Joross Gamboa shared that he needs to undergo surgery due to his achilles injury.
On his Instagram page on Sunday, November 21, Joross shared a photo of himself in the hospital as he prepares for his operation.
"Getting ready for my Achilles operation! God bless everyone! Praying for a smooth operation and a quick recovery in Jesus Name! Also special thanks sa aking pinakamamahal na asawa @katz_gamboa sa pagpaparanas sakin ng 10⭐️ na pagaalaga! Labyu!" he posted.
According to webmd.com, the Achilles tendon "stretches from the bones of your heel to your calf muscles. It’s common for this tendon to get injured. It can be mild or moderate and feel like a burning pain or stiffness in that part of your leg. If the pain is severe, your Achilles tendon may be partly or completely torn."
On November 13, Joross shared via social media how he got injured. In an Instagram post, he relayed that he was playing basketball when it happened.
"Nagbasketball kami sa 3rd floor naglaro kaming 3vs3 tapos yung pagtakbo ko biglang may pumutok na malakas (may napigtas) alam niyo feeling ng may humampas ng dospordos sa binte malamang hindi basta parang ganun. Di masakit sa simula gulat lang akala ko nga may multo nun kasi walang tao sa likod ko. Tapos dahan dahan ng sumasakit taas ng sakong ko ayun napigtas na nga Achilles ko," he said.
The actor relayed that it was the same time when he was not able to do stretching well prior to playing basketball.
"Napaka importante talaga ng stretching sa simula. Eto lang ata yung time na ngalaro ako ng di nagtodo stretching kasi late kami dumating. Kaya sa inyong lahat magiingat kayo parati," he shared.
According to him, it will take around six months after the operation before he can fully recover.
"6 months recovery depende sa pagiging masunurin ko sa therapy. Basta ni lift up ko na lahat kay God kaya kahit ganito situation ko circumstances ko i still have Joy and Peace. Because of Jesus Christ my Lord and Savior! Godbless everyone!" he shared.
