NFL Hall of Famer Deion Sanders, who is now the head coach of the Colorado Buffaloes, is in a very bad health situation. Sanders had surgery in June to take off two toes on his left foot. This was done because blood clots had formed in them. He may have to have his leg cut off if the blood clots get worse.
Sanders has been open about his health problems, and he has used his position to talk about how dangerous blood clots can be. He has also been praised for having a good attitude and working hard to solve this problem. Will Deion Sanders’s leg fall off? Just wait and see. But there is one thing that is certain: this is a story worth following.
Why Deion Sanders Has Foot Surgery?
Deion Sanders, NFL Hall of Famer and football coach at the University of Colorado has announced his intention to have surgery to increase blood flow to his left foot and prevent the need for amputation. Sanders, who has lost feeling in the bottom of his foot due to poor circulation, has already lost two toes.
According to his medical staff, an ultrasound scan showed that formerly open arteries had closed. In a meeting for “Thee Pregame Show” that was later uploaded to YouTube, Sanders’ options were addressed, and a doctor warned that he might lose his foot.
Sanders, in a video posted on YouTube on Thursday, thanked his supporters for their care and love and said that his foot would be saved through surgery.
Sanders remarked, “I have two clots… one in my right leg and another in my left leg, which is my thighs.” “OK, so now I’m having a procedure tomorrow to try to get those clots so now I can have proper blood flow to the leg and they can fix the toes.”
Sanders explained that he has hammer toes, a malformation that causes the middle joints of the toes to bend and that physicians want to operate on him but can’t because of a lack of blood supply.
“There is no talk of amputation,” Sanders said Thursday. “There’s no talk of any of that whatsoever. The doctor was just telling me worse come to worst, this was going to happen. But I believe in staying right so we never have to take that left.”
