Looking at old photos of Flex Wheeler is hard to imagine, this legendary sportsman already had serious health issues. However, that’s true. Being an incredibly strong person, Flex kept training and building his career even when he suffered from his chronical kidney-disease. No one knows, how much pain stood behind his classy performances at the professional stage.
Nevertheless, now the bodybuilder is facing a very serious problem and has to deal with both health issues and huge hospital bills. Recently Flex shared some sad news, telling that the only way to save his life was to amputate the lower part of his right leg. The sportsman told before that he had problems with blood vessels because of clots. Such a condition was caused by medical manipulations years ago and was connected with his kidney disease.
Waiting for some updates, the sportsman’s fans were shocked knowing that the sportsman can’t pay huge bills and needs to get help to cover at least 150 000$ spends on operation and recovery period. Being attacked with questions, the sportsman decided it was a good time to share more details about the situation and explain more about his recent operation. The bodybuilder shared a video on his Instagram, talking to his fans and sharing his story.
Now, fans and colleagues of Wheeler are trying to support the sportsman, collecting money for him. Being touched with the story, Dennis James started a GoFundMe campaign in order to cover 120 000$ bill for Flex Wheeler.
