Lamar Odom reportedly suffered 12 strokes! Read on for more details.
It was reported that the former NBA star Lamar Odom suffered a total of 12 strokes after he was found unconscious at a Nevada brothel on October 13. It will be recalled that he was rushed to a Nevada hospital after taking cocaine and “herbal Viagra.” According to his brain scans, those strokes may have impacted his motor skills.
Odom has already woken up and is able to speak too, but the 35-year-old professional basketball player still has other problems to worry about. He still has kidney problems. He has also undergone emergency surgeries last week due to chest issues.
It was reported that he is still receiving 6 hours of dialysis every single day. He was already transferred to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, California and is now recovering there. According to Gawker, Odom may need to undergo a liver transplant in order to survive. According to reports, he also needs to undergo months of physical therapy.
Odom’s wife, Khloe Kardashian, remained by his side since he got hospitalized and even called off her divorce from him. Her request was already granted by a judge. Kardashian was not able to attend family gatherings, including Kim’s baby shower and birthday celebrations, and even cancelled her upcoming book tour just to stay by her husband’s side.
A source close to the 31-year-old “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star said that Odom’s side is the most important place Kardashian needs to be right now.
The couple got married on September 27, 2009. Kardashian filed from divorce from Odom on December 13, 2013. The reality star said that her decision to end their marriage inspired her to have a healthier lifestyle. Her new book, “Strong Looks Better Naked,” provides detailed information about her husband’s drug abuse and cheating issues.
