Matt Roloff, the renowned star of the hit TV series “Little People, Big World,” has announced that he is “back in action” following a series of significant complications during a routine hospital visit. The 61-year-old patriarch of the Roloff family took to his Instagram on May 22 to share the unexpected turn of events during his routine endoscopy.
In his Instagram post, Matt Roloff revealed that he had a challenging week when things did not go as planned during the procedure. His doctor informed his fiancée, Caryn Chandler, about some unforeseen medical complications. He explained that there were unexpected twists and turns in his gastrointestinal tract, leading down to the stomach. Fortunately, he did not require the installation of a computer chip and monitor, which came as a relief. However, more medical procedures are still needed to address the issue. As a result, Matt had to take a few days off work and rest.
An upper endoscopy is a medical procedure that involves the use of a flexible tube with a camera to examine the esophagus, stomach, and duodenum (the upper part of the small intestine). This procedure is necessary to identify abnormalities such as acid reflux, stomach ulcers, celiac disease, and other digestive tract problems, as explained by the National Institutes of Health.
While Matt Roloff did not delve into the specifics of the additional procedures that he needs, he expressed his determination to get back in action. Fans rallied behind him, offering their support and well wishes during this challenging time.
One fan empathized with the unpleasant experience of going to the hospital and encouraged Matt, saying that he would overcome the next visit smoothly. Another curious follower sought further information about Matt’s current health status and diagnosis. Additionally, a concerned viewer mentioned the potential positive impact of such situations in fostering reconciliation within the family, alluding to the feud between Matt and his son Zach, which played out in season 22 of “Little People, Big World.”
Matt’s decision to prevent Zach from buying the family farm left fans puzzled and frustrated, as it unfolded on the show. In response to the backlash, Matt addressed the negativity on social media and urged people not to resort to mean-spirited behavior. He emphasized the importance of living a more positive and compassionate life.
In a heartwarming turn of events, it seems that Matt’s one-year-old grandson, Josiah, managed to bridge the gap between his father and grandfather. Matt shared a photo with his son Jeremy, expressing his astonishment at how quickly time flies and celebrating Josiah’s first birthday. However, despite the joyous occasion, some fans continued to express their disappointment with Matt’s actions.
In a separate post, Matt commemorated the birthday of his twins, Zach and Jeremy, by sharing a nostalgic picture of them playing in the renowned Roloff Farm pumpkin patch. While many fans extended their birthday wishes and admiration, others seized the opportunity to criticize Matt’s parenting choices and his treatment of his children.
Although this update may not bring the best news for the Roloff family, fans remain supportive and hopeful that Matt Roloff’s health journey will progress smoothly. Let’s share this update with fellow fans of the show to keep them informed about the recent developments.
