Though Lamar Odom is out of his coma, he is not yet out of the woods, and his mental state is considered unstable. Khloe Kardashian is still by his side as he underwent two emergency surgeries today. Odom will likely face additional surgeries in the future and will need a great deal of therapy. For now, he still has trouble sitting up, and cannot stand.
The Inquisitr reported that the brothel where Odom overdosed and had several strokes is actually profiting off Odom’s medical emergency. Brothel owner Dennis Hof has refused to let the Kardashians handle all of the press surrounding Odom’s situation. Hof is even charging patrons $500 a peek at the room where they found Odom unconscious. The same room is also already booked for months by johns looking to use a legal prostitute in Nevada. Oddly enough, Hof is also the former boyfriend of Heidi Fleiss.
TMZ broke the story that Lamar Odom has undergone two emergency chest surgeries today. All of the medical treatments and setbacks have caused doctors to label Odom’s mental state as “fragile,” and they have banned everyone but Khloe Kardashian from his hospital room.
“We’re told the procedures involved chest issues, but we do not know if it’s connected to his lungs or heart. Our sources say the surgeries have put Lamar in “a fragile mental state.” We’re told he’s emotional and at times, very upset.”
People Magazine is stressing that Odom is on dialysis and has a long road ahead with diminished kidney function. Friends told People that Odom is having trouble standing, and with his height, it is hard to support him.
“Lamar is doing okay. There are still many questions about what will happen in the future,” the source says. “Lamar still can’t stand up alone. He has to be helped to a chair right by his bed. He is receiving antibiotics for a respiratory infection. He is also still receiving dialysis.”
At Khloe Kardashian’s behest, Odom was transfered to Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles for more sophisticated medical treatment.
Hollywood Life is reporting that Odom has been struggling with a chest infection since being extubated.
“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.”
Doctors are stressing that in his current state, where everything seems to be setting him off, he needs to remain as calm as possible with minimum stimulation. Sources say that doctors are still concerned about damage that occurred when Odom was without oxygen. They believe it will be a time-consuming uphill battle.
Hollywood Life is also claiming that doctors may want to put Odom back in a medically induced coma to help him heal better and quicker.
“He may need another one to deal with all his lingering health issues. Among his reported organ failures, the former Los Angeles Lakers star is allegedly now has an infection! Despite his amazing turn-around, there are still ‘many questions’ over Lamar’s future.”
Odom has been on dialysis since arriving at the hospital, and there are questions about his liver, heart, and lungs.
Do you think Lamar Odom will make a full recovery? Do you think Keeping Up With The Kardashians will exploit Odom and film him in his weakened mental and medical state?
