I know that a lot of people dislike Brock, but the man is a father. Get Well Brock, hope you come back ready to fight(if he does even come back).

 

 

 

 

Ps: I know this has nothing to do with the subject, but why do people say Nelson has a better ground game when NELSON stated Mir has a better ground game. Source: Watch that inside the octagon with Amir Sadollah thing.

doesn't his disease mean that he has a hole somewhere and his body waste leaks out to his insides?

 

that's pretty messed up. I'd be too worried about hitting him cos i may pop the big bog balloon in his guts :eek:

 

I'd still say he is more afraid of geeting cracked in the face then copping shots in his gut...

You heard it here first on shinsplint.com :P

 

I would like to see Brock ragdolled around a bit more.

 

Lets see him smashed up a bit more.

 

Have a nice day :-)

 

Haha, well this illness looks pretty savage... & i dont think he would hang around even if he wasnt sick...

 

IF he aint going to get gold, IMO he wont hang around...

 

He would have an uphill climb to get the belt.. Beating Cigano , Cain & Co. = Not going to happen...

 

If anything he would go back to uncle Vince...

He would of beat JDS easily. Doubt JDS has enough wrestling to stop takedowns and cause Brock to go defensive like Cain did and I doubt his jiu jitsu is better than Mir's. Would of preferred Brock to beat JDS but Carwin is a good substitute.. it will be interesting to see if Brock comes back and how quickly they push him into title contention

I disagree... IMO Lesnar would of turtled again against Cigano.... Brock cant stand getting hit & the fight starts on the feet...

 

Either Brock shoots for a TD & eats a Cigano knee OR is dumb enough to trade with Cigano....which is highly unlikely...

Brock has diverticulosis' date=' which is fairly common in middle aged and older adults. Many people with the condition are asymptomatic or experience only mild discomfort from time to time. What happens is you get weak spots in the intestinal wall that bulge out and form little pockets called diverticula. When the little pockets get infected, the person develops diverticulitis, which can be serious.

 

Brock is quite young to have diverticulosis and diverticulitis, although it's not unheard of. He also has a very severe case, which warrants more radical treatment. Last time he had it, one of the diverticula ruptured and started spilling infection, pus, and fecal matter into his abdominal cavity. That is freaking agonizing (the pain can be unimaginable) and can also kill you in short order. Your body would go septic and you'd die a slow, painful death without treatment.

 

Diverticulitis needs to be treated with a regimen of antibiotics at the very least, and surgery for severe cases. Brock is probably verging on the latter.

So, what kind of time fame for recovery Doc? If he gets the surgery or will he even be able to fight after surgery?

Hardly seems like reasonable criteria by which to whether to offer well wishes.

 

I can think of some pretty terrible people whom are parents, and whom I owuld not wish well.

 

Genghis Khan was a bit of a rogue..... Responsible for 10-15 million deaths in Iraq alone. He conquered and ruled almost the whole of Eurasia..... He was a dad. In fact, he fathered so many children that anybody reading this has about a .5% of being a direct descendent of his.

how funny would it be if Big Nog choked Brock out cold? :D

If nog wins his next fight in dramatic fashion, he could be brocks return fight.

?I am the punishment of God...If you had not committed great sins,

God would not have sent a punishment like me upon you.?

... the Shaman/ Tengri was responsible for 40+ million deaths, Bork not so much ...

I admit, this made me laugh. I'm certainly no doctor - just a guy who has some related health issues and has spent plenty of time at the Mayo Clinic. I know plenty of people with all types of like disorders and diseases and have read & researched as much on them as most gastroenterologists have. I believe there's a member of this forum who has frequent bouts of diverticulitis and might be facing the same surgery. Perhaps he'll weigh in on the subject.

 

If Brock opts for the surgery, his return depends on a variety of factors. How much of his colon is affected by the disease? Removing a substantial part of one's large intestine can permanently alter one's digestive function and make them unable to perform in most athletic endeavors. If it's fairly localized, it depends on how they do the surgery. If they do a laparoscopic bowel resection (subtotal colectomy) with typical anastomosis (sewing the two ends of the remaining healthy colon back together) and everything goes without a hitch, he could be back in action in several months. If they do open surgery, recovery would be longer. Now, if it's more serious and he needs to have a colostomy for a brief period, he could be out for a year or more at least. Obviously, if the colostomy is permanent or there are other complications from surgery it could easily end his career. With major surgery like that, the variables and possible complications are near-infinite.

 

Brock is still young and healthy, especially in comparison to most people who suffer from the same affliction, so should he opt for the surgery, hopefully it won't be the end of him. I can see them going in laparoscopically, removing a small section of his descending colon, reattaching the two healthy parts, and sending him on his way to recovery.

 

Of course he may not have the surgery. Sometimes they can go in (similar to a colonoscopy) and clean out the infected diverticula and pump him full of antibiotics to clear up the issue for now.

If Brock is lucky his diverticula are confined to the sigmoid colon, this would certainly reduce the amount of colon that needs to be removed.

 

The difficulty with diverticulosis at a young age is the degenerative nature of the disease. My GI put it to me that younger people have to live in their bodies longer and surgery is often the option of choice rather than the management of symptoms.

 

Either way I curious to see what route he chooses to manage his condition. I've been given a three-strike rule. Three acute episodes and my doc will recommend the surgery. Which I think is somewhat strange as I've already had three episodes prior to being followed by a specialist
