A-Rod, via Facebook: “Surgery went well!”

736546_516174725080808_248109100_oWe know that Alex Rodriguez had arthroscopic left hip surgery yesterday, but there’s an interesting side note in the way that he has apparently embraced social media. The Yankees third baseman posted the accompanying photo of himself on Facebook with the caption, “Surgery went well! The road to recovery officially begins … looking forward to the challenges ahead.”

The Yankees said that Rodriguez’s left hip surgery, performed by Dr. Bryan Kelly at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York, went as expected and there were no complications. His expected recovery time is six months.

Before the procedure, A-Rod also posted a photo of himself walking through the halls of the hospital with the caption, “Thanks for all the prayers & well wishes. I’ll admit I’m a little nervous, but I’m in great hands.”
