Interestingly Brock Lesnar, a huge name in WWE and MMA, just had colon surgery for diverticulitis (which is what I had); and a portion of his colon was removed. He likely had a colostomy.
I was actually going to drop him a note wishing him well, telling about my situation and asking him to consider doing something positive for others (while he recovers) by reason of his celebrity and status, such as educating the public and candidly taking about his medical procedure such that it could have some small impact on how the public views an ostomy.
Was just curious if others believe such "publicity", that will likely surround Brock Lesnar, this 33-year old, muscular 265# UFC/MMA heavyweight champion, well-known to many in and out of the sport... is a good thing. After all, the typical image of those who undergo colon surgery is not that of a person of the stature or physique of a Brock Lesnar.
Wondering if others think that the more publicity he gets on this medical subject could contribute in some small way to creating a better attitude or understanding of this life-saving medical procedure.
Also would like to know if anyone has read or heard about his surgery, before I posted this forum topic.
From what I read he has been candid about his medical condition.
