This is indeed very sad to hear, Ronnie Coleman who was once The King of the bodybuilding world has now been battling through a series of major surgeries over the past few years.
The 53-year old bodybuilding legend Ronnie who was once at the pinnacle of the most prestigious bodybuilding show Mr. Olympia has now been apparently reduced to a wheelchair after 10 major surgeries.
But now the 8x Mr. Olympia and the GOAT of bodybuilding say he may never walk unassisted again after the questionable surgical procedures.
In a recent video call answering a question “Will he ever walk again” by Muscular Development’s Ron Harris Ronnie reveal:
“I don’t know if that’ll [Walk] ever happen because I’ve had too much damage done to my body from all these surgeries a lot of it has to do with the way the surgeon performed the surgery and the surgeon that I’ve had the last three surgeries been really bad and caused a lot of damage to my body so I don’t know if I’ll be able to walk….
but I’m gonna give it my best shot but I think if that surgeon had to perform these surgeries right then I would have been walking a long long time ago!”
Ronnie talks about the Surgeon’s questionable surgical procedures and also reveal the huge cost of his last three surgeries which was around $2 Million.
“Just the way he [Surgoen] did everything and performed everything it was like he was kind of doing these surgeries to make money…”
“Every surgery I’ve had done was like $300,000 to $500,000 so the last three surgeries I had almost spend $2 million dollars!”
