His biggest complaint was the surgery was scheduled for 8AM and they didn't take him down to surgery until 3PM and he wasn't back in the room until 8PM.

    This is major surgery, but there was NO dramatic 'rush to hospital'. Pre-op, his doctor predicted he could to return to full activity and diving in two months. However, Tom is otherwise in extremely good health; post-op he is doing exceptionally well and I suspect he will beat the prediction.

    This information was provided to me last week via e-mail from Tom himself and later via telephone conversation with Patti Mount, his wife, on Tuesday afternoon. Today I spoke with Dr Peri Blum, a consulting MD on his case and also a technical diver, who confirmed again that Tom is doing very well.

    Re: Rumor: Tom Mount Rushed To Hospital

    I'm glad he's doing fine!
    Could a mod change the title of the thread to reflect the real situation / good news on recovery?

    Wait, you're telling that Tom had that aortic valve defect all along, did the dives he did and never got a major deco hit (well I'm assuming here as I don't know the man personally but I guess it would have been known if the boss of a major tech agency did) ? I'm glad if it's true and I hope it is but that just makes me wonder, is all.
    This is genuine technical/medical/deco interest here. I'd like to read opinions of specialists here.
    Best
