What happened to Krayzie Bone?
Krayzie Bone checked himself into a Los Angeles hospital on Friday after reportedly started coughing large amounts of blood, according to AllHipHop. He is said to be on a ventilator after having undergone surgery to deal with a respiratory issue he’s been battling.
The report further mentioned that the doctors found an artery leaking inside one of his lungs from a CAT scan. The rapper was sedated and placed on breathing support ever since undergoing urgent surgery. AllHipHop also got to know from sources that the 50-year-old also stopped smoking a few months ago.
According to Cleveland Clinic, Sarcoidosis is a condition that causes one’s immune system to form lumps and nodules called granulomas. In some cases, an individual’s immune system overreacts to Sarcoidosis, which leads to permanent lung scarring.
The condition is known to cause inflammatory cells to form in different parts of the body. In this case, the doctors detected internal bleeding. As a result, the rapper had to undergo a procedure to correct the situation. However, even after the procedure, his condition worsened.
