On Friday, Kristina posted a photo series of the interior of the hospital as well as some post-intervention photos.

She revealed that the Teen Mom father had undergone “bilateral endoscopic carpal tunnel surgery”.

The procedure was planned and went well, according to his post.

“Today @itsgarytime had his bilateral endoscopic carpal tunnel surgery. Luckily his surgery went as planned. He was entertainment for the doctors, nurses and staff to say the least.

“He’s back home now and resting. I feel like I have a little boy that I need to take care of and care for,” she shared in the caption.

Amber commented on the post, showing her support for Kristina.

Gary’s ex commented, “Sure @Kristina_shirley3 thanks you for my goofy pic from earlier lol but he has a great nurse looking after him and a few little helpers too.”

Gary and Amber have had a rocky relationship, though it’s gotten better lately.

On a recent episode of Teen Mom Family Reunion, Gary sat down with Amber to praise her for trying to mend her broken relationship with her daughter Leah.


Gary revealed that he was undergoing surgery shortly before the procedure.

He shared the news with fans in a video featuring his daughter Emilee on Thursday.

Gary revealed he has carpal tunnel syndrome – a common condition that causes pain, numbness and tingling in the hands and arms.

The condition occurs when one of the main nerves in the hand – the median nerve – becomes compressed or compressed as it passes through the wrist.

The father-of-two said he is undergoing bilateral carpal tunnel surgery, which means both of his wrists will be operated on in one general anesthetic session.

“Hopefully they can heal at the same time so I can use my hands faster,” the MTV star told his fans.

“I don’t have a lot of strength in my hands sometimes and sometimes I wake up and they’re numb.”

Gary said Kristina would drive him to the hospital and a family member would look after Emilee while they were in the hospital.

He then turned to his young daughter and joked, “I don’t think Emilee is too happy because I’m not cooking for a while and she has to eat mum’s cooking. Are you ready for that?”

Emilee laughed at the crack and walked away from the camera.

Gary shared the video on Instagram on Thursday with the caption: “Big things happening, definitely not excited.

“I absolutely hate being under anesthesia! One of my biggest fears.”

Amber wrote, “Pray for you mate! No worries you strong you got that!”

Gary praised Kristina a week before the operation, calling her a “beautiful soul”.

Sharing a selfie of them on a date, he said: “You are one of the most beautiful souls I know.

“I don’t know how I would do this without you. Thanks for everything, cute! »


Gary also recently made amends with Amber after months of feuding with his reality TV star ex.

The duo got together for lunch with their daughter Leah at Gary’s house.

She snapped a photo with Gary, who smiled as he held up a turkey club sandwich.

Amber wrote, “It really is simple stuff! Blended families can be complicated and stressful at times.

“But it’s simple days and kind gestures that make co-parenting amazing.”

She also thanked Gary and Kirstina “for the sandwich.”
