The ‘Back to the Future’ actor is using every tool available to avoid another mishap as he can’t afford anymore fall after suffering from broken cheek, hand, shoulder, arm and elbow.
AceShowbiz –Michael J. Fox opened up about a nightmare year in which he sustained painful injuries including a broken arm and elbow. The “Back to the Future” star – who is living with Parkinson’s disease – has struggled as the past 12 months have been difficult after he broke his hand and came down with an infection which caused balance issues and led to a number of falls which left him with more breaks and fractures.
“I broke my cheek, then my hand, then my shoulder, had a replacement shoulder put in and broke my [right] arm, then I broke my elbow. I’m 61 years old, and I’m feeling it a little bit more,” he told PEOPLE magazine.
The actor even admitted his sunny disposition took a hammering and he “got cranky.” Michael added, “I was never really a cranky guy, but I got very cranky and short with people. I try to nip it in the bud. I always think of these aides who work with me. And I often say to them, ‘Whatever I say, just imagine I said ‘please’ at the beginning and ‘thank you’ at the end… “
The actor went on to confirm he’s finally feeling better as most of his injuries have healed, but he’s doing everything he can to avoid any more falls. He added, “I’m coming through where the last of my injuries are healing up; my arm is feeling good.”
“Life is interesting. It deals you these things … The whole mission is, Don’t fall down. So whatever works to not fall down, whether it’s a walker or a wheelchair, a cane, a guy with a belt around my waist holding onto it – I use all those tools.”
