Catherine Heigl joked that she was going bionic after putting metal plates around her neck.
The 42-year-old actress pays tribute to doctors and nurses who performed procedures to “protect her neck” and prevent “the most excruciating pain”.
Katherine, who shared snaps from her hospital bed and her own bed at home, wrote, “Okay… I am now a bionic !! Two titanium discs now sit around my neck, I can stand on my head for hours… I’m not going to try this, but give it a few months, I ‘ll blow your mind !!
“Thank you to the amazing doctors and care who saved me from the most excruciating pain I have ever experienced and given me a pain-free new life! I think they deserve a bigger voice that deserves thanks and praise, so I will give it to them!
“Thank you Thebackdoctorapp for giving me your time and attention to help me understand what it is like to be treated as a human being and what my expectations are and all my options.
“Thank you for your immense ability and skill and for protecting my neck! Thank you for your wonderful and compassionate care and attention to the Cedars at Mar Marina del Rey! ”
She added, “Going to surgery and hospital was always a little scary and you couldn’t have felt more comfortable or cared for!
“Thank you Thank you Thank you !!
“Oh, Happy Day from ST. Patrick! Obviously I had Irish luck today! “
Catherine was overwhelmed by the comments of fitness posts from famous fans and friends.
Catherine recently returned to our screens for Netflix’s Firefly Lane.
The streaming service appealed to fans to take a double take after Katherine’s new look showed off as a beauty, as the costume was snatched away from her gold locks.
