“Brace yourself.. not my usual post but wanted to share a life update- not too long ago I was in a car wreck. I underwent anterior cervical disc replacement surgery to remove the C5-C6 disc in my neck and replace it with an artificial disc,” Stuhlmann wrote.
“As I begin the healing process and physical therapy journey, I’m feeling encouraged, determined, and eager to lean into some qualities that I haven’t tapped into since my competitive playing career 10 years ago.”
“Thanking God for a successful surgery. And a huge thank you to my amazing family and friends, and everyone who reached out and kept my spirits up.”
“This isn’t a setback! It’s just all part of the comeback and I can’t wait to be feeling 100% again.”
