Carpal Tunnel Surgery For Artist Todd Marinovich

Former NFL quarterback Todd Marinovich, who overcame drug addiction to become a successful artist, recently had carpal tunnel surgery, in an effort to save his new career.

According to TMZ:

Todd MarinovichTodd Marinovich is currently recovering from major surgery on his throwing hand (now his painting hand) — but the ex-NFL quarterback tells TMZ the operation saved his new career.

Todd has become a pretty successful artist ever since a drug addiction ruined his once-promising football career. But he almost lost everything — again — when he woke up one morning without feeling in his left hand back in August.

The 43-year-old tells us … he was diagnosed with a really nasty case of carpel tunnel syndrome … and it was so bad, he couldn’t even hold on to a dinner fork.

Eventually, doctors determined the only way to fix Todd’s hand was through surgery — so Marinovich went under the knife.

Todd says the ordeal was painful, but he’s on the road to recovery and already “painting through it.” His next project … a Walter Payton piece.

Good luck with your recovery!
