Oh no! Lamar Odom has reportedly undergone two emergency surgeries on his chest, and they have taken a toll on him both mentally and emotionally. Is he OK? Has he taken a turn worse? Find out all the scary details here.
Lamar Odom, 35, is nowhere near out of the woods, following his reported drug overdose on Oct. 13, as a new report claims he just underwent two emergency surgeries on his chest. The former NBA player was having chest issues, but TMZ isn’t sure if they were connected to his lungs or heart.
The news was first reported by TMZ, and sources told the site these surgeries have now put Lamar in a “fragile state of mind.” He’s emotional and very upset about everything. Furthermore, all visitors have been banned from seeing Lamar — everyone except his wife, Khloe Kardashian, that is. Doctors want Lamar to be in a calm environment while he deals with the immediate physical and mental issues he’s currently facing.
As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, Lamar is also reportedly suffering from an infection and he’s struggling to stand up. Lamar’s receiving the “best medical treatment possible,” a source told PEOPLE, but Lamar still has a long road to recovery ahead. And at this point, things are not looking great for the basketball star.
Lamar has been receiving care at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, California since Oct. 19. Before that, and following his three-day party binge at a legal brothel, Lamar was being treated at Las Vegas’ Sunrise Hospital. Khloe has been by his side every step of the way, and we can only imagine her support is what’s going to help get him through this trying time.
Our thoughts remain with Lamar, as we hope he has a speedy recovery from this point forward. Please send your positive thoughts to Lamar in the comments below.
