Carson Daly shares update with fans

On Friday, September 16, Carson Daly shared an x-ray of his spine on Instagram. He included a post-op update after undergoing his second surgery in three months. The Voice emcee joked that it was an “actual X-Ray photo” and not an image he Googled. Carson thanked the doctor who worked on him.

The x-ray appears to show a spacer in his spine. Per MedTronic, a spacer is an invasive implant that increases the height between the interspinous processes in the lower spine. Carson joked that it looked like something out of the nativity scene. He also shared how his first check-up went since having surgery.

“Hello. Quick update — I had my 1st post spine fusion surgery check-up today with @andrewhechtmd & everything looks great!” Carson Daly captioned the post. “Also, we found the missing pieces from our nativity scene!”

Speaks to Today Show co-hosts

Carson Daly also shared an update with his Today Show co-hosts earlier this week. He chatted with Savannah Guthrie, Hoda Kotb, Craig Melvin, and Al Roker virtually about his chronic pain. During the interview, Carson admitted that the surgery and recovery haven’t been fun. However, he feels much better than he’s ever felt.

“The first week was tough, just getting over the surgical pain,” Carson Daly said. “I’ve been in the downstairs bedroom, kind of avoiding the stairs.”

The television host has forced himself to get up every so often and take walks. He joked that he feels like Forrest Gump except that he can’t run just yet. Each day, Carson Daly gets “stronger” and he’s ready to get back to work, but he still “can’t put my pants on or tie my shoes.” The recovery will take several weeks to months.
