Little People, Big World: Matt Roloff Gets Scary News
Matt Roloff is no stranger to visiting the doctor’s office. He was born with diastrophic dysplasia. It is degenerative dwarfism that causes someone to have short limbs and orthopedic problems. So, he had numerous surgeries on his legs as a kid. And, as he gets older, it can cause more health issues.
The Little People, Big World reality star recently went to the doctors for what he thought would be a routine upper endoscopy to check out his esophagus. However, the checkup didn’t go as planned.
Matt explains that the doctor told his fiance Caryn Chandler they had “some complications.” He later found out that he had some “unexpected twists and turns” down to his stomach. They didn’t know about the issue until they did the endoscopy.
Matt Lays Low after Health Scare
Matt admits that it was a rough week for him after the checkup. However, he did get some good news. He didn’t need to get a “computer chip and monitor installed” to monitor the issue.
But, the Little People, Big World cast member did get scary news. He was told he has to get more procedures to help fix the issue.
However, the worst news Matt got was that he couldn’t work. He had to take a few days off and “lay low.” But he is glad that the week is over and is “back in action” today.
The TLC celeb explains that it was a scary ordeal. He was still under anesthesia when “things went crazy.” Caryn was also in the waiting room when the doctor told her what was happening. He says that the news scared her “pretty good.” But he is thankfully doing well.
