Man, oh man, oh man!
We certainly had plenty to talk about on Episode #148. For those of you who don’t know, last week Von went on an expedition which was a simulation of a Special Forces type experience. He planned on it being a really tough 8-day adventure but what he did not expect was that he would have an absolutely wicked case of rhabdomyolysis within 24 hours of the event.
Unable to move his arms and urinating the color of black coffee, Von knew that something had to give. He went to the cadre’s tent and told him that he had to stop. Upon seeing the color of his urine, they immediately called the paramedics and Von was rushed to the hospital for a 5-day stay.
Von shares with us what his experience was like, how he plans to recover and the changes that this experience has done for his outlook. It is really an amazing story and even more amazing is the attitude and outlook that Von has as a result.
You are not going to want to miss this one!
I suffered from rhabdo a few years ago. I was in the Marine Corps when it happened. We were doing a training exercise through the woods in full gear. The temp was 100+ degrees and 100% humidity. I remember taking a step with my left leg and every muscle cramping in that leg. Before that happened, I felt as though I was tipsy. The month long recovery was painful. They doc said that once you have rhabdo, you are more likely to get it again. With it getting hot out and me living in South Carolina, I have to be careful how hard I push myself.
Wow, that sounds awful Justin. I’m really worried about being more likely to get it again. I do not want that to happen.
