Ex-Of Mice & Men vocalist Austin Carlile has given an update on his health & battle with Marfan Syndrome in an Instagram post – read in full below.
“Today’s view: Been inactive on Instagram (my “Facebook” is fake) lately because I have actually been inactive. Recently started another (hopefully final) spinal treatment here in Costa Rica.
This procedure is 1x a week for 2-3 months… each week a series of 12-24 shot injections into my spinal chord, muscle, & ligaments from my legs, up to hips, then, low and middle back, to repair all my ligaments in the area, plus weekly IV’S to go with it!
My team recently discovered that the ligaments in my body are deteriorating faster than expected and this has been a root of some of my problems and a lot of my PAIN. So I’m taking this next #MarfanSyndromeTreatment head on!
Will be a rough few weeks ahead but I have faith! God give me strength and lets go! I will be overcoming and recovering from this before seeing some of you THIS Summer!
Living with #MarfanSyndrome is tough, but we are stronger… ‘Marfans means dealing with constant daily pain, people dealing with it must have a full reserve of strength’ -Melissa Hormanski.”
In case you didn’t know, Carlile left Of Mice & Men last year.
