Joe Diffie is pain-free following back surgery. He told the “Dayton Daily News,” he went under the knife in March because of the pain caused by spinal stenonis, a narrowing of the spinal canal. He says, “It had been bothering me for a couple of years. It wasn’t just affecting my business, my music, but it was affecting my life with my kids. I couldn’t get out and walk around a zoo. I couldn’t stand up for more than about five minutes without my feet going completely numb. I was in excruciating pain but I’m good to go now.”
