    He had was his gallbladder removed and in-turn was a blessing as the dr saw he had an appendicitis. I know of several people getting these parts removed, no just bbers. Roids or whatever he is still human, no auto answer saying ohh it's roids that did this! really bro!?
    EXACTLY!! If a regular person had the same health problems, people would say "Ohh that sucks for you buddy"!! BUT if a bodybuilder has those same health problems people will say "DUDE it's all the drugs he's taking, wake up dude"!!

        I had my appendicitis removed due to inflammation when I was 13 years old...I guess that must have been from all the roids I was taking back in 7th grade?...Educate yourself before lecturing others or else you involuntarily sound as dumb as you unknowingly are.

              That must have been the worst experience every.

              Calling your mom from you death bed is insane.

              That's when the realities of life must really set home.

                        Didn't mean any harm. Just saying I wonder what happens when you go to the doctor and then they have to check all your blood work and they start asking about the juice. Docs go wild over this and with all the recent premature deaths in bodybuilding it is scary.

                        Thank you.

                          While I agree with you here the question is did steroids aggravate his situation? It seems too coincidental that a lot of bodybuilders with health problems us the cliché steroids had nothing to do with it.

                            Congrats to Todd for winning his pro card, it is an inspirational story of the human spirit, he never gave up on his goal/dream to turn pro even after all these health issues he had to deal with.
