Matt Roloff Shares Scary Health News

Matt Roloff is opening up about some scary health news. In an Instagram post alongside a photo of him laying in a hospital bed, Matt admitted “Last week was a bit rough. 

He went on to explain that he “went in for what l thought was routine upper endoscopy to check out my esophagus when things don’t go as planned.”

Matt continued, explaining that the doctor told “Caryn ‘we had some complications.’ Turns out, I have some unexpected twists n turns leading down to the stomach,” Matt explained. 

“Good news is, I didn’t need the computer chip and monitor installed!” However, as he continued, the “scary news [is there] is more work to be done. Worst news is I had to take a few days off working and lay low.”

While Matt didn’t go into detail about what the “work to be done” is, he revealed that he’s already back to work as he and his medical team work through his stomach issues.

Thousands of his followers took to his comments section to wish him well. “Never a fun ride to the hospital to only stay there— You’ll fly through the next visit though, too! Keep well buddy,” one person wrote. “Sorry to hear this Matt. But lots of prayers coming your way for a fast recovery and diagnosis,” another added.

Roloff’s hospitalization comes a little more than two months after he revealed that he and his longtime partner Caryn Chandler are engaged.

In an exclusive statement shared with People, Matt shared the good news first with fans. He and Chandler first started dating in 2017.

“After six wonderful years together, I asked Caryn to marry me and she said yes!” Roloff revealed to People. “Our plan is to enjoy our engagement and we are looking forward to a simple but elegant wedding in 2024.”

Matt and Caryn started dating after he and his ex-wife Amy Roloff divorced. Caryn was a former employee of the Roloff family farm.

Amy also remarried in 2021 to her now husband Chris. TLC reports that despite a rocky beginning to their divorce, Amy, Matt, and their respective partners have managed to “maintain a friendly relationship, even enjoying a double date together at the farm to kick off pumpkin season last fall.”

Caryn and Matt have since moved off the farm part-time and live in Arizona. Now the couple is currently building a second home as well. Matt has been detailing the process of the build on Instagram.

“Craziest, most fun, and exciting time in my life …Yes .. it’s exhausting but life at the ripe old age of 61 is still exhilarating. building things has always been a passion of mine. Now I’m having fun. Oh… and the negative Nelly’s out there … sorry you’re not having fun in life,” Matt wrote in his latest house post.

Matt’s four children have yet to offer their congratulations publicly. Nonetheless, here’s to the happy soon-to-be betrothed couple.
