Ben Orum (All Shall Perish, Oblivion, Etc.) Recovering From Neck Surgery


Ben Orum of All Shall Perish, Oblivion, etc. fame recently underwent some substantial neck surgery and is currently on the mend. He had the following to share of the procedure earlier today, February 26th:

“Over the last 3 years I’ve had shooting electrical pains down my left arm and my fingers on my left hand have become completely numb (cervical radiculopathy). after two MRIs we discovered a pinched nerve in my neck with my discs almost completely eroded at my c5-c7 with severe spinal stenosis on top of this.

I wasn’t comfortable sitting, standing, laying down but worst of all, picking up a guitar was almost impossible for me and that was very emotional.

I decided it was finally time for neck surgery to fix it. Yesterday they replaced two of my cervical discs with artificial discs, and I’m happy to report I am already feeling relief. Time to slow down a bit and recover..

Send good vibes, Love you all.”
