In the hospital now. His wife said his blood vessels are fine and it sounds like he may have a clotting disorder.

I always like watching him train with Dave Tate. Dude is a legend. Hope he comes out the other end in good shape.

According to the video he posted he had a blood vessel explode in his colon yrs back. Not a stroke. Says his heart is normal size and no signs of plaque build up. He had two blockages to his heart which caused the heart attack.

Guy is a beast, wish him the best. Didn't he have some health issues before? Kidney or liver? I think it was congenital.

I wonder what happens with a lot of these guy's after something like this happens - Do they continue to cycle or get scared witless and drop down to TRT only from now on. I can imagine its 50/50 .....

I’m sure it’s 50/50. In a situation like his where it’s a disorder I’d imagine he’d keep on keepin on if the doc says there’s no difference. But I’d think he’d drop to TRT if they say it’ll lessen any risk. He’s a smart dude. I’m sure he’ll do what’s best for him. Hopefully he makes it out well enough to warrant having a choice on the matter.
