It would appear that the great Ronnie Coleman needs your thoughts and prayers right now. He is in the hospital, and in need of surgery.
Coleman has firmly cemented his place as one of bodybuilding’s greats. With a record-setting 8 Olympia wins (almost could have been 9), he is one of the best to ever do it. As a result, he has become one of the inspirations for many young, up and coming athletes, to aspire to.
However, things are not going so well right now, for Coleman. According to a recent video, he is in the hospital. What started out as a regular doctor’s visit turned into an immediate need for surgery. He has had many issues over the years, needing multiple surgeries on his back. This time however, the problem is in his right hip.
Check it out:
“As you can see, I’m in the hospital again,” Coleman said. “I ended up going to the doctor today, for some x-rays. X-ray didn’t turn out too good.
So they admitted me, and I’ve been here since 5 o’clock, all by myself, getting ready to do this surgery on my right hip, early in the morning. So I guess I’ll see you guys after this is all over.”
Although Coleman does not explain what is going on in great detail, he detailed some of it. As he says, he went in to get x-rays on his hips, which he has had problems with in the past. Subsequently he was informed of some sort of issue that required him to get surgery immediately. Although he does not say what is specifically wrong, he does explain that it was a minor surgery, so that’s good.
Hopefully everything turns out okay for Ronnie Coleman. Nevertheless, FitnessVolt is sending positive vibes his way, and wishing him a speedy recovery. It is always troubling to see one of bodybuilding’s heroes have to go through things like this, especially with such a rushed need for the procedure.
