[ # ] Sinbad’s family gives an update on his health after his stroke
November 21st, 2022 under Sinbad

Two years ago, Sinbad, 66, suffered a stroke, but his family didn’t elaborate on how serious it was. Today, they gave an update on his condition, and it is a miracle that the comedian is still with us.

The family wrote, “On October 25, 2020, Sinbad suffered an ischemic stroke as a result of a blood clot that traveled from his heart to his brain. He was rushed into surgery at West Hills Medical Center that night where the doctor’s performed a thrombectomy to remove the clot and restore normal blood flow to the brain. After surgery, Sinbad was talking and moving with some weakness, but the prognosis was very promising. The next day, however, another blood clot formed, half the size of the first. He successfully underwent the same surgery again, but it took a little more from him than the first surgery.”

After the surgery, his brain began to swell, and they did a craniotomy. During the operation, doctors discovered a bleed in his brain. Instead of waking him up post-op, they put him in an induced coma and placed him on a ventilator. And that is how he spent the next several weeks.

When he finally woke up, his left side was paralyzed. He spent the next several months in rehab. And then, nearly nine months after that fateful night, he was finally sent home.

Since then, he has been getting stronger. However, all of the therapy has drained him of his savings. Therefore his family is asking for some financial help so he can continue to improve. If you would like to donate to his care, you can do so at the site that Sinbad’s family set up.

Along with asking for money, they thanked us for our prayers. He had a 30% chance of survival, and they believe “Sinbad is here because of the multitude of prayers from all who know and love him. We are eternally grateful. Every outpouring of love and the memories of how he has touched all of you have not gone unheard, unseen, or unfelt. Thank you. You have lifted his spirits along the way and inspired the entire family.”
