Good to see Tom healthy and leave everything behind unlike some guys making comebacks and such

Howís Melvin Anthony doing? Heard heís out now, going to make a comeback too?

He lost a kidney and is on immunosuppressive drugs for life,that is ridiculously far from healthy.

Very true, canít argue with that

At least he left it all behind and has nothing to do with bbing anymore

Guys like Don long and flex, after transplants still living the life and doing gear

Actually, he must have lost the function of both his kidneys. You only need one of them. The other one is simply a back up.

Compared to some, like Derek Anthony, he is very healthy. Simply because he is still alive. I guess the immunosuppressive meds aren't doing the trick since he needs another transplant. So compared to many of us he is not healthy at all. I wish him the best.

Flex is fucked,won't last long. And Dong has made it very long without further incident,except for the jail.

I heard from a doc that these transplant recipients often die from a moderate infection because they are suppressing immune sys.

However,I think they have started developing more drugs for that purpose that are easier,and they are combining them with the immunosup now.

Something similar happened to Luke Wood, he had a transplant, complications and then died

Feel bad for the guy after viewing that.  Seems like he has a good attitude despite his situation.

That being said, he's still in denial about how he (and other bodybuilders/Nichols "clients") ended up dead or borderline walking dead.

- Prince now claims that he has some genetic abnormality that caused his kidneys to fail.  What happened to the Advil theory?  Why aren't other Prince family members carpooling to dialysis with him, as a genetic condition likely affects more than just one person.

- He still downplays the role of drugs - both in bodybuilding and the demise of his health.  "It was all about the training.  The drugs were secondary."  LOlÖ..ok.  When asked if the drugs caused (or even contributed) to his kidneys melting, his answer was "I don't think so", or maybe a bit, etc.

- He then contradicts himself when asked if he would want his sons to get into bodybuiding (and the lifestyle), he said an immediate NO.  At least he's not willing to support his kids using drugs  like Lee Labrada.

- Prince also tells Shawn Rat that he would have blood tests regularly WAY earlier that he did, as it was too late when the bad news was discovered.  He must be looking for that pesky genetic disorder. 


Sad story altogether...Ö..

Good interview. I remember him posting here years ago about his wife starting a small property management business. Glad to see that venture really took off. For most pros, bodybuilding is a complete waste of time.

Agreed.  He looks like maybe a buck thirty-five.  I wish him health now and a life filled with joy from the rewards of hard work and a loving family.

Development of Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis after Anabolic Steroid Abuse


In summary, we present the first series of FSGS in bodybuilders who abused AASs. These patients may present with either asymptomatic proteinuria or full nephrotic syndrome and heterogeneous histologic variants of FSGS. Although these patients responded well to discontinuation of AAS use, weight loss, and RAS blockade, others may progress to ESRD. Elevated lean body mass and long-term AAS abuse should be added to the list of causes of secondary FSGS.

What I know is that I am happy both my kidneys are functioning normally according to my doctor. Kidney failure is horrible.

As someone who "abused"/high dose (4g+), the amounts guys like Craig Titus& Milo's used, must be lucky I never had "bad problems" from anabolics use. Usually it was something else that put me in the hospital. He'll, I've been to I was in "kidney faliure" at least 2x but it's always "fixed" itself.

Yea I know what I know what he used to sound. Used to see him everyday at gold's or world's. Dude was the widest person I've still ever seen. Compared to what he is now, he's like 1/3 his old size.

I wish he would've taken about how he got clean. The shut hrle put I his veins went straight to kidneys, not the "Advil".
