Recovering from surgery can be tough to tackle with, but it becomes easier to ignore the pain if surrounded by the loved ones. Fashion consultant Stacy London, who is on the mend after her spinal surgery, shares a similar story as her loving boyfriend accompanies in her battle with illness.
Stacy London Spine Surgery:
Stacy London started to have an awful back pain in the mid of the year 2016. The illness had continued for six long months before it was treated with surgery in early December 2016. Since then, Stacy London and her photographer boyfriend Nick Onken are documenting their recovery process in a social platform, Instagram.
Just after five days of her spine surgery in early December 2016, Stacy London shared a picture of Instagram where she is using a walker for support and kissing Nick who is also on crutches, followed by his bike accident a week before Stacy's surgery.
Love on the 11th floor. The first and only post I'll be making from @hspecialsurgery - 5 days after spinal surgery I can stand and walk. Maybe even a little faster than @nickonken ???? (And before any comments - my penguin pjs were special soft ones for my surgery from @meijerstores so back off.????)
Simultaneously, Stacy’s boyfriend Nick Onken also took Instagram to share their image, which he captioned: ‘Happy Holidays From Clippers’.
2016 was a funny year for us, and well everyone it seems. Life has it’s ups and downs(the election results being one). This year was amazing in so many ways, especially with my love, @stacylondonreal who I’m very grateful for. She had to have spine surgery because the chronic pain got so bad it was unbearable. I don’t know how she even lasted the 6 months that it was really bad. She was lucky to get the surgery taken care of last week. As serendipity would have it, I got hit by a New York taxi on my bike in Soho a week prior. Not to mention Dora our little Morkie got fixed while we were in the hospital, so she’s been in a cone with stitches/. Poor timing I know, but this holiday card says it all and allowed us to find the comic relief in the whole situation. So Happy Holidays from us to you. Go forth and make lemonade. -The Cripples #CreateYourMoments and Brace yourself for 2017!
Stalking their Instagram gives insight on how close Nick and Stacy have grown in this circumstances. Even after getting out of the hospital, Nick and Stacy remained together supporting each other, which is evident in a picture shared on Nick's Instagram, which says: 'We are slowly on the mend.' In the picture, Stacy is spotted kissing Nick, who is holding their dog ‘Dora’ in his hands as they stroll in Carroll Garden Brooklyn.
#Progress. We are slowly on the mend. Neither @stacylondonreal nor I are very patient when it comes to being incapacitated. During our weeks of house arrest, we’ve progressed to doing a lap a day around the block. I think we’re both itching to get back to full working functionality and getting #2017 off to an epic start. Keep moving forward every day, one step at a time. #CreateYourMoments #love #SNDGo3
She must have missed shopping, because as soon as she recovered, Stacy London went straight to her all-time favorite job, i.e. shopping for the upcoming season.

“I felt like I’d never had a serious boyfriend and I really wanted to be attractive,”
After hospitalization, Stacy London started eating, again, that caused her weight to reach 180lbs from 90lbs in less than a year. To inspire other people facing similar body-image battles, she decided to pen down her journey in a book 'The Truth About Style'.
As she seems serious about her relationship with Nick, she might me planning to get married to him, transforming him from loving boyfriend to a loving husband. But when is it bound to happen? Only time will tell.
