Lamar Odom’s Condition: Medical Status & Updates
Its been reported by sources at a Las Vegas hospital that Lamar Odom had an “ischemic stroke,” which is caused by a blood clot preventing blood flow to the brain. This type of stroke is most often associated with a cocaine overdose, but could also be a side effect of Priapism, which is a medical condition of an erection lasting more than 4 hours, and it has been reported that after 6 hours it can become fatal or lead to blood clots. Since he was taking an herbal version of Viagra, this is a possibility.
TMZ is claiming Lamar Odom’s organs have now begun to shut down. Even though Lamar and Khloe reached a settlement and finalized their divorce, technically, while the paperwork is in a slow moving pile in the court system, she is still his wife and making medical decisions for him.
The prognosis is not good. A source confirmed to People Magazine that Lamar has “had a couple of strokes” since he was first found unconscious. “Lamar is still fighting,” the source says. “It’s a waiting game right now. The first 48 hours will tell a lot.”
This cannot be easy for Khloe and she has not left his side, but I know she will do everything she can for him. His father and two children are with him at the hospital as well as friends and family. He’s surrounded by love, but that may not be enough.
In June, Khloe said: “I’m really on high alert for Lamar, because anything, I think, will set him to spiral, and that’s kind of the last thing I want for him.” Lamar’s best friend Jamie Sangouthai, 37, passed away in June as a result of the bacterial skin infection necrotizing fasciitis. IV drug abuse was also cited in the autopsy report as a contributing factor in his death, which has been ruled an accident.
I’m a huge proponent of herbal supplements but not all supplements are safe, especially without medical supervision. And some herbal substitutes for viagra can have dangerous side effects, including causing abnormally low blood pressure and restricting blood flow to vital organs. Foreign made versions are especially known for having unlisted ingredients that have serious side effects when taken with blood pressure medications or antidepressants. Only time will tell if Lamar will pull through. Holding hope and sending prayers. Our prayers are with Lamar and I will update when I know more.
