DDP is hospitalised for a throat issue

As noted earlier, Diamond Dallas Page was diagnosed with Subglottic Stenosis late last week. Page will be going in for surgery on Wednesday morning and will not be able to talk for a couple of weeks after the procedure.

There have been some incorrect reports floating around stating that Page blamed the stress of participating in The Royal Rumble for his condition, which is not the case. The issue started well before Page's appearance at the Rumble, and Page made it clear to me that competing at The Rumble did not affect his condition at all. In case you missed it, Page posted the following on his Facebook last Friday:


Over the last month I worked my vocal cords so much doing countless interviews ramping up on a Friday January 9th 2015 as I was heading into NYC for the PURE YOGA Workshop... after 14 straight hours of PR and workshops I had lined up... it finally shut my voice almost off... I could barely go past a whisper... Thank GOD I didn't have the next workshop till Sunday... So Bk and I hopped on a train to headed for a day of travel to Hyatt for the Newport RI Workshop run by my buddy Jennifer... I was really looking forward to having a drink with so many of Team DDPY that had made the journey to RI early but when I got there I literally had NO VOICE at all... It was kinda scary to me because this was the first time this had ever happened to me... LIKE NO VOICE AT ALL... So when we got to our room Bk made me take a hot shower for 2 hours till my throat started to loosened up (Sound Familiar ... Mist in my throat... Bk is one Smart mommy) She also left the shower going all night so it would act as a humidifier (Smart SMART lady my future Wife:)

I woke up in the am and I could semi talk and considering I had 151 paid members of Team DDPY members waiting... All could think was Thank GOD and Bk... The people who come to my workshops are AMAZING! I encourage everyone and anyone at any fitness level to give one a try and you'll know what all the fuss is about:) Most of them drove anywhere from 1 to 13 hours to see me and there was No Way I was going to disappoint any of them... I HAD TO PERFORM and with GOD's HELP I did a 4 1/2 hour workshop and stood for pictures and I'll be damned it wasn't maybe the best one I've ever done...
Every time I do a DDPY Workshop they get better...

Right after I finished greeting everyone my voice started shutting down again. Bk and I flew back to the ATL that night getting back to the Crib about 9ish...

Rest HA HA HA that's funny (I can always count on my brother Scott Hall to pull me aside when see's me pushing... Dallie go take some time for you bro... he will make me shut down but this time we were both a little busy) I rested but it really didn't help much because when I got home I had to jump right back to building the DDPY Performance Center and our APP/Network ... About 5 days in I could semi talk but I figure I'm not Really getting any better so I go see my family doc who says he's going to give me the Steroid pack a shot (that hurt like hell) and pregnazone (I aborted the spelling there... Ha who cares its bad s--t I never take it but this time I felt I better do what I'm told) He also gave me a name to an ENT doc just in case none of that worked...

Oh Yeah we also needed to pack for the biggest moment in the last 13 years for Jake Scott Steve and I... We (all of the Crib Crew... YES I flew my whole Crew who worked on our movie out there to Park City because I was so DAMN PROUD of all those guys who worked so hard on our movie and they did an AWARD Winning job... Steve felt the same way and showed it by Renting the Multi Million dollar Park City Crib) for the all the boys to stay at for Premier of "The Resurrection of Jake the Snake"

So I knew it was going to be time to turn up on the interviews again...

So just to be safe I figure I better go see the ENT doctor that my family doc had given me before I leave for PC... When I see him he does the same thing with that camera... He put that long 18 inch hose up my nose not once but twice and he pulls it out like a whip (I'm like WTF) and he says Ooooh that's not good... I say great bedside manner doc... he says That's NO GOOD AT ALL... iT'S REALLY BAD ... And I say... How Bad is Bad... and he says... it's not Cancer Bad... but it's BAD...

I've never seen this before... and he turns and walks out of the room and comes back with the head cheese doctor and they do the camera thing AGAIN... UP my nose Again like he's putting Rota Ruder in a toilet and he's like... you have serious reflux issues... worst I've ever seen and then he pushes the camera DEEPER and you guested it... I start gagging and I say to the doctors... I'm choking on this F***ing thing doc ... I said to the doc with the camera and he says... you're not choking... I'm thinking WTF did he just say and I say I am choking and mumble out I CAN'T BREATHE and the f--king doc says to me NO YOU'RE NOT CHOKING YOU CAN BREATHE ... so now I start moving with a WTF purpose as I'm MUMBLING... NO I CAN'T and he WHIPPED the camera out which tripped something and I got my breathe back in about 5 seconds...

I wasn't really mad... He was so convincing I just thought to myself I must be being a p---y and I shook it off... The doctor told me take these pills and in haller (which would end up doing nothing) and told me to come back in a month. Hmmmmmmmm Thank GOD Sheri Adair came by see me to get her scoop on the DDPY PC for her "Best Self" magazine and gave me my New maybe lifesaving ENT... Btw this was yesterday... Who knows what would have happen without her coming by...

Back to Park City
So Thank GOD I'm in Park City with two of the most entertaining promo guys on the planet (Jake and Scott and even Steve were Amazing... Damn Steve came a long way from getting ready to be on Shark TANK with me... I'm so Proud of him on so many levels)

Anyway I think I could have just pushed through all the interviews while we were in Park City which is so beautiful but it's also so DRY which actually started my noise bleeding out of Nowhere (back in the 80tys I might have understood
nose bleeding wink emoticon but the last 30 years ... I was like WTF) my throats was so dry Bk and Kim went out to get me a humidifier but I couldn't use it yet cause I had to sneak out on Saturday morning to fly to the ROYAL RUMBLE and know one knew except Steve and I told Scott and Jake right before I left...

I can't fly into PHILLY because the fans will see me at the airport so they had to fly me into Newark and the only flights (connections) I can get on gets me in like midnight after flying all day (Brutal on my throat) next day they limo us in and hide us on the bus for about 8 hours so nobody knows who there (BUBBA was so funny... for the first 5 hours he held up good but the last 3 hours he was like a caged animal) anyway if you saw the Rumble (can't believe because of weather they had to play the RUMBLE on Monday RAW... Thank You GOD... Best push I ever got with the company... special Thanks to PS Hayes and Carrano... Stardust... FanDango... Wyatt and Rusev smile emoticon You know it was an Awesome night for DDP and DDPY ... Diamond Cutters for EVERYONE:) Next morning cause of the weather it took me 14 hours to get back to Park City (BRUTAL but Worth IT)... I needed to get back for our second showing of Jake's movie which again was met with RAVE Reviews smile emoticon Here are a few.
