John DeCamp’s Back Surgery Fails

John DeCamp

After barely recovering from his most recent back surgery in May of 2007, former Nebraska Senator John DeCamp is back in the hospital. Radical experimental surgery was the latest attempt to leave Mr. DeCamp with some flexibility in his spine. It involved grafting human bone tissue into each of John’s vertebrae, then securing them with bolts. These bolts have already loosened, sending DeCamp back to the hospital.

DeCamp’s back was injured while rappelling as a soldier in Viet Nam. His rope was severed, possibly from gunshot fire, crashing him 40 or 50 feet to the ground. As his spine has degenerated, he has had several major surgeries.
