Austin released from hospital


 SAN ANTONIO (AP)-Pro wrestler "Stone Cold" Steve Austin was released from a hospital three days after doctors performed spinal surgery to relieve chronic pain in his neck, arms and legs.
 
 Austin, 35, left Methodist Hospital on Wednesday. The World Wrestling Federation star was recuperating at his home in Boerne, about 30 miles northwest of San Antonio, said Dr. Lloyd Youngblood, chief of neurosurgery at the hospital.
 
 Doctors removed bone spurs from vertebrae in his neck. Two of the cervical disks in his neck were replaced with a bone graft, a metal plate and screws, Youngblood said.
 
 Austin could return to the ring in six to 12 months, depending on the healing process, Youngblood said.
