Popular television actor Gautam Rode underwent a back surgery last week and is recuperating now. Informing about his surgery, which took place at a private hospital in Gurugram.
Gautam said, “My L4-L5 soft-tissue got degenerated. There was a small tear in that and the soft tissue was coming out of that tear, causing me a lot of pain and trouble. The neurosurgeon took out 1/5th of that portion.”
Asked how is he feeling now, the actor replied: “I am feeling better… I am feeling fine, but it will take a few weeks. The doctor has advised me physiotherapy so I am just concentrating on that. But I will be back in action very soon.”
However, Gautam is a little upset with the fact that he will not be able to lift weights for a while now, an activity that he enjoys doing.
“The doctor has asked me not to workout, which is a big lifestyle change for me. But that will be mostly for two months I think. I will not be able to lift weights which I love doing. I will try to keep myself in shape with diet, walking and physio,” he shared.
On the work front, Gautam’s latest release is the film “State of Siege: Temple Attack” which released digitally last month.
The actor is awaiting the release of his first digital series which is expected to air on MX Player.
