TNA Star Zema Ion Undergoes Surgery; Doctors Find Tumor

Mike Killam

TNA wrestler Zema Ion sent out a tweet earlier this week, stating that he had been rushed to the hospital for severe stomach pains. 

The former X-Division Champion has updated his condition with a post on his official Facebook account, confirming appendicitis. Further tests have also shown that Ion has a tumor, for which he will require more surgery. 

"I'm alive! Seriously thank you all for the get well wishes. Means the world to me. I was rushed to the hospital lasts night for sharp stomach pains i was having. I couldnt stop puking. For like 9 straight hours. I didnt wanna go to the hosptial, but the pain was too much to handle. Thank god i went, as i ended up having appendicitis and had to have my appendix removed today. I consider this a blessing in disguise too, coz the cat scans also revealed that i have a tumor on my colon and will eventually need another surgery to try and remove it. Hoping it is not cancerous. Pray for me! This really sucks lol"
