Terry Dubrow’s blood clot almost took his life, but his wife saved him.
Terry Dubrow is known for his expertise in plastic surgery, but he recently found himself on the other side of the operating table. The star of TLC’s ‘Botched’ suffered a near-death experience involving a blood clot that traveled to his brain, and now he’s speaking out to raise awareness.
The incident occurred while Dubrow was out to dinner with his wife, Heather, and their son. Initially, he brushed off the temporary slurring of his words as no big deal. But Heather, who noticed the symptoms, insisted that he seek medical attention. That decision likely saved his life.
Doctors discovered that a blood clot had passed through a hole in Dubrow’s heart and traveled to his brain, causing a transient ischemic attack (TIA). Fortunately, the Botched star was able to receive the necessary medical attention in time to avoid a more serious stroke.
Now, Dubrow is using his experience to spread awareness about the dangers of blood clots and the importance of understanding warning signs. He emphasizes the need to get to the hospital quickly if you believe you or someone around you is experiencing a stroke. He also recommends frequent movement during long trips to prevent clots.
Dubrow’s health scare is a reminder that anyone can be at risk, regardless of age or physical fitness. By sharing his story, he hopes to encourage others to take their health seriously and stay vigilant for warning signs.
