Lamar Odom: Overdose Update

Former NBA powerhouse Lamar Odom is still in the hospital following his cocaine-induced coma in October. While the athlete has regained consciousness since his cocaine-related health emergency, the struggle to recovery is far from over. In fact, sources close to Odom have reported that it is not likely that he will make a full recovery, or at least not anytime in the near future.

Odom spends his days mostly in the hospital bed, unable to walk by himself. His verbal capabilities are also below normal, and he struggles to communicate to loved ones and hospital staff. As of now, he needs 24/7 care, meaning that it is unlikely that he will be able to leave the hospital anytime soon.

These health issues stem from a fateful day in October when the basketball star was found unconscious at a Nevada brothel. He suffered oxygen deprivation, as well as multiple strokes, as a result of the overdose. We can only hope that his condition will continue to improve and that he will eventually be able to return to his normal life, although it is unlikely that his life will ever be the same.
