After Suffering Stroke 2 Years Ago, Sinbad Learning to Walk Again on Road to Recovery

It wasn’t widely known that comedian Sinbad had suffered a stroke back in 2020. His family has taken to social media to alert his fans that he is still in recovery as he is learning how to walk two years later.

With a recent post on Instagram, the family has displayed a recent picture of the famed comic being assisted by a nurse as he goes through his rehabilitation process. They also state the appreciation the Different World actor has for the fans who check up on him in this trying time. His family has set up a website that fans go check out to see his progress as he works his way back from the stroke he suffered two years ago.

“Sinbad appreciates all the love and support you have shown him over the last two years. Many of you have asked for updates and if there is anything Sinbad needs or what you can do to help. As a result, the family has created a site where you can keep up to date with his progress and also provide an avenue for those who wish to give. Follow the link in bio.

“Stay funky, stay blessed.”

There is detailed information listed on the website about the ordeal Sinbad suffered as his family has been by his side ever since. The medical condition took place on October 25, 2020. Sinbad had suffered an ischemic stroke as a result of a blood clot that traveled from his heart to his brain. After being rushed into surgery at West Hills Medical Center, the doctors conducted a procedure called thrombectomy. This removed the clot that traveled to his brain and it helped restore normal blood flow to the brain.

Sadly, the very next day, another blood clot formed, which was half the size of the first one discovered. The same procedure was used to remove this clot and it was successful in removing it. He was then taken to another medical facility, Cedar Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles where the doctors discovered that his brain had begun to swell. This time a craniotomy was done to relieve the pressure and reduce the swelling. Other difficulties ensued and he was placed in a medically induced coma and ended up on a ventilator.

That was the beginning of several other mishaps that occurred on the way to Sinbad’s road to recovery. More details are on the site to give a complete update on what has happened to Sinbad.

The family has placed a statement the comedian said in reference to his journey back.

“Thank God for everything He’s given you, even if it’s not everything you asked for. Thank God for family and hug the ones you love while you’re still with them. We need each other to get through this journey. I can’t wait to see you all again soon.”
