Shemar Moore is recovering from a surprise medical condition, and he just updated fans on social media about what happened.
In a new uploaded video to InstagramTHE Criminal minds alum revealed that he recently underwent surgery to correct bunions on his left foot. Sitting on a couch next to her podiatrist Dr. Robert J. Joseph II, Shemar appeared to be in good spirits as he showed off the bandages helping him heal from the procedure. Dr. Joseph further noted to their account that the actor needed the operation because one of his toes was tucking inwards and couldn’t bend.
“The good thing is Shemar Moore in the building,” he said in the clip released May 15. “God and my mom blessed me with a lot of things. But from ankles to feet, I was all f—– – up. But, Dr. J. is about to make me a foot model . ”
As the CRUSH is known for his work in high-profile action television shows, fans immediately became concerned for Shemar’s well-being. They flooded her Instagram with kind messages, wishing her well as she recovered.
“Recovering from foot surgery isn’t easy. Lots of pain. Sending you love! 💓,” one person wrote in the comments. “Get better and take care and relax ❤️❤️❤️❤️,” another added. “Ouch!!! Sorry to send you healing hugs ❤️🩹!” another follower replied.
Shemar’s latest news comes after a whirlwind cancellation turned renewal for CRUSH season 7. Fortunately, he will have some time off to improve, as there is currently no exact date when he should start filming again.
As for his recovery time, the documents published by the Cleveland Clinic indicates that most patients who undergo bunion correction recover for at least six weeks, up to 3 months, while their bones heal. Shemar and others who have had the procedure will likely need to use crutches, scooters or a walker to keep the weight off their recovering foot; many doctors recommend physical therapy to help regain full movement over time. Usually, after three months, most can return to regular activities — but swelling can occur up to nine months after the procedure is complete, according to the Cleveland Clinic.
I wish Shemar a speedy recovery!
