Get well Bruce. Wishing you a speedy and full recovery. Can’t wait to see you in Toronto in 2024!— Noam Samson (@NoamJSamson) September 27, 2023
Worst pain in my life was when I had a perforated peptic ulcer. I had been ignoring my symptoms for awhile, so didn’t even know I had an ulcer until waking up from emergency surgery. Doc told me I very well could’ve died. So glad Bruce is not being foolish like I was. Get Well!— Vallikat (@Vallikat) September 27, 2023
Last year, Springsteen had seen backlash over high ticket prices caused by Ticketmaster’s “dynamic pricing model” that allows prices to rise as demand for tickets goes up. According to Fox News reporting at the time, Springsteen called the tickets “very affordable” and joked about offering refunds. “I know it was unpopular with some fans,” he said. “But if there’s any complaints on the way out, you can have your money back.” [firefly_poll] “Peptic ulcers are open sores that develop on the inside lining of your stomach and the upper portion of your small intestine,” according to the Mayo Clinic. “The most common causes of peptic ulcers are infection with the bacterium Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) and long-term use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin IB, others) and naproxen sodium (Aleve).” This article appeared originally on The Western Journal.
Please get well. Focus on that. I’m so disappointed but I’m going to show a little faith; there’s magic in the night.— Lisa Bednarski (@LisaBednarski) September 27, 2023
