Lamar Odom Reportedly Being Treated for an Overdose & Likely Suffers Brain Damage: ‘Virtually Every Drug Imaginable was Found in His System’
Someone in the hospital where Lamar Odom is currently receiving treatment is spilling all Lamar’s private health information.
Lamar Odom had cocaine in his system and track marks on one of his arms … so claim witnesses at the hospital where Lamar lies unconscious.
The witnesses tell TMZ … doctors have determined the former NBA star had cocaine and opiates in his system — but it’s still unclear if the track marks are fresh or from previous drug use.
We’re told doctors have told people close to Lamar the fluid they found in his lungs was the result of crack cocaine use.
We’re also told several of Lamar’s party friends have come to the hospital to see him but they were turned away.
Sources at the Love Ranch where Lamar was staying have said he was taking an herbal substitute for Viagra but no drugs were found. Dennis Hof who owns the Ranch tells TMZ he can’t swear Lamar wasn’t doing drugs in his room.As reported, Lamar is still in a coma and is fighting for his life. According to E!, drugs were indeed found in his system and he’s being treated as an overdose.
A source inside Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas tells us that “drugs were found in his system,” and doctors are treating the situation as an “overdose.” Lamar remains unconscious and on a ventilator but is still alive. It also appears that the former Los Angeles Lakers player suffered from a “loss of oxygen but also possible stroke.”
“So, likely there’s brain damage, but they’re not sure how much,” the source adds. “Virtually every drug imaginable was found in his system.”
Lamar appears to have suffered an “ischemic stroke,” which is caused by a blood clot preventing blood flow to the brain. This type of stroke is often associated with a cocaine overdose, among other drugs. Our source adds that Lamar “had been partying since Friday.”
“He was doing crack cocaine all weekend and he choked on his mucous,” the insider explains. “They’re now having to fix all the damage it has done.”
