Once he recovers, he'll be back just as good and most likely stronger than ever.
Was it the steroids that caused this in the first place?

Some people simply work harder than others. People who don't work hard accuse others of using steroids.

Probably not. Steroids are used to treat autoimmune disorders. They use corticosteroids instead of anabolic steroids but still, it means that any use of steroids on Brock's part probably did not cause this.

That experience is why I became a nurse.

Was he born with this or does something cause this, Amy?

My son was born with this. When his cells were deciding what to be when they grow up in the embryonic stage of his development, a pocket of cells in his intestines decided to revolt and be stomach cells instead. It happens in only 2% of the entire population and of those 2% only another 2% actually have symptoms from it and those usually manifest in those under age 2. The pedi GI doc called it the rule of 2's. My son was 4 1/2 and just suddenly started bleeding to death internally. He lost half his blood volume before we could get him to the right hospital and transfuse. He should have died if you look at the way it all happened but he didn't. He pulled through just fine. His 1 hour surgery that they planned to do laproscopically turned into a major surgery with open incisions after several hours. It was excruciating to wait. The GI surgeon called me from the OR to get consent to remove more than they'd originally intended and had to remove his appendix as well.

Oh and I'll never forget when we were doing the test for it in the nuclear medicine area and the radiologist called all the attendings and told them to get any residents and interns who had not seen a "meckels" to get up there because he had a classic one. Even I could see it on the scan. It was kind of cool. Everyone was so excited because it really is a rare thing.

Anyway, the kid is almost 13 and is truly awesome. He's a miracle. His nurses at that hospital (Geisinger Children's Hospital in PA) are the reason I am a nurse today. They were sooo wonderful to us.

Wow! I think you're right, your son is a miracle and he was meant to be here, and, I think, you were meant to be a nurse.

It is fascinating isn't it, when you get to see the films of what's going on in the body. Some people don't want to see, but if something is going on with me or someone I love, I want to know and see everything so I can understand what's happening. By the time I was diagnosed with severe endometriosis, my insides were messed up good. It had grown around my left ureter. My surgeon asked me if I wanted to see my film. I said, "Yeah!" So we go look at it and he's pointing out my left kidney and ureter and showing me the difference to the right side. It was fascinating to see. In fact, those were the doc's very words to me and the nurse, "Isn't it fascinating how the right kidney has compensated for the left." He was like so excited.

I imagine the docs and techs were pretty excited to be able to see an actual case such as your son's because it is so rare. I'm so glad he made it through such a harrowing experience and is now healthy and about to be thirteen.

Hopefully, Brock Lesnar will make it through his ordeal without any lasting effects and be healthy once again.
