Fans are sending well wishes to One Life to Live alum David Fumero (ex-Cristian Vega), who is keeping positive after a painful-sounding medical procedure.
The actor took to Instagram to reveal that he just completed his fourth cervical disc replacement, about which he jokes, "More metal in my body means I'm closer to becoming Wolverine! My ultimate motivator!"
Fumero goes on to thank his doctor, Todd Lanman, who he calls a savior for helping him get better and return to his regular routine.
"Looking forward to training and getting back to optimal conditioning. I wouldn't have that choice if it weren't for you," he praises. "I'm so blessed and lucky and grateful! Peeps, take care of your spine! And if you're dealing with any chronic issues make sure you look this guy up!"
David Fumero played the role of OLTL's Cristian Vega from 1998 until the soap's cancellation in 2011. His other credits include Power, NCIS: Los Angeles, Chicago Fire, and Brooklyn Nine-Nine. He is married to actress Melissa Fumero (ex-Adriana Cramer, OLTL), with whom he shares two children.
