It was reported earlier that Hulk Hogan underwent nine hours of surgery last Tuesday for a problem with his spinal cord that had been plaguing him for the majority of the past year. The procedure required Hogan to have his spine rebuilt and left him with graphic puncture wounds on his back.

Responding to a fan today on Twitter, the TNA Wrestling Superstar explained the operation was to fix a problem with his spinal cord.

"...its all good my brother,I had to get my spinal cord straightened out. Much respect," he wrote.

He added that doctors gave him a drug by mistake, which lengthened the ordeal to eleven hours.

Regarding the possibility of one final match following his latest procedure, Hogan replied to a fan, "Never say never."

Hogan posted pictures from his most recent surgery, which are below:
