good as new.’ 

In October 2021, he raved that his disc replacement in his neck ‘drastically helped’ his ‘scoliosis and position of my hips.’

His latest two operations come after getting a M6 disc replacement — a procedure in which an artificial disc is placed in the spine that mimic’s its natural structure and movement.

Hart previously said he had to get the surgeries because doctors thought he compression-fractured his lower spine ‘at least 10 to 12 times’ over his 30-year plus career in motocross. 

In 2014, he told Rolling Stone: ‘I’ve broken everything you could imagine.’

‘I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been laying in the dirt, something broken, bone sticking out, just thinking ‘Why the f**k do I keep doing this?’ But you go to the hospital, you get stitched up, or bolted back together, and you go home and heal, and eventually you start to forget the injury and start to miss your motorcycle,’ he said.

Hart had previously said on the Boozed And Bruised podcast in 2017 that ‘he stopped counting his broken bones when he got into the eighties.’

The injuries have forced Hart to undergone at least ten procedures including a spinal surgery in 2014, an unspecified back procedure in 2019 and a rotator cuff surgery in August 2020. 

Meanwhile in November 2021, he supported his wife after she underwent hip surgery at The Steadman Clinic in Vail, Colorado.

The So What songstress credited Hart for his devotion in helping her recovery, saying ‘he brought me coffee in the shower, lugged around my 100 pound CPM contraptions every where I went, dried my tears, cooked me oatmeal, kept track of my meds, got me my phone charger, plugged in my compression machines, took my temp, made the bed, and talked me off the ledge.’ 

She went on to say that ‘life always reminds you that most setbacks are actually just pauses and opportunities to recalibrate and count your blessings.’

‘I’m impressed by those that face real, hard challenges, and alchemize their situation into something magical, or meaningful,’ she added. ‘It is humbling for a very independent person like myself to be rendered physically unable and dependent, even if for a couple of months.’
