London: World wrestling champion Hulk Hogan is in "a lot of pain" after undergoing his second back operation in the past two months.

The celebrity wrestler and reality TV star injured his back picking seashells last month and underwent a surgery Wednesday to help ease the excruciating pain, reports tmz.com.

The former fighter has had another procedure in a Florida hospital to have a spinal cord stimulator fitted into his back. The device, which is inserted under the skin, sends electric currents through the body to alleviate pain.

Hogan, who has undergone several back surgeries throughout the years, is said to be "upbeat" about the latest treatment and is expected to return home soon.
