Joan Rivers was supposed to undergo a routine surgical procedure, but that all turned deadly after a doctor, who arrived at the clinic with the comic’s entourage, stepped in and performed an unplanned biopsy on her vocal cords.
The procedure is only to be carried out in a hospital.
Joan Rivers is on life support and is completely dependant on machines to stay alive, say doctors.
Rivers was rushed to the hospital after she stopped breathing during throat surgery on Thursday. The comic’s heart also stopped but was restarted. Early reports said she was put into a medically induced coma, but now we are learning her condition is much worse than believed.
According to reports, the family will have to decide in the next couple of days whether to keep the 81-year-old on life support. Continue reading
It is safe to say that funny lady Joan Rivers has had a tough morning. After her heart stopped during a medical procedure, Rivers was transported to the hospital and immediately put into a medically induced coma.
It won’t be a long sleep as doctors are planning on bringing her out of the coma this weekend.
It is unclear why Rivers was placed in a coma, but many suspect that doctors have done so to allow her body to recuperate. Continue reading
Singer John Mayer had a tour planned for the near future, but he’s had to cancel it, due to throat problem.
He says that when he was in rehearsal the other day, something did not feel right in his throat whilst singing, and sure enough, after visiting the doctor, there was an issue.
Mayer explains his throat problem in his blog saying:
“During rehearsal on Tuesday, it came to mind that I should see my throat doctor because something didn’t feel/sound right. I went in for a visit on Wednesday and a scope of my vocal cords revealed that the granuloma has grown back where it had mostly healed. This is bad news. Because of this, I have no choice but to take an indefinite break from live performing. Though there will be a day when all of this will be behind me, it will sideline me for a longer period of time than I care to have you count down… I want to explain this a bit more in depth than I have in the past, because I know there’s some confusion as to what this condition is; a granuloma forms and continues to snowball because it’s in a spot where the vocal cords hit together and there’s no way to really give it a chance to heal without a good stretch of time and some pretty intensive treatment. In short, it’s one giant pain in the ass.”
Mayer had surgery just a short time ago in October 2011, to remove a granuloma near his vocal cords, and had to rest his vocals for a month. Now he’s back in the same boat.
