David Spade is on the mend after having surgery because of a double hernia — which does not sound fun at all!
Apparently what happened was that he started filming Grown Ups 2 and noticed something was off about his abdomen, or 'wiener town' as he calls it, so they admitted him to the hospital right away.
Here's what he says about it:
"It's not the sexiest story, but I had a double hernia… I was doing that Grown Ups stuff, we did a sequel this summer, and I got back and I was a little beat up, and there was something going on around wiener town (groin area). There were some sort of bumps and bruises… and I'm scared to go to the doctor because you have to take your pants off. It's a guy thing…
"But I did go in there and… he's feeling around, he's like, 'There's a hernia there,' and he's like, 'And you actually have another one over here.' And he goes, 'You got to go right in (to surgery).'"
That's gotta be terrifying!
Apparently the best part was getting his balls shaved, though, so not all was lost in the process:
"I don't know whose job it is (to do that). An intern?… and I go, 'Is this necessary?' They didn't tell me… So I get up and then they go, 'Do you know what a catheter is sir?… It's supposed to help with number one (peeing) after an operation… Jam it in and you go home.' So I put it in… It was a bad scene… But I'm fine, and that's the point of the story, I made it guys."
Well, we're glad you're okay David! For sure!
We wonder, though — was there not like a huge amount of pain before you went, or was it just the look of things that prompted you to go??
