body “crashed” following an eruption of his Crohn’s disease.While the incident occurred over five years ago, he opened up to Men’s Health earlier this year about the condition, saying that he had been trying to build more muscle in order to aid him in auditioning for more adult roles.
However, in late 2017, he experienced horrible stomach pains and underwent a colonoscopy to figure out the issue. He then had an emergency procedure to remove six inches of his lower intestine.He weighed just 105 pounds and survived off intravenous foods with an ostomy bag for several months.“The last thought I had was, ‘Holy s–t, this could be it,’” he recalled, adding that his body was “vibrating” after going into septic shock.“If this is it, I’m not happy.
I worked a lot. I did a lot of things. I didn’t enjoy any of this. This can’t be it,” he recounted the thoughts that zoomed through his mind at the time.Thankfully, Williams recovered and now has implemented dramatic changes in his lifestyle to keep him healthy.
