Ryan Kesler just wanted to be part of the next social media challenge, but it sort of missed the mark on how it disgusted people.
The Anaheim Ducks star took to Twitter recently to join in on the newest social media craze, which is posting “my plans” versus what 2020 is currently doing to them due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Kesler posted a picture of him celebrating and then another of his hip resurfacing surgery he went through in 2019.
Hip resurfacing is a bone-preserving hip replacement that can provide pain relief and increase function in normal activities of daily living.
Kesler was not playing hockey in the 2019-20 season and was unsure if he was going to continue his career.
“At this point in my career, this surgery was the best option for my quality of life,” said Kesler. “The pain I was suffering has been greatly reduced since the procedure, and I’m grateful for that. While my playing future is unknown, I’m in a good place. I want to thank all the doctors and trainers as part of ‘Team Kesler,’ my teammates, my agent Kurt Overhardt, the Ducks organization, the fans, and most importantly, my family, for their support. I’m extremely appreciative of everyone that has helped me through the process. I look forward to spending more time with my family and doing everyday activities without pain.”
