Lamar Odom recovery update: Where Khloe Kardashian husband be taken for rehab?
Lamar Odom made remarkable recovery in the first two weeks after being admitted to a hospital in Los Angeles. But now his fight against numerous health issues seems to have reached a stalemate of sorts.
From being comatose and doctors predicting a 50/50 chance of his survival, the former Lakers star seems to have made huge strides. His organs are working fine and his motoring skills have improved considerably.
35-year old Lamar Odom is still unable to speak coherently and it is going to take more than a year as far as walking normally is concerned. There were expectations that the estranged husband of Khloe Kardashian will be able to move to a rehab facility, but this hope has also not materialized thus far.
Despite not being able to walk and issues with his memory, he may be shifted to a long-term rehab center. But his bladder is still problematic. A source was quoted by Radar Online as saying, â€œThere really hasnâ€™t been a lot of improvement in Lamarâ€™s overall health and itâ€™s time for him to transition from care at Cedars to another facility that can focus on his physical rehabilitationâ€¦Medically, there isnâ€™t anything more that can be done for Lamar at Cedars Sinai.â€
Nonetheless a major issue that he is facing is where to go. A report while talking about him says, â€œNow, those closest to the former NBA star are having even finding a group home where Lamar can get the care he needs and still retain some modicum of privacyâ€.
Radar Online report says, â€œLamarâ€™s people want him to be in a quality care facilityâ€¦But they are having trouble finding one that is secure and will provide him with the treatment he needsâ€¦Khloe doesnâ€™t want Lamar to be moved close to her house, because she feels that there would be pressure to visit him every dayâ€¦And another facility they had considered canâ€™t take Lamar because he is still unable to control his bladder. There will be a very, very long road to Lamarâ€™s recovery and itâ€™s unclear whatâ€™s next.â€
