Hulk Hogan -- More Back Surgery, More Pain

10/7/2010 6:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Hulk Hogan just underwent yet another back surgery yesterday -- but even though Hulk is currently in "a lot of pain" ... he says he's confident this procedure finally did the trick.

Hulk Hogan back surgery.
TMZ has learned Hulk -- who recently re-injured his back collecting seashells -- had a spinal chord stimulator inserted into his back during a "very, very painful" procedure at a Florida hospital.

A spinal chord stimulator is a device that is inserted below the skin, and uses electric currents to alleviate the effects of chronic pain.

Sources close to Hulk tell TMZ he's "upbeat" about the SCS -- and hopes he'll be allowed to go home soon.

UPDATE: Hulk was discharged from the hospital late last night ... but re-admitted himself this morning because he was still in "excruciating" pain.

I thought that Hulk was a strong man to have a chord in his spine. Maybe you meant "spinal cord", TMZ? Don't trust the spell-checker so much...

So the procedure was "very, very painful" you say? Well that's good news. It couldn't happen to a nicer man, well maybe his punk ass son but he's not a man.

And is anyone else nauseated every time they see "Hulk" hawking that predatory debt consolidation company, you know whatever it's called, that he filmed a commercial for? Is he really that broke now that he's resorting to this for a fast buck? Is he a customer too?

What a joke he is...

Well, it's nice to hear that I'm not the only one! I had a spinal cord stimulator installed a few years ago. I'm a 5'1" girly girl.....trust me - it wasn't "very, very painful"! Plus, I was home the same day! Hulk is a sissy!!!

It's a spinal CORD. A chord is a musical term. Is he using his spine as a xylophone?

How many back surgeries is this guy going to get? I think he should start looking into psychological (ie. stress related) back pain help. I know, it sounds wacky but it's real. My x had it. There were doctors who wanted to perform surgery because his pain was debilitating. Like I said, I know it sounds wacky but Hulk should look into it.

While he was in surgery, they shoulda extracted his brain from his anal cavity and inserted some manliness.

After millions of "Leg Drops" that he has done for the business, he damn well deserves to be pain free (the spine can only take so much compression). Its not easy working in the "business". He was Vince McMahon's puppet for so many years, Vince is the reason he is in the shape he is in now, it can not be too much to ask to be pain free. Maybe even Vince could throw a couple million dollars his way also so he does not have to do ridiculous commercials or have to work for crappy TNA. If it was not for the Hulkster WWE would not be where its at today. Get well brother, I still think you got one more match with Ric Flair left in you! WOOOOOO

P.S. His ex-wife is one huge gold diggin C.U.N.T

i'm having a hard time with this story...

i *know* he was a "professional wrestler" (if you can call wrestling a profession...) and i *know* he was injured alot, but what i'm having a hard time with is, his brain.

if you've previously had back surgeries and chronic pain, what kinda of moron HIS HEIGHT goes out "collecting seashells". He's either stupid, or looking for sympathy...

Having suffered with chronic back pain for over 10 years, I do not wish this kind of suffering on anyone. There are many days where you would do just about anything to get rid of it. Anything...

Hope this new device works for you, Hulkster!
