Only someone as resilient as an 8-time Mr. Olympia can undergo a delicate spinal procedure and call it “cosmetic surgery.” Big Ron Coleman is home now and on the mend from a late December hospital stay at which he had a Cervical Disectomy Fusion of his C4-C5, C5-C6 and C6-C7 and downplayed it as much on his Twitter account.
“I’m going home,” he tweeted on December 29. “Cosmetic surgery was a huge success. I’ll be back on stage in a couple of weeks.”
Coleman further tweeted that he had the operation to add more size to his already massive frame. “It never hurts to get bigger.”
The 5’11”, 330-pound former champion has not competed since placing fourth at the 2007 Olympia but has never officially announced his retirement and seems to enjoy frequent rumors of his impending return. Coleman has kept himself busy with guest posing appearances in the years following his record-tying Sandow run (1998 to 2005), as recent as December’s IFBB Pro World Masters.
