A-Rod uploads pics to Facebook of himself before and after hip surgery (photos)

New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left hip on Wednesday and it is believed that recovery from the procedure means that A-Rod will be out of the Bronx Bombers lineup until mid-July, sometime around the All-Star Break.

The surgery, performed by at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York by Dr. Bryan Kelly reportedly “went as planned and without complication,” according to a statement released by the facility.

But before the surgery, demonstrating he has a flair for the dramatic and an understanding how to ratchet up the tension, A-Rod uploaded a photo to Facebook (above) of himself moseying down a hospital hallway with the message, “Thanks for all the prayers & well wishes. I’ll admit I’m a little nervous, but I’m in great hands.” See? Even A-Rod can feel nervous at other times than when strolling up to the plate for a postseason at-bat.

But even better is that A-Rod uploaded a photo of himself to Facebook following surgery, in which he gives a thumbs-up and informs his followers and fans that “Surgery went well! The road to recovery officially begins … looking forward to the challenges ahead.”

Good to see. And while it is safe to assume that she was present to support her man, A-Rod’s girlfriend, former WWE Diva Torrie Wilson, is not pictured in the photo. Perhaps she is taking the photo. Or maybe Wilson was dispatched to A-Rod’s house to pick up his centaur paintings to spruce up the sparsely decorated hospital room.

Can’t help myself with that damned centaur painting reference. But think about it: If A-Rod were in fact a centaur, there would have been no hip surgery for him. Nope, A-Rod’s fate would have been much, much worse if that had been the case. Also: Centaurs would need to be real for that Glue Factory Scenario to play out. Obviously.
