Hogan underwent the operation earlier this week (begs16Jul12) and has filmed a video from his hospital bed to thank fans for their support as he recovers.
In the footage, uploaded to his Twitter.com page, Hogan is seen reclining in a surgery gown as he eats breakfast.
He says, “Thank you for all of your thoughts and prayers, like brand new brother. They (surgeons) had to break off a couple of bones in the hip bone, knee bone. I’ll keep you posted.”
