'Superstore' Actor Ben Feldman Reveals He Underwent Spinal Surgery
By Paige Gawley
Ben Feldman is recovering after surgery. The 40-year-old Superstore star took to Instagram on Wednesday to reveal that he underwent spine surgery earlier this week.
Feldman shared shots of himself in a hospital bed, posing with his doctor and recovering at home. He also hilariously included a screenshot of a Google search, which asked, "How much is too much stool softener?"
"So some Me news: on Monday, an incredible surgeon in Newport (dr Robert Bray) opened up my neck, drilled out some calcified bone & 2 sh**ty discs in my spine, popped in 2 artificial discs & sewed me back up," he wrote. "It was horrifying but I’m alive & lots of friends/family sending me food that I can swallow, which is a v underrated category of food (slippery)."
Feldman went on to praise his wife, Michelle Mulitz, and their 2-year-old son, Charlie, for helping him to recover in their own ways.
"@michellehelyn is an incredible (& patient) nurse & sometimes when she’s unavailable, Charlie will bring his toy dr bag up to my room & give me a 'shot,'" he said. "Anyway things are good."
