There is new data on the state of Roman Kostomarov. As it became known, the amputations were more difficult than reported. At the same time, at present, the athlete’s “windpipe” was removed, the so-called tracheostomy, but the hole in the trachea was not sewn up just in case.
Roman Kostomarov is conscious. “Kostomarov really came to his senses, his wife, figure skater Oksana Domnina, is constantly next to him,” a source at the hospital said.
After regaining consciousness, Roman first ate ice cream. But the doctors had a hard time. “He exhausted everyone, figuratively speaking. All the medical staff drove up, asked him to wash his hair, and the nurse gave him ice cream,” the source quotes the mk.ru website.
He also said that Román not only had his feet amputated, but also the shins of both legs, as well as his entire right hand. His body is very weak. Kostomarov really lost more than 25 kg.
“His second arm is now turning black, the doctors are still waiting, whether to amputate it or not. Manipulations are done by hand in the form of a cleanse. Both of Kostomarov’s feet were also amputated, and then the lower part of the legs of both legs. The other hand was also amputated in its entirety,” the interlocutor specified.
Roman’s multi-organ failure persists. All the organs are exhausted and cannot function on their own.
As Lev Averbakh, CEO of a private ambulance, said, the patient’s body is fighting. “But some kind of septic shock can start again,” he was quoted as saying by Channel Five.
