    Default Melissa Gilbert excuses dancing with a broken back

    MELISSA GILBERT TRAUMA


    Photo by: splash news online

    Little House on the Prairie star MELISSA GILBERT will undergo a potentially dangerous surgical procedure to repair her broken back.

    Gilbert, 46, recently wrapped the musical stage version of the TV classic in which she played Ma and is best known for playing Laura Ingalls in the long running series but now her greatest challenge is upon her!.

    The ENQUIRER has learned that Gilbert had suffered back pain during the run of the musical but didn't consult a neurosurgeon until the show's run ended.

    "He came in and said, 'Your back is broken, and it has been for months,'" Gilbert confirmed.

    "I sort of was in shock for a while.

    "I thought doing a musical at 46, playing a woman in her late 20s, early 30s was amazing enough. But doing it with a broken back buys me a little more street cred."

    The brave star is to go under the knife July 22 to replace a disc with a plastic implant.

    Docs will also fuse a vertebra in her lower spine.

    How Melissa suffered the back-breaking injury is unknown.

    I wouldn't wish back problems or back surgery on many people. It's brutal.

    I'm just surprised that she doesn't know how she did it, most people remember a fall or bump.

    Oh I have a broken back too.

    I used to be active as a teen, gymnastics cheerleader, sex, the usual. Had two babies.

    fast forward a decade and half, and I am in the dr office complaining of back pain (ever since the birth of my youngest I kept thinking the epidural needle messed me up cause that is exactly where it has hurt all these years) and the dr was looking at the xrays.

    He asked me when I broke my back.

    I was like, WHAAAAAAAAAA????

    Anyway the pain comes from the scar tissue /muscle growth back around the cracked vert.

    Why did I never know before hand?

    People told me my back hurt because I was lazy fat, all in my head, etc. And until I went to the dr that day I had spent my adult life without health insurance.

    So it happens, glad to read I am not alone!!

    ETA I have no clue how it happened.

    That's a serious type of surgery which one of my best friends had done. My friend had two synthetic discs replaced in her back and it was not successful. She is now in constant pain and on round-the-clock painkillers for the rest of her life.

    I also have back problems and wouldn't wish it on anybody.
