Weyburn's Liam Drake is now recovering from surgery to treat pectus excavatum, a condition of excess cartilage in the breastbone, which causes the sternum to concave. He underwent a 'minimally-invasive' procedure on Thursday, which involves placing metal rods into his chest to increase lung capacity and enhance his quality of life. Read more HERE.
Drake made it through his surgery on Thursday (photo below taken with the metal rods in place) but has been struggling due to the epidural not working for pain management.
"They finally agreed that the epidural wasn't doing anything so they ditched it and I actually got some rest last night," he shared today.
The metal rods will be part of Drake's chest for the next few years.
