Super 12 Treffers


Manuel was admitted to hospital on the 2nd of December 2014 for an operation. He will in recovery for 4 months. See his blog for details on his next show.

“After two months of hardly being able to walk as result of back pain, last week I went to see Dr. Johan Nel, the Spinal Orthopedic Surgeon at Pretoria East Hospital. He sent me for X-rays, M.R.I. and also an appointment with Dr. Kritzinger, the neurologist. The results are not good and left me flabbergasted as there is a lot of bone degeneration on my back. By now, I am also beyond Physio therapy. Some of the nerves on my left leg are already dying as a result of the pinching. I will undergo a 6 hour spinal surgery on the 2nd of December at Pretoria East Hospital. If I do not do the op, I can be paralyzed or worse, left incontinent.
This means ALL SHOWS CANCELLED from December right through to end of March 2015, including my Israel Tour in April. I will have 8 titanium screws put in, bone marrow for bone graft, cushions, fusion of lower vertebrae etc. I will have to lie flat on my back for 2 months and recuperation period another 2 months. This is a bummer and it is the last thing I expected and makes me stressed. I will finish all my concerts from now until 1st of Dec. on pain killers as I can now scarcely walk without them. Perhaps I need a total make over and complete reconditioning of the old ‘engine’. Old Age, wear and tear creeping in, I guess…”
