Of Mice & Men vocalist Austin Carlile has been back in the hospital of late, this time undergoing surgeries that he expects will fix the multiple tears that have developed in his spine. Carlile, who has been dealing with the connective tissue disorder known as Marfan Syndrome, recently bowed out of touring with his band when the pain continuing to perform became too intense. After returning to the U.S. to visit with doctors, it was revealed that he would need multiple surgeries to fix several tears in his spine.

Carlile revealed in a new posting that he just finished the second of the surgical procedures. The singer has remained upbeat throughout the process and he reveals that the second operation proved successful and that he even spent some time on his feet. The vocalist accidentally snapped a photo of his leg, but used the picture to deliver his latest good news. The posting can be viewed and read below:

The first procedure, which took place earlier in October, was able to fix one of the tears in his mid-spine area caused by a bludgeoned disc tearing through the dural encasing it. As previously stated, Of Mice & Men had been on tour in Europe when the singer's physical issues came to light. They bowed out of the remainder of their European trek. The band had been out in support of their Cold World album. The song "Real" is the current single from the album.
