Nathan Horton's degenerative back injury has significantly diminished his quality of life, but having surgery to repair it would mean the end of his NHL career.
"I don't want to have surgery, because of what that means," Horton said. "I don't want to live with this pain, but I don't want to make that decision. It's hard for me to say that, at 29 years old, I'm done. I mean, really? Done at 29?" He hasn't been able to play since April. He's been pursuing alternatives to surgery, but so far none of the treatments have worked. Horton admitted that at some point in the not too distant future, he's going to have to decide if he wants to undergo surgery. "As long as I can hold off the surgery, I feel like there's a chance," he added. "A chance for something. A miracle. Something." Nov 13 - 4:35 AM
