dieting had nothing to do with him being in a coma. he injured himself during a photo shoot and then fell into a coma during the following surgery.

As I have posted a thread or two about this before:

Basically nobody "in the know" has said anything and will say anything when a thread like this is posted.

Just a lot of "i heard" posts that are kind of stupid.. like "i heard he went into a coma".

Well yeah.. but how is the dude now..

During the time I think someone alluded to the fact he may have suffered brain damage or something like that.  Anyway, thats what "I heard" around the time and it certainly makes sense if nobody seems to be saying anything about him.  Its a shame really - but I suppose you have to respect the familys decision if they indeed wish that he would just disappear from the public eye after this. Undecided

Havent heard lately, as of 2 years ago he was supposedly recovering slowly...


Burke update - Hard Times - Orville Burke recovers - Brief Article
Flex,  March, 2003  by Jim Rosenthal

ORVILLE BURKE, who lapsed into a coma following surgery to reattach his triceps on November 5, continues to make slow progress from his ordeal. According to close friend STEVE WEINBERGER, "Orville's doing a lot better, but it will be a long road to recovery. He is breathing on his own. He is opening up his eyes. He can recognize people."

As of December 2, Burke was still in intensive care, with hopes of soon moving toward beginning his work in a rehab center. "It looks like he is going to survive, but now he faces a hard rehabilitation road ahead of him," says Weinberger, who owns the gym where Burke trains, Bev Francis Gold's Gym in Syosset, New York. "We'll see how he responds. We're hoping for the best."

FLEX sends its best to Orville and his family, and we urge the entire bodybuilding community to continue to keep him in their thoughts.

You should know that in this industry...nobody knows shit. A bber goes down, and none of the people who competed with him or rep for him, know shit, or go check on him.

 It seems like Orville Burke is really laying low and hiding out.

 I wonder if he ever returned back to normal and recovered.
