Chris Riedell Needs a Medical Operation
Chris’ wife revealed some details about his situation. She said that Chris was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease when he was 12 years old.
He had multiple surgeries for bowel obstructions later in his life.
On December 6, Chris experienced very intense pain and was rushed to the ER.
It was revealed that he had a massive bowel obstruction again in the same spot as his first obstruction.
However, due to the massive amount of scar tissue and strictures in his intestines, a pricey bowel resection surgery will be necessary for him to live normally (and earn income) again.
