BARKER IS HOME AND DOING WELL

Going forward, Barker plans to continue to strengthen his back to help with the injury he suffered in October, the rep continues.

Barker was previously hospitalized on Oct. 22, when he was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for back pain. Prior to that, Barker was visited by emergency personnel at his home on Oct. 9, where his complaints of back pain first began.

A SPATE OF ACCIDENTS

In recent years, Barker has been involved in a series of minor accidents that have taken a toll on the nonagenarian. In 2015, he slipped on the sidewalk and fell injuring his knee, and cutting his head. He was attended to at the ER and required stitches for his head injury.

In 2017, he once again fell and hit his head in his bathroom at his Los Angeles home. He was observed at the hospital but was released with a clean bill of health.

AGE TAKES ITS TOLL ON BOB BARKER

Fans of the dynamic Bob Barker are saddened to see his advancing age take its toll on his health.

Barker’s manager, William Prappas, revealed in October 2018 that the star is still suffering from the repercussion of a severe back injury he contracted in a fall in 2017.

Barker will be continuing with physical therapy to strengthen his back and mitigate his pain but is described as being in good spirits. Other than his back problems, doctors have found him to be in good general health.
