    Jeez that's bad. Whether people say its Bb related or not it's hard to believe that it wouldn't have played a part. Hope he has a speedy recovery regardless of the series of events

    yeah there was a link of Lou Ferrigno FB page.

    hope hes alright.
  5. Yeah,this is so sad.flex was,still is one of the greatest bodybuilders of all time.he had a beautiful physique.when it came to aesthetics,symmetry,balance and shape no one could touch him.
    Hope he's okay and gets better soon.
    P.s. I've seen a lot of disgusting comments on ukm,making fun and having a joke at flex' s expense.
    This is no laughing matter.we are talking about a man's health and livelihood here.I know a friend who went through this and was devastated.it took him a long time to get over it,and he still has his days.
    It would be good to hear peoples comments on this situation.is it just me guys?,am I overreacting?
    I just find the comments sick and disgusting.

    UW: That's the internet mate.... having that barrier between themselves and real life brings out the worst in so many people, plus the younger generation haven't developed any real life social skills to even understand acceptable behaviour anyway. Then you also have how it detaches people from reality even if the news/info etc is real. Plus UKM is kind of full of that kind of mentality and so on anyway so I'm not surprised you came across it there. It is OOO but it's also sign of the time

    Some of you may remember Peagreen from MT, fell from his loft and altho they saved his leg, over year post surgery he was almost begging for it to be removed as he was in so much pain (not discomfort but pain) 24/7 and he became a shell of his former self for a long time.

    Reports are that he is doing well so far, but it must be a head fvck to have to deal with such a thing especially considering his lifestyle

    Just read about this wish him a speedy recovery.

    Shawn Ray spoke about what's been happening with Flex

    “This is not something that happened overnight. It’s been an ongoing struggle, and a continuous battle for Flex.

    It has a lot more to do with his circulatory vascular system, than it does to do with just his lower extremities. He’d been in excruciating pain for a long time, even back before he made his infamous comeback two years ago.

    So with that being a consistent problem, and with him operating with one kidney already.

    It got to a point Dave, where earlier this year, he was hospitalized for three months, put into an induced coma, while they went in there and did some exploratory vein realignment-type work and solve the problem that way.

    But he was told even then, that the worst case scenario was that he may lose a limb.”
