Katherine Heigl is now “bionic” after undergoing neck surgery this week.
The “Firefly Lane” star shared photos Wednesday on social media of herself in a brace after getting two titanium disks in her neck.
“Well…I am now bionic!! Two titanium disk now inhabit my neck and I can probably stand on my head for like hours…I’m not gonna try it just yet but give me a few months and I’ll blow your mind!!” Heigl joked.
The 42-year-old added how “grateful” she is for the doctors, nurses, and care team “that saved me from the most excruciating pain I have ever experienced and blessed me with a new pain free lease on life!”
Heigl didn’t reveal what caused her injury but did include the X-rays of her ordeal.
Katherine Heigl and her husband Josh Kelley married in 2007.
The former “Grey’s Anatomy” actress previously hinted she was having a “health crisis” last Friday when she posted a video of herself and her husband, musician Josh Kelley, at the hospital.
“First trip since the start of the pandemic is back to LA to deal with a herniated disk in my neck,” Heigl wrote. “Thank God for @joshbkelley for not only coming with me to hold my hand but for providing me with some very much needed comedic relief! I mean…only Josh can or would harmonize with the coffee maker!”
“This is definitely the guy you want by your side during a health crisis,” she added.
Kelley and Heigl married in 2007 and have three kids together: Joshua Bishop, 4, Adalaide Marie Hope, 8½, and Naleigh Mi-Eun, 12.
