RALEIGH: Governor Roy Cooper underwent an elective procedure to repair a herniated disc that was causing lower back pain on Monday, May 6. The governor is alert and resting, reading bills and directing staff. The procedure took place at UNC Rex Hospital in Raleigh.
“I guess this is what happens after too many sit-ups. I’ll be checking out tomorrow and I look forward to resuming my trips to every corner of our state,” said Governor Cooper on Monday.
Following the procedure, Governor Cooper has been in continuous contact with staff and Cabinet secretaries.Share:
