Doctors Shocked by The Rate of Lamar Odom’s Recovery
Lamar Odom isn't out of the woods yet, but where he was once believed to be fighting for his life, doctors are saying he's making a remarkable recovery.
Odom was found unconscious at a Nevada brothel earlier this month after a likely drug binge, experienced multiple strokes and fell into a coma. After several days he was relocated to a Los Angeles hospital, where he has been hospitalized since.
According to TMZ, Odom was previously a candidate for kidney transplants, but he'll no longer need them. And where he was also at the mercy of daily dialysis treatment, he's slowly weaning off of it. The site claims that doctors are shocked by the rate at which he's improving. Still, he's got intensive therapy to come to repair the damage he sustained during his strokes, and his motor skills are remain impaired.
Last week, Odom and Khloe Kardashian, who had previously filed for divorce that had never been finalized by a judge, decided to withdraw their petition to legally separate. Kardashian insists it doesn't mean the couple intend to immediately reconcile.
"There are too many other important things, too many medical things. It’s not even in our brains thinking about us as a couple or having a relationship right now," she told PEOPLE in a story published Wednesday (October 28). "It’s not anything sexual or intimate...I want to be his support system. Tragedy does make you reassess a lot of things, but when it comes to our relationship, it’s the same, except I’m here supporting him fully."
