Calum Von Moger is recovering from surgery to fix fractures in his spine.
It is nearly two weeks after Calum Von Moger suffered a fall after jumping out of a second story window. Now, he is in stable condition after undergoing spinal surgery to fix fractures in his back, according to the New York Post.
Von Moger was in a coma following his fall because of free fluid in the brain and swelling. Doctors believed it was dangerous to pull him out of this coma because of the trauma that was suffered. After the fall, Von Moger received a large number of cuts from the glass and suffered spinal injuries due to the impact. He was rushed to the ICU where he spent time before surgery.
According to the report, Von Moger is in stable condition but has a long road of recovery ahead. He is not paralyzed to this point and will require a large amount of physical therapy to be able to get strength in his spine.
