    Carey Hart showed his more than one million Instagram followers a couple of X-rays from his neck this Saturday.

    The 46-year-old motorcycle racer, who is married to Pink, successfully had a disc surgically replaced in his neck two days prior.

    ‘Here is a look at the hardware put in my body. It’s the M6 disc that they used in my replacement,’ he explained in the caption of his X-ray album.

    ‘With the disc swap in my back it drastically helped on my scoliosis and position of my hips. The hardware you see in the bottom of my spine is my fusion from 2014 that is holding up great!!! Same w/ my neck. Dr. Bray said that it did wonders for my head/pelvis alignment,’ he added.

    Earlier that day he had posted a selfie video in which he could be seen enjoying a sunlit stroll after being discharged from the hospital Friday.

    ‘Two days post-op, got home late last night, feeling good, getting some range in my neck, out for my morning – doing about a mile and a quarter this morning,’ he said.

    Carey explained that he was ‘Feeling good,’ and was accompanied by one of his dogs during his walk. ‘All’s good!’ he added.

    He made sure to express his gratitude to his well-wishers as well as to his doctor for ‘for literally bolting me back together and ready to start kicking some butt. 

    A day earlier he had updated his fans by posting a video of himself sat in a hospital bed while wearing a gown. His neck had tubes coming out of the right side, and he had a bandage over the front right part of it.

    ‘I’m about three hours after post-op,’ Hart said. ‘Feel awesome, understandably, pains meds, anesthesia, all that stuff. Been up on my feet three times now. This one’s been a breeze, even the back one was pretty easy.’

    The Inked writer underwent surgery to replace a disc in his back last month. 

    Specifically, Hart had an M6 disc replacement — a procedure in which an artificial disc is placed in the spine that mimic’s its natural structure and movement.

    Hart also went on to thank the staff at DISC Sports & Spine Center for all their work and said he should be home soon. 

    ‘I got to stay the night tonight. I got a drain in my neck and then I’ll be out of here, on my way home, by morning time,’ the extreme sports star said. 

    He posted other photos keeping his followers updated on his condition including one where his foot was elevated and a Starbucks oatmeal sat in front of him with a Red Bull to the right of it. 

    He also showed a pictured he posted to his Snapchat story of himself holding a container of his own blood with text written on the post that ready, ‘Anyone want an organic Bloody Mary?’

    Hart previously said he had to get the surgeries because doctors thought he compression-fractured his lower spine ‘at least 10 to 12 times.’ 

    He previously thanked Pink for all her help during his surgeries saying, ‘To my amazing wife/nurse who has taken amazing care of me through all of this. I love you baby.’

    The pair share son Jameson, 4, and daughter Willow, 10.  

    Enduring a 30-year plus career in motocross, Hart has undergone at least eight procedures including a spinal surgery in 2014, an unspecified back procedure in 2019 and a rotator cuff surgery in August 2020.

    He told Rolling Stone in 2014 ‘I’ve broken everything you could imagine,’ but above all it’s his love for his craft that keeps him going.

    ‘I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been laying in the dirt, something broken, bone sticking out, just thinking “Why the f**k do I keep doing this?” But you go to the hospital, you get stitched up, or bolted back together, and you go home and heal, and eventually you start to forget the injury and start to miss your motorcycle.’

    Hart had previously said on the Boozed And Bruised podcast in 2017 that ‘he stopped counting his broken bones when he got into the eighties.’
