Trista Sutter Gives Update On Ryan’s Illness

Fan favorite and first-ever Bachelorette Trista Sutter shared an update on how Ryan is doing as he continues to fight Lyme disease. This disease has been a topic of interest lately as it was also what contributed to Daisy Kent losing her hearing.

Trista appeared on Chris Harrison’s Most Dramatic Podcast to talk about life lately including how her husband Ryan is doing with his battle with Lyme disease. In the beginning, Ryan really struggled and they had no idea what was wrong with him. Some days he could not even get out of bed.

Now, Trista shared that Ryan is doing better. She said, “He definitely has a lot of ups and downs still and really would like to feel better at least most of the time. He says he’s about 80%. I would go to his doctor’s appointments with him because he is so incredibly humble. So he’s like, ‘Oh I don’t want to complain about whatever’s going on with me,’ even if it’s really significant.”

She went on to say, “I would tell his doctors, ‘You don’t understand, he has an incredibly high pain tolerance.’ If it was me that was going through what he’s going through, I would be bedridden every single day and maybe even hospitalized. He is able to get through this because he’s freaking superhuman. I don’t understand it.”

Ryan’s Struggles In The Beginning

In the beginning, Ryan Sutter struggled. He was in a lot of pain, sleeping 16 hours a day, and had no clue what was wrong. Trista and Ryan sought out many doctors and he completed many diagnostic tests to try and figure out what was wrong with him.

His symptoms began in March 2020 and he was not officially diagnosed until May 2021. Now, he uses unconventional therapy to treat his disease including infrared sauna therapy. Some believe this treatment can help detoxify the body. Ryan also uses  bee venom therapy, in which he stings himself with honeybees three times every other day to “weaken the bacteria.”
