C.T. Fletcher is in the hospital for the heart transplant.
The powerlifter and bodybuilder icon is waiting for a heart to be found, so the transplant could go ahead.
C.T. Flecther is a man who has never been afraid of telling the truth about himself and once again he is hoping to both inspire and keep his fanbase informed. On his official Twitter account, Fletcher posted a photo of himself sitting upright in a hospital bed, stating that he’s not accepting visitors as they’d see him after his transplant.
Typically of Fletcher, this shows a resolve and confidence in what are pretty tough times. Heart transplants do fail and approximately 85 to 90 percent of heart transplant patients are living one year after their surgery, with an annual death rate of approximately 4 percent thereafter. The three-year survival approaches 75% according to a study report by uptodate.com
“I watched my mom & brother pass away from heart disease & when they were in the hospital relatives came that I hadn’t seen in yrs. They came because they thought it was their last chance to see them alive. Im not accepting visitors because they “will” see me after my transplant”
Fletcher also shared a video update while waiting for the heart!
