damn sad story


I don't see why anybody in this thread is offering him sympathy. This is a man that just a few years ago was making a scene trying to prove to the world he never had HIV. Meaning, if you were an established professional boxer, he would show no regard and sooner put your life at risk. Tommy Gunn or not, the man is a scumbag.

Think maybe he has some psychological issues as well, and we can cut him a little slack.

In the end, Karma will give Tommy his due. No need for me to fuel the fire.

Damn I can't believe he's only 44 and looks that bad. That is sad, I think he may have been surrounded by to many "yes" people early on. Phone Post

Agreed.  Yeah, him claiming he didn't have HIV and still seeking out fights is shitty, but looking at some of the shit he's claimed and said shows that he's not got a full set of working gears up there and perhaps he legitimately believes he's not ill

Pretty sure Mercer gave him AIDS with that KO.
Most Brutal KO in Boxing history IMO.

The cure for AIDS is cash. South Park taught us that. But he refused to believe the diagnosis.

According to this "questionable" article, he's seriously ill with Miller Fisher Syndrome/Guillain Barre Syndrome, not AIDS.  And that 's just the tip of the iceberg...

"That’s when the real trouble began. Morrison then got a tick bite to his chest, which became infected. Following surgery, 12ft of gauze was carelessly left in the chest for 8 days, causing his already weakened body to fall into septic shock. Once the gauze was removed, he also suffered a fall, torticollis, the chest wound, a sacrum wound, a hip wound, and had to have a gtube (feeding tube) inserted.

Setbacks continued to compound matters. Trisha states that three further surgeries were needed for insertion of the gtube due to a nurse pulling out the original and his body again going into septic shock. Then there was the need for the installation of a PICC Line (Inserted Catheter), along with potassium supplement and iron supplement overdose. Tommy Morrison was in bad shape and the cause was a mystery.

Finally, doctors diagnosed him with Miller Fisher Syndrome/Guillain Barre Syndrome, which had left him unable to speak, eat, move, or breathe. He underwent intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) treatment and had to be ventilated due to pneumonia. He has suffered broken teeth sustained during intubation, had to have fluid around his heart and lungs drained, endured urinary tract infections,  as well as hemolytic anemia and seizures due to contra medications.

She also adds that there have been several medical mistakes along the way, including oxygen being turned off in error by a nurse, CT scan results not followed up by a doctor causing coughing up of blood and quick bronchoscopy, and results of an ultrasound of veins not being followed up, causing a delay in the removal of infected PICC line.

The maladies go on and on. It took two surgeries to remove an infected PICC line and Woundvac treatment was needed for his sacrum and hip wound. A temporary tracheotomy tube had to be inserted for breathing, malnutrition caused fluctuating nutrition levels, and his platelets and blood counts were critically low."

I agree. If this were the average dude on the street nobody would bat an eyelid at this story.

What's sad is that he was willing to put others' health at risk in order for one last run. Phone Post 3.0
