All Black Adam Thomson unable to walk after mystery illness

Post by comets »

Ex-All Black flanker Adam Thomson has been unable to walk after being struck down by a mystery illness in Japan.

Thomson, 35, has been in hospital in Tokyo for over a week with doctors struggling to identify the problem that has given Thomson "excruciating pain".

The 29-test All Black was rushed to the A&E department in the middle of the night

Thomson's partner, Jessie Gurunathan, said there was still no official diagnosis, but Thomson's illness was suspected to be "a severe infection that's caused serious internal inflamation & excruciating pain".

Thomson played almost a century of Super Rugby matches for the Highlanders, Reds and Rebels and first played in Tokyo in 2013.

In 2008, Thomson appeared in court charged with assaulting his former partner - children's programme presenter Joanna Holley - following a domestic incident. The charges were later dropped.

His face in the 2nd pic makes me sad, lets hope its not that famous MND which Joost had :(

TV presenter's mystery illness

Jan 31 2009

Television beauty Jessie Gurunathan is battling a mystery illness after collapsing with what doctors fear was viral meningitis.

The former Miss World New Zealand runner-up and Miss Popularity winner-turned TV presenter was rushed to Waikato Hospital in an ambulance after becoming gravely ill at a conference she was covering three weeks ago.

Since she got sick in the Waikato & he got sick somewhere in Japan, I'm ruling out bad feng shui for their house as the cause.

I reckon she is some sort of super carrier and on average 1 in every 1600 shags will leave her partner seriously ill.

Worth the risk ?

Damn, for a near ginga Thomson has got some game - she's hot, and I think the crazy bird who accused him of domestic violence was alright back in the day.

Didn't his latest one go out with McCaw for a while?

I reckon that was the beginning of the end of his All Blacks career.

Even his most ardent admirers - a tie between the bird above and me - found it difficult to justify his credentials as a top line test number six after that effort.

And Angus MacDonald , her dad is mayor of Kapiti. She’s not the one he assaulted though.

His arm was hanging useless by his side after he had injured his shoulder just before the lame attempt of a tackle on Samo.
The coaching staff didn't want him to come off after Read had already been subbed off in the 12 minute leaving our bench a bit thin.

Never - his legacy is a 2011 World Cup. Aussies cannot see that just a missed tackle when he was fecked by injury. They can have their gushy moment - I'll have ours thanks

Literally the only person in this thread to intimate it damaged his legacy whatsoever was a kiwi, you silly old queen.

He didn't assault the other one, she was drunk and being a dick, and then the cops decide they'd be idiots and ignore every witness.

Not saying it diminished his legacy or that he wasn't carrying his injury.

Just that it signalled the beginning of the end of his All Blacks career.

Even the greats have got to go sometime.

That's really not good... stories about 'severe infections' and high levels of pain scare me. For all the hi tech medical care in the world, we still have these sorts of cases popping up. I'd hate to be in his shoes right now, dealing with this.

Hope he makes a full recovery and suffers no after effects. Best wishes to that man.

Read last night that is is a severe infection of the spinal discs. Which can be very serious. But they can treat the man. Sorry, no link, was on phone.

Hope he recovers 100%.

Huh?

He's a 6'4 All Black and she's a kiwi. Seems about par.

This is what punching above your weight looks like

He won a radio competition for biggest puncher in the UK. They had a kid since the story first broke, so fair play to him, he must be able to chat the queen out of her knickers. :lol:
