Josh Lenartowicz was notified that he had a brain tumor a couple of months ago. Now he is forced to get a second surgery to remedy the situation.
Lenartowicz had a bit of a health scare when it was revealed that he had a brain tumor. As a result, he was unable to compete at 2019 Mr. Olympia. Moreover, during the procedure to remove the tumor, he suffered some complications. Luckily, he was able to pull through okay in the end.
However, it would appear that not everything was okay for Lenartowicz. On Monday, he made a video, which he posted to his Instagram, explaining that he needed a second surgery. As he told it, doctors informed him that because of the complications he experienced in the first procedure, things were not healing correctly. Therefore he would need to go under the knife a second time. Furthermore, he said that he would be headed to the hospital that night, to get the surgery the next day.
