Snyder feels better after back surgery

Posted by GameSetMatch on September 30th, 2009

Chris Snyder noticed the difference almost immediately.

The D-backs’ catcher underwent microdiscectomy surgery on his back on Wednesday, and not long after the anesthesia wore off he knew his back was better.

“It’s completely different now,” he said by phone Monday. “I feel much better. Obviously, it’s still sore from where they did the incision, but as far as what I felt before, that’s gone. There’s no more shooting pain down my leg.”

Snyder’s back has bothered him almost all season, and it finally landed him on the disabled list June 23. If he had to do it all over again, Snyder would have had the surgery at that time and possibly missed the rest of the season.
