Alec Baldwin is out again after his recent hip replacement surgery.
Friday, Doctor Death The 65-year-old actor was seen walking around the streets of New York with a cane for the first time since his operation on May 30.
Baldwin used the gray and metal crutch on his left side and chose a stylish and casual look for his Big Apple walk. She paired a blazer in her right hand with a loose-fitting navy blue shirt and black tee with matching navy pants, and finished off her outfit with a pair of polished black loafers.
The actor’s trip came after he opened up about his “incredibly painful” recovery from surgery in a video posted to Instagram last week. “I had my hip replaced on Tuesday last week,” she began. “I had my left hip done five years ago in 2018 and the other five days ago.”
“The pain is slowly fading away… but it’s incredibly painful,” Baldwin wrote on Instagram Reel. “But as we always say in my house, ‘It’s the pain that will end the pain.’ This surgery was supposed to be done at least two years ago and I wandered around and limped and did myself no favors because the compensatory damage to your back, neck, feet and knees is not great.
In the video, the actor admitted that he struggled with having to “limp” for several years, but was unable to schedule the surgery and the required recovery time.
“I didn’t have time to work smart or do it in a planned way. I didn’t have 4-6 weeks to limit myself that way,” he continued. “Or my glucose issues affected it, so it was very difficult. We would set a date for surgery and I would fail my blood glucose test.
The actor’s wife, 39-year-old Hilaria Baldwin, announced her latest hip surgery news on Instagram last month. Sharing a photo of Baldwin recuperating in bed at home, she shared that her husband is going through “a very intense period of chronic pain”.
