The following is a report by LuFisto from F4WOnline.com:
I just want to take a few moments to explain what happened to me on Saturday night. I can see that a lot of people started to ask questions so I want to make sure that the real story is out and not speculations or lies.
On Saturday night, at 30 years old, I suffered a stroke.
For those who donâ€™t know much about this stuff, a stroke, also called a cerebrovascular accident (CVA), is the rapidly developing loss of brain function due to disturbance in the blood supply to the brain, caused by a blocked or burst blood vessel.
About 30 minutes after my match at NCW last Saturday, I just couldnâ€™t catch my breath. Then, I started to have a lot of pain in my chest and my left arm went numb. Laying down on the floor close to a door so I could breathe, as Guil Reno was trying to keep me awake, I lost sensation on the left side of my face. Wrestler Alex Price then made the right and quick decision to call the paramedics right away.
My left eye closed, my head was hurting, I couldnâ€™t open my mouth completely and I was seeing light spots everywhereâ€¦ The ambulance arrived and although I was answering all the questions, I was really confused and lost. Thanx to Guil and Camille though, I never lost conscience.
Mademoiselle Rachelle jumped in the ambulance with me as the sirens were heard. At the hospital, I quickly got a first scan and a bunch of testâ€¦ Diagnosis: Possible CVA. They gave me aspirin and I canâ€™t remember what they did afterâ€¦ I was then transferred to another hospital where a neurologist was waiting for meâ€¦
Oxygen tank, blood and strength testsâ€¦ And my crying mom telling me everything would be alrightâ€¦ Then, itâ€™s pretty much blurred until I got to an emergency room where my mom, her boyfriend and my partner in crime and dear friend Chakal came to see me.
So I had 2 cerebral scans, one MRI and they even checked my lungs. Final diagnosis: Minor stroke. However, the good news is that the CVA didnâ€™t leave any permanent damage. No scars were found on the brain and I got my full strength back 2 days later.
