Veteran actor, Clem Ohameze has undergone a successful spinal cord surgery and is currently recovering.

Recall that the actor who cried out some months ago got financial help from Prophet Jeremiah Fufeyin which enabled him to go for surgery after he took to social media to call for help and prayers from Nigerians.

The actor was reportedly involved in an accident sometimes back and suffered an injury that had affected his lower limbs thereby restricting his movement.

In a short video posted online, the actor disclosed that the surgery will fix his cervical vertebrae and help him regain control of his limbs.

With the successful surgery, he can now walk well and take more roles in the Nollywood industry.

He thanked Nigerians for coming to his aid when it mattered.

The money is a donation from controversial preacher, Jeremiah Omoto Fufeyin, of Christ Mercyland Deliverance Ministry in Warri, Delta state.

A few weeks ago, Mr Ohameze went on social media to narrate his health condition to fans and urged them to pray as he was about to undergo a very “scary” procedure.

He said his predicament was as a result of his involvement in a car accident sometime ago.

“I was involved in a car accident, I was taken to the hospital, while I was being treated they discovered that my lower limb was kinda affected,” he said.

The actor further narrated details of his situation saying “Results of the x-ray showed that my cervical vertebrae 3 had collapsed on cervical vertebrae 4 thereby causing some kind of pressure on my spinal cord that was what caused the retardment of the lower limbs.”

The 56-year-old actor initially recovered after receiving treatment up until recently when he started experiencing difficulties in moving.

He said he was treated and placed on some kind of traction and discharged. “I got better then after a while I noticed I had some difficulty walking then went back to the hospital.”

Spine Surgery for Leg Pain

If most of the patient’s pain is leg pain (radiculopathy), the pain may be due to a pinched nerve. If the leg pain does not start to resolve with conservative treatment after 4 to 6 weeks, an imaging study (such as an MRI scan) may be recommended to determine whether or not there is nerve pinching (e.g. from a herniated disc).

If there is pressure on the nerve, then either injections or a lumbar decompression spine surgery to take pressure off the nerve may be recommended. Back surgery for a pinched nerve can usually be done with a minimally invasive approach, and will usually result in early return to normal function (1 to 3 weeks). The success rate for decompression spine surgery is high, with approximately 90% of patients experiencing good relief of the leg pain after the surgery.
