‘The comeback starts here’: Eamonn Holmes confirms he ‘feels good’ after steroid injections ‘go in’ amid his chronic pain battle

Eamonn Holmes has confirmed that he is feeling well “for the first time in five weeks” after a visit from his physical therapist.

The TV host, 61, has recently been in ill health, having openly exposed his chronic health struggles on social media since dislocating his pelvis.

Eamonn added that he believes his improved health is also a result of ‘starting’ his steroid injections.

Eamonn received good wishes from many of his followers, including BBC Newsnight’s Sam McAllister who wrote, ‘Yaassss! So happy for you. Here are more improvements. ‘

The Northern Ireland star is struggling with pain after a dislocated pelvis left his back ‘out of alignment’, making it difficult for him to walk.

But this week, Eamonn shared how circulation boosters helped him “ get back out ” in daily activities.

According to The sun, Eamonn said of the treatment, “I had some trouble waking up before and after double hip surgery.”

In addition to using the circulation booster, Eamonn has relieved his pain with physical therapy and ice-cold showers, which left him feeling ‘invigorated’ in the midst of his health problems.

Eamonn first spoke about his dislocated pelvis in March and recently had an MRI scan to get further tests after he left chronic pain.

Earlier this month, Eamonn explained how a dislocated pelvis started his chronic health battle while waiting for the results of an MRI scan as his pain escalated.

He joked in an interview with the Irish Independent that his injury is “not nearly as erotic as it sounds.”

He told the publication, ‘I’ve mysteriously dislocated my pelvis and I don’t know how – it’s not as erotic as it sounds. My back is out of alignment as a result. ‘

The Belfast resident went on to say that since he talked about his debilitating pain on social media, he found it ‘absolutely terrifying’ about the number of people also living with chronic pain.

“Nobody knows what it is like unless they live with someone who has it.” he said. ‘I am in tremendous pain and no one knows how to stop it.

‘This hurts a lot and I have to find a way to overcome it. It’s been a month and I feel like I can’t remember what life was like without the pain. ‘

Eamonn and Ruth married in 2010 after a 13-year romance, and are doting parents to teenage son Jack, 19.

Eamonn also has children Declan, Rebecca and Niall from his previous marriage to Gabrielle Holmes.
