Trikratni olimpijski prvak paraliziran

Napovedi glede okrevanja segajo od optimističnih do zelo pesimističnih.

Trikratni olimpijski veslaški prvak Pete Reed je sporočil, da ima levo stran telesa od prsnega koša navzdol paralizirano, po tem ko je v začetku meseca doživel infarkt hrbtenjače.

Reed je kot del četverca brez krmarja prvo zlato za Veliko Britanijo osvojil v Pekingu 2008, drugo leta 2012 v Londonu, v Riu de Janeiru 2016 pa je naslov olimpijskega prvaka osvojil kot del osmerca.

Na začetku meseca je 38-letni Reed sporočil, da je doživel infarkt hrbtenjače, v sredo pa je na Twitter zapisal, da "obstaja zelo majhna verjetnost, da ne bi nič okreval in zelo majhna verjetnost, da bo popolnoma okreval. Najverjetneje bo nekje vmes".

Infarkt hrbtenjače je prekinitev krvnega pretoka v hrbtenici, Reed pa pravi, da je ta vrsta infarkta redek in da zdravniki ne vedo, kaj je vzrok njegovega.

"Do prekinitve krvnega pretoka je prišlo na sredini hrbtenice in trenutno sem od prsnega koša navzdol paraliziran. Roke so še vedno močne, moji možgani pa, kot že prej, povprečni," je še zapisal od lanskega leta upokojeni Reed, ki kljub veliki zdravstveni in osebni preizkušnji ni izgubil smisla za humor.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Public SitRep: Today is #WorldStrokeDay so I thought I would update you on my current situation. Spinal strokes are very rare. They essentially starve the spinal cord of oxygen which can kill off the cells that transmit the signals sent between the brain and (in my case) the lower body. Doctors can’t be certain what caused my stroke. It was in the middle of my spine so I’m currently paralysed beneath my chest. Prognosis: there is no crystal ball. There is a very small chance I will make no recovery and a very small chance I will make a full recovery. Much more likely it will be somewhere in between. To what extent depends on the extent of the damage (which we can’t see) and how well I rehab. All the other news is great. My arms are still strong and my brain is still as average as it ever was. My personal support network continues to be bombproof (thank you so much) and I am handling myself every bit as well as you would hope. I’m keeping a diary of this whole experience - the ups, downs, challenges, triumphs. I’ll keep odd posts coming. Until then, enjoy the rugby (if you’re going to spend a prolonged period in hospital, it may as well be during the 2019 Rugby World Cup). Onwards. • Thank you for all the comments on my last post. Thanks also to all of you who have offered to help... right now I don’t even know what to ask for. I feel like I have everything I need at this stage.
