“Praise God for making my spinal surgery safe and successful,” he said in a statement as he went on to thank his doctors and surgeons who helped him all throughout the process.

However, he revealed that he may have had an infection caused by the operation and asked everyone to continue keeping him in their prayers as it is being addressed.

“Hindi pa tapos ang aking laban. I will be needing more prayers as my medical team addresses the accompanying infection,” he said. “Marami pong salamat sa lahat ng nagdasal at patuloy na nagdadasal para sa akin.”

Medina was revealed to have degenerative disc disease and spent three weeks in the hospital, unable to sit or stand, prior to his operation. His family made a post on his personal Instagram page asking for financial support at the time. “Due to the pandemic, our dad scarcely had any work, which siphoned his savings over the past two years. We are trying to help him as best as we can but it will be a long road to sufficient recovery for him,” the statement read. “We humbly appeal for your charitable help and prayers as our family navigates through helping him get back on his feet — literally and figuratively.”
