Junior Sisk on the mend

A post-op Junior Sisk, shortly after his spinal cord surgeryJunior Sisk has had a rough couple of weeks since his spinal cord surgery on February 12. He came through the surgery just fine, but had a tough few days in the immediate aftermath with pain and swelling.

The surgery was to relieve pressure on a nerve that was causing him some pain and discomfort in his right hand. Doctors typically enter through the throat when they do this procedure, but given the fact that Junior is a singer, extra caution was required, and they went through the back of his neck – hence the longer than usual recovery time.

But all is now well, Junior is feeling much better, and without the hand problems that started this journey earlier in the month.

To show everyone he is OK, he shot this video on his phone this afternoon.


Junior Sisk & Rambler’s Choice will be hitting the road next week for a busy Spring and Summer tour season, starting with the Lake Havasu festival in Arizona.
