“Well…I am now bionic!! Two titanium discs now inhabit my neck and I can probably stand on my head for like hours…I’m not gonna try it just yet but give me a few months and I’ll blow your mind!!”

Heigl shared photos of herself on Instagram showing her neck brace, hospital bandage, and X-rays, which display the two titanium discs implanted. The mother of three expressed gratitude to her medical team for alleviating her pain but did not elaborate on the nature of her injuries.

She said:

“I am so deeply, deeply grateful to the incredible Dr’s and care team that saved me from the most excruciating pain I have ever experienced and blessed me with a new pain free lease on life! I really feel like they deserve a big giant shoutout of gratitude and appreciation so I’m gonna give it to them!” 

The former Grey’s Anatomy star continued:

@thebackdoctorapp thank you for treating me like a human being and giving me so much of your time and attention to help me truly understand what to expect and what all my options were. Thank you for saving my neck and for your incredible talent and knowledge! Thank you for your amazing and kind care.”

On March 13, 2021, the actress finally revealed that she had traveled from her home in Utah to Los Angeles to treat a ruptured disc in her neck—the first time she had done so since the outbreak began. Heigl posted two videos on Instagram showing her spouse, musician Josh Kelley, urging her to get well.

In one post, she wrote, “This is definitely the guy you want by your side during a health crisis.”
