Lamar Odom Could Reportedly Wind Up Needing a Kidney Transplant

Despite a pretty miraculous recovery after being found unconscious in a Nevada brothel, Lamar Odom might possibly need a kidney transplant.


He pleasantly surprised everyone when he fought his way out of a coma, but TMZ reports that his kidneys are still in really bad shape. He will allegedly be treated with six hours of dialysis a day to aid the failing organs, but it's entirely possible he'll end up needing a transplant.

Lamar was recently moved from a Las Vegas hospital to Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles, where doctors will continue to monitor his condition and figure out how to proceed.

Considering medical staff initially gave him a 50/50 chance of survival, we're just happy Lamar is awake and reportedly getting stronger every day. While we wouldn't wish for anyone to require that kind of surgery, the option to have a second chance at life seems like it far outweighs the alternative.

We wish him a full recovery and all of the help he needs to live the healthiest life possible, both physically and emotionally.
