Al Roker “Feeling Great” After Undergoing Emergency Carpal Tunnel Surgery



NBC’s Today show weatherman Al Roker has revealed he is “feeling great” after undergoing emergency carpal tunnel surgery. Roker was whisked into surgery to fix a thumb issue that suddenly emerged during rehearsals for his Broadway debut in Waitresses, according to People.
“It had just gotten progressively worse to the point where Thursday, I lost use of my thumb during rehearsals,” Al revealed on Today. The sudden surgery wasn’t enough to keep Al away from his day job though – he was back on the Today set the very next day, sporting a bandage on his left wrist and hand. He will also be hitting the stage as Ol’ Joe in Waitresses when he makes his theater debut on Friday.
