"Surgery was good last night," he captioned a photo from his hospital bed Wednesday. "Double fusion for the back - 10hrs."

"Thank everyone for their prayers," he followed up Thursday. "I shall be back up soon. This surgery was no joke."

Spinal fusion surgery essentially "welds" two or more vertebrae together to alleviate back pain. Sinbad didn't reveal the cause for his surgery, but the actor should be feeling better in the next few days.
