We’re only hours away from the end of the year and for many, it’s a time to look back and reflect on the past year. Daniel Wu took to social media to talk about his health scare earlier this year. The before and after photo of his drastic change in appearance shows a visibly thinner Daniel after losing most of his muscle mass.
I would have to say the second half of 2019 was much better than the first half. In January I was in the best shape of my 40’s then in March I was hospitalized with a burst appendix that I had thought was food poisoning so waited three days before I finally went to the hospital. I was so septic by that time that I almost lost my life. I spent a week in the hospital and was not allowed to eat thus losing 18 pounds and most of my muscle mass as you can see on the right. After being released I was not allowed to workout for another 6 weeks. It took me the rest of the year to gain back the weight and get back into shape. This was a big wake up call for me to not take my health for granted. So here’s to good health for 2020 because without your health you have nothing. If there is something bothering you, don’t procrastinate and get it checked out. You can never be too safe.
It looks like his story ends well as he has eventually recovered and gotten back in shape. Speaking from experience, the actor advises everyone to stay healthy because nothing is more important. Wise words indeed. Happy 2020!
