Tom Hanks recorded own elbow surgery
Los Angeles: Actor Tom Hanks recorded his elbow surgery on camera, and he also displayed his humorous side in the video.
He underwent a procedure to relieve bursitis, a build-up of fluid, in his elbow, and he decided to record the process, reports eonline.com.
"My elbow is being drained," the two-time Oscar winner, lying on his stomach, said by way of setting the scene as his doctor approached with a syringe. "What does it look like?"
"Red," the doctor replied. "Red stuff," Hanks echoed. "Hey, I don`t feel a thing."
The doctor then got another syringe, said Hanks in the video.
"Two syringes! How `bout that? Double-barreled. Look at the fill-up. Look at that, baby! There you go...Yowzas (sic).
"Is it blood, or is it just bloody?" Hanks inquired. The doctor said that it was just `bloody`.
"I had bursitis," Hanks explained.
