Flex Wheeler was faced with a truly tough option, amputate his leg or potentially risk death. It was no doubt one of the hardest decisions of the bodybuilder’s life. Having a lifestyle based on athletics would be greatly shifted from such a procedure. Throughout his life Flex Wheeler has engaged in not only bodybuilding but the martial arts as well. The leg amputation would no doubt greatly impact him.


Now Flex Wheeler has released even more images of the results of his leg amputation. The Instagram post below is extremely graphic and not for the faint of heart. Be warned, this is a tough image to see.

Flex Wheeler has been through a great deal, yet despite that he continues to battle back. Here’s hoping that the legendary bodybuilder continues on the road to recovery and acceptance.
