Billy Graham is opening up about the damage to his heart in a new health update.
Earlier this week, it was reported, via his personal Facebook account, that Billy Graham, former WWE Champion, was hospitalized following atrial fibrillation in addition to heart failure with fluid in his lungs.
The last update stated that the Superstar would provide the next update on his condition himself and he has done so, once again taking to Facebook to update his family, fans, and friends on the condition of his heart.
In his latest update, Billy Graham reassures his fans that multiple doctors have said that his steroid use through the years has nothing to do with the current heart issues he is facing and says he will make a full recovery despite feeling weak.
Steroid Damaged Heart
Hello fans, I know many of you good folks out there have been following the information that my good and faithful friend, Mike has been posting on my FB. This information was given to him directly from my wife Valerie, that she had received directly from the two Mayo Clinic Hospital doctors that had been treating me for my heart condition. I appreciate all of your get well wishes, thoughts and prayers. I have been very weak since coming home from the hospital yesterday. My arms that could lift hundreds of pounds, can now barely lift a spoon of soup to his mouth. However, I shall overcome. Just like this photo of a mountain goat, living his life on the edge comfortably, I have done the same.
In closing for now, I would like to say that I know there has been much talk that my past heavy and prolonged steroid use has caused my current heart damage. It is only natural to think this. BUT..............two years ago when I was first diagnosed with this Congestive Heart Disease and Atrial Fibrillation by the Mayo Clinic doctors, they told me that my past use of steroids had nothing to do with my heart problems. Then, while I was just in for this very serious heart episode, I asked the two doctors treating me the same question. They said, " Absolutely Not " as what I have, millions of other people in the U.S. have as well. Peace, to one and all...Superstar Billy Graham
Fightful wishes Superstar Billy Graham a speedy recovery and will provide any and all updates on his condition.
