Kurt Angle has shared that his recent back surgery “definitely worked” and that his recovery is going well.

He made the comments on the latest edition of ‘The Kurt Angle Show’ (subscription required for early access).

Angle was scheduled for surgery on Tuesday, March 21st to remove calcium deposits and bone chips from his lower back.

Ahead of the surgery, he commented:

I have a nerve going down my leg and it’s bothering me and there’s pain in my lower back and so they’re gonna clean all that stuff out, take the bone chips out and the calcium and stuff like that. So he said I should be good to go after that. A lot of damage to my back but it’s not to the point where I need fusion. 

In the post-surgery update that he provided, he said (transcript courtesy of Ringside News):

I think it actually worked. I don’t know yet, but I don’t have the pain going down my legs, so the operation definitely worked.

I’m hoping that the pain in my back will subside, and hopefully it will in the next few days, and then I’ll feel really good about it. The doctor did a great job. He really did. I was having problems with my legs and the nerves going down my legs, and that’s all gone, so I’m good with that.
