Al Roker Needs To Get His Bicep Re-Attached After Yet Another Surgery

By Lechette Walker

The “Today Show” was missing the popular, weather man Al Roker on Wednesday. Roker explained that he experienced unexpected setbacks after a shoulder surgery. Rocker at 59 years old, had his bicep reattached by surgeons that extended his recovery. He tweeted to his fans while assuring him that he was appreciative and recovering after surgery.

‘Thanks for well wishes. A lot more damage to the rotator than they thought and my bicep had to reattached,’ he wrote.

‘Rotator cuff repair this am. Thanks to Dr. Riley Williams and his team, back to pitching middle relief for the Yankees before you know it.

Rocker has been under the knife several times throughout his weatherman career. The gastric bypass surgery was a big headline back in 2002 when Rocker had the weight loss procedure. As a result of the surgery he dropped off 100 lbs. with diet and exercise. He experienced other surgeries that included knee replacement and a back operation.

He is expected to undergo physical therapy on his arm that will last for a coupler of weeks. As his recovery goes forward, it is expected for him to have a shoulder sling as he heals. There has not been any other details released about his operation but we hope his recovery goes well.

“Thanks to everyone for all the well wishes. As soon as I can, PT for my rotator cuff,” said Roker.

Roker appeared on the Today show on Friday morning telling his colleagues that he feel “pretty good”. He has plans to be back on the air on Monday wearing his sling. He also stated that he got a call from Vice President Joe Biden on Thursday.  He had jokes that showed his humor stating “We’re moving ever so closer to getting the vice-president to come to the 9 o’clock hour. Even if I have to rip my arm off.”

  • Toni: It should cost people with mental instability their gun licenses in every state, not just NY. What about KY???? Add KY into people with guns that they should not be able to have them. View Post
  • Lorna: OUT OF DARKNESS THE LAST STAND! I do like this new tour idea of yours Paul. Like so many millions of others have stated, you have lifted my spirits on a number of occasions. I am not funny unless I am just talking having a conversation with people. So it is hard for me to think of a joke but, my mother and dad are from new orleans I heard you talk about your birthplace many times. I also think you are a Leo by your astrological sign. You Leo's are something else, HAHAHA, the Lion, the fire the laughter and that courageous and funny personality naturally draws people to you, it's the fire, in your heart and spirit. Sent my prayers up to the one and only God many times for you and will continue. I feel your fire. It makes me feel as if we are friends, like I know you, I guess that is how people truly get to know each other, through their spirits. Blessing, and peace of mind , Your friend you never met, Lorna View Post

  • Truth North: As a mother and black woman, I don't want to jump on the bandwagon pertaining whether black children are targeted or not because a lot of white children have it too. I just want to address the fact that a lot of mothers are in dark because they didn't realize that their child got there 1st vaccination at birth. In the hospital your child get a treatment for their eyes for stds, a shot in the leg for vitamin k so that their blood will clot and hepatitis b. The point I'm making is even when you state that something was always wrong with your child you may not even realize that the vaccination damage may have started from birth so your child may not have a fighting chance to have established any behavior that was normal for them. The other thing is for all the parents on the fence about whether to vaccinate or not and you are leaning towards vaccinations then go back to the old schedule where you start at 3 or 4 years old and remember vaccinations are supposed to be given to healthy kids. Do not give vaccinations to a child with a cold, ear infection, small pimples on their faces it could be bacteria, white patches on their tongues -thrush, blotches on their bodies eczema, fever even if it is a persistent low grade fever. If your child is always hot but not alarming to the point where it is a fever it is still not the time for the shots because it means that there body is fighting of an infection. I just feel mothers need to know what to look for and make educated decisions. View Post
