OK, well saying your intestine is ambiguous. The colon is the largest segment of the large intestine. Furthermore, diverticulitis is almost always found in the large intestine. That being said, I would wager it was likely his colon. Saying colon and intestine in this instance are analogous.

I had to have a temporary colostomy for 3 months until all of the infection was gone...it was a daily battle and it makes you INCREDIBLY weak.

If there was a perforation, he is VERY sick and it's gonna take quite a bit of time to get better. My body has never been the same since my experience.

I hope for the best for Brock. I wouldn't wish what he is going through on anyone.
Your experience is very similar to what my brother went through. That's awful man. At least you're still here to tell your story.

It's obviously a possibility, I simply meant to imply that at no time was it ever reported that the perforation was in fact in his colon.

Also, Brock's 'minor' operation does not really seem to fall in line with the four hour surgery removing a foot of his colon that IlliniPhil was describing in his experience above.

They referred to my brothers operation as a minor operation too (he had 1/3 of his colon removed). The word minor was used in his (my brother's) case because it was unlikely that he'd succumb to the operation. The word major (in the surgery field) is usually reserved for brain/heart/transplants/spine and anything involving the pancreas (prob most sensitive organ in your body).

A perforation in your intestine is a huge deal. There's nothing minor about the recovery. The surgery itself is minor, but it's definitely going to be a battle for him.

I hope for the best. I've never liked Brock as a person, but I LOVE watching him fight. He's very talented, and I look forward to seeing him battle again. Brock/Carwin, Brock/Cain, and Brock/Mir III are all fights I can't wait to see!

Yup lets hope for the best!

Realistically I think we're looking at about a year for him to return. I'm not buying this 6 months from his camp at all.

Nah there's no way it could be true. Brock has a pretty solid amount of muscle and not too much fat, you lose muscle the slower than fat when you're like that. He's been sick for two months now? I can't picture him losing 25lbs/month. Maybe though.

By the end of all this though he could really be a TON smaller though. Which would be sort of ironic - since some jerks say he wins by size alone. If he comes back and he's only weighing in at like 235 ish (pretty average HW size I think?) that'd be interesting to say the least.

Mir actually had to re-learn how to walk after his Motercycle accident. When compared to that I doubt Brock's ailment will be that difficult for him to overcome. I'd say that much to disdain of his haters, he'll be back as strong as ever within a year.

My uncle was an athlete and lost over 100 pounds due to a major brain operation, and he put it all back on within a year and was competing again, and he was in his 40's.
I had the same kind of injury as Mir. I was hit by a motorcycle and it shatter my femur bone. However, it's not what you're implying. It's not like a spinal injury where you have to relearn how to walk for real. It's just regaining the muscle. It's absurd to compare an intestine rip and mono to a simple broken bone.

And there's simply no way to put 100lbs of muscle on while training in a year. While training full time it's extremely difficult to put even 15lbs of muscle on in a year.

It's really unfortunate, I mean - all sport aside, just being this sick and being in and out of hospital is a downer. Guys like Mir need to lay off the "he's what drives me", "i want a rematch", "it'll take me a while to digest this (that Brock may not return)" - he's first of all a human being, then a fighter. It'll be good to see him back though, and I'm guessing around mid 2010, in that time though - I guess an interim title will be created ... damn I hate that lol I mean why not just call it a "number 1 contender match"?

Well you must of misread my post because I didn't say he lost or put back on 100 lbs of muscle. Just that he lost and put on 100 lbs. Just as whatever weight Brock has lost so far is certainly not all muscle mass.

When the body is starved of hydration, food and activity, from spending time in hospital, the weight comes back much faster that an athlete who is already at his peak and trying to push his physical limits. Especially for somebody with Brock's genetics.

Brock's case will be interesting though, because his condition has a direct impact on his food intake, so I guess we'll have to wait and see how this plays out.

Yeah I agree, because obviously there is no way Brock could sell all those tickets without a fake injury and derailing of 2-3 awesome cards. All these fake injuries are just a build up for one massive "anti superbowl" card where Brock ends up fighting cancer becauser Carwin is busy getting his arm chopped in 2 by Nog/Mir.
It'll be the biggest ppv in the history of ufc all thanks to idiot fan's and Dana's creative hype up!

That, or the biggest ppv seller in the history of ufc, the current HW champion and the guy who changed his entire life around to perform on a sport he has been a fan about for a while is actually sick and needs all our support (even the imaginary one from imaginary god(s) helps! The idiots like you prolly still deny the death of Hitler, Moon (both visiting of it and in general the whole existance of entire place) and the fact that not every person does mma just to sell tickets.
When Brock started MMA he told Dana that he has no interest to build up a streak by fighting cans, he got Mir as his first opponent at UFC and from there it has been nothing but improvement from him. Even if Dana thinks about money there is no reason for Brock to fake an injury. If Brock wants and is able to fight, he will, but right now that injury is aking too much strenght from him.

Maybe his uncle was a sumo wrestler, which I agree is about only real way an "athlete" can regain 50 kg ( or 100lbs) while remaining competetive.

He had a brain tumor and went from 220 lbs to 120 lbs following his surgery, and he lost muscle mass, fat and obviously water weight. All of which he put back on within a year.
