Kenny Omega Provides Update On Diverticulitis Recovery

Kenny Omega Provides Update On Diverticulitis Recovery AEW

Former AEW World Champion Kenny Omega has provided an update on his ongoing recovery from Diverticulitis.

Back on December 15 2023, Omega was diagnosed with Diverticulitis ahead of a scheduled AEW World Tag Team Championship match at the Worlds End pay-per-view – of which he and Chris Jericho would have challenged then champions Ricky Starks and Big Bill.

With four months now removed from Omega’s diagnosis, The Cleaner has now provided fans an update on his current condition amid constant questions regarding a return to the ring.

Speaking on a recent Twitch stream, Omega revealed how he was currently feeling:

“Even though I’m very much still dealing with the effects of diverticulitis and diverticulosis. There is this wonderful clinic, LifeMed Clinic over in Baltimore, and they have helped a number of wrestlers.

“They have done stuff with DPP and DDP Yoga. Their professionals were able to hook me up with a supplement line consisting of the stuff that I need for general gut health and healing peptides, has helped me feel very good in my day-to-day.

“Before, I was having one real bad day and one real good day. On streaming days, I would almost stay in bed until 5 PM to make sure I could do it. It’s something I wanted to do.

“IV drips, being hydrated, even though it sounds like a strange thing. When it’s bad, you don’t feel like digesting anything because drinking and eating hurts.

“With these supplements, a lot of my inflammation has gone down. I’m able to eat properly and drink more fluids without feeling discomfort.

“Aside from feeling sensitive to the touch, for a quick second I thought, ‘Oh my goodness, is it possible I’m able to go back without surgery?’ Nah.

“The first time I take someone’s double foot stomp, even if it’s Marko Stunt or Riho, something is probably going to blow. Even if Dobby walks on my belly, that’s a 21-pound cat.

“As good as I feel right now in my day to day and training, once impact starts to get involved or you have to use your core to do heavy lifts, that’s when things start to get dangerous. I’m going to have to make sure it’s all taken care of.”

WrestleTalk would like to extend our well-wishes to Omega in his continued recovery.
