Taking off to LA for the surgery right now. I have it at 830am, PUMPED!!! Thank u all so much for the well wishes. Much appreciated
UFC President Dana White is heading to California to undergo surgery on his left inner ear.
White suffers from Meniere's Disease, a disabling inner-ear disorder that can cause vertigo, ringing (tinnitus) and pressure in the ear and fluctuating hearing loss. There is no cure, but it can be treated.
White is scheduled to be admitted to Los Angeles' House Clinic on Tuesday, where White says Dr. John House will peel back his left ear in order to insert a plastic tube in the hope of reducing a series of crippling Meniere's disease attacks.
"They're going to cut my ear off," White told USA TODAY Sports. "My left ear, they're going to cut it off so they can get inside. They're going to insert a tube, and this surgery is pretty new – within the last year, I think, this surgery has come out. They have to get inside there to insert a tube, so they have to go in there and go through the hole. They insert a tube, and then they reattach the ear."
White said doctors have told him inserting the tube provides approximately a 70% chance he'll no longer have the attacks, which can often prove incapacitating.
And on another note of an mma figure going under the knife...

I don't know if the text shows with the pics, but tomorrow morning I will get my neck surgery at 7AM (Pacific). They will fuse three discs together in my neck which will make space for my nerves that are caught right now, and then hopefully I will get my strength back!
I will let you guys know when I am awake and able to post something!
Godspeed, you all are great!
Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.
