We haven’t heard a lot from Of Mice & Men since singer Austin Carlile left the band at the end of last year. And while it was initially said that he’d left OM&M because he couldn’t sing due to Marfan Syndrome, a few months ago, he claimed that it was “creative differences,” and Carlile would continue making music that he wanted to make. And while Of Mice & Men are continuing on without him and will play their first show without him later this month, Carlile is continuing to be treated for his disease.
In a post on his Instagram page, he stated that he’s in Costa Rica undergoing a two to three month spinal treatment. It sounds like a pretty intensive treatment, with him getting 12 to 24 shots into his spinal cord, muscles from his legs to his hips and lower and middle back. Ouch. Here’s hoping things go well for him.
Today’s view: Been inactive on Instagram (my “Facebook” is fake) lately because I have actually been inactive. Recently started another (hopefully final) spinal treatment here in Costa Rica. This procedure is 1x a week for 2-3 months… each week a series of 12-24 shot injections into my spinal chord, muscle, & ligaments from my legs, up to hips, then, low and middle back, to repair all my ligaments in the area, plus weekly IV’S to go with it! My team recently discovered that the ligaments in my body are deteriorating faster than expected and this has been a root of some of my problems and a lot of my PAIN. So I’m taking this next #MarfanSyndromeTreatment head on! Will be a rough few weeks ahead but I have faith! God give me strength and lets go! 🕊🕊🕊 I will be overcoming and recovering from this before seeing some of you THIS Summer! ☺😉 /// Living with #MarfanSyndrome is tough, but we are stronger… “Marfans means dealing with constant daily pain, people dealing with it must have a full reserve of strength” -Melissa Hormanski 💪❤ I love you guys!!! And thank you for the support as always and I’m sorry I haven’t been able to reach out to you all lately, excited to share more about this Summer though! 😉 ❤ Un agradecimiento especial a todos en Costa Rica que me ayudan ORAN por mí el vendrá pronto!
