David Backes will be unavailable for the next eight weeks at a minimum after having diverticulitis surgery.
Backes missed the start of the season due to diverticulitis, but he returned on Oct. 19 and played in five games. However, surgery was always a possibility depending on how his body responded to diet changes and medication. "The decision to have surgery was made in consultation with team physicians as well as outside specialists in the management of diverticulitis," the Bruins said in a statement. "David’s episode of diverticulitis at the beginning of the season was his second episode in two months and was complicated with an abscess (collection of infection adjacent to the colon) that required drainage. Repeated episodes, like what David experienced, have a very high likelihood of recurrence in the near term, which is why he was advised to have surgery to remove the area of colon causing the problem. It was determined that attempting to delay the surgery until after the season was an unacceptable risk to his health." Boston has placed Backes on the injured reser Nov 1 - 12:59 PM
