Suzanne Somers has undergone neck surgery after suffering a fall.
The 73-year-old actress was recovering from a fractured hip when she and her husband Alan Hamel both took a tumble down their stairs, leaving her in an “intense amount of pain” and requiring an operation.
She wrote on Instagram: “Thank you so much for all of your concern while Alan and I took a break from our normal schedule. As most of you know, I have been struggling for the better part of the year with a fractured hip, and then Alan and I took an unfortunate fall while coming down the stairs at our home. I had an intense amount of pain after the fall that was not resolving – even after having tequila! After several scans, it was determined I had 2 vertebrae out of place which was causing pressure on nerves and creating that tremendous pain.
“The good news is that I had neck surgery to correct these issues and now I am on the mend! I need a bit more time to recover before I can join you again at the bar for our virtual cocktail parties. In the meantime, we will keep the sales going on our site. Watch for posts and special announcements on SuzanneSomers.com, and my accounts on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. (sic)”
The ‘Three’s Company’ star thanked her fans for their support during this time.
She added: “As always, I so appreciate your love and support. Be back soon! Love, Suzanne (sic)”
Suzanne recently admitted she had to spend six weeks in bed at her home in Palm Springs after fracturing her hip earlier this year.
