Looking back at the last time he injured his back, he shared, “Last time I lost 50 pounds and was taking large amounts of pain meds to try and help the pain. Truthfully those meds really affected my mental and physical state and changed who I was. Last time I hurt my back it took me a year and a half to recover.”
Tarek went on to explain, “As of today I can barely walk...I honestly can't even believe this is happening, I feel like it's a bad dream that I will wake up from. I will be truthful and say I'm very down because of this. It is going to take a lot of positivity and strength to go through this a second time. I will stay positive and I will fight to get healthy again. I appreciate all the support. T.”
