For the second time after suffering mild kidney failure earlier this year, he was hospitalized last week for blood clot in the lungs.
Nick has now revealed on his Now-FM radio show, “I have been in the hospital since Friday, and actually, it’s quite serious. I didn’t even know. I was actually trying to downplay it a lot – even in my own mind – not got to the hospital because I was having a lot of pain in my back and I thought it was the typical kidney pain that I had been experiencing, but I thought it had been a little bit heightened…”
Nick confirms that he had blood clots in his lungs and an enlarged ventricle in his heart. This actually sounds very serious and fortunately since Nick it’s in such good shape that may have saved his life.
“My doctor was like, ‘Luckily, you’re in shape, because most people who get blood clots in their lungs can’t breathe and they stop breathing, like, forever.”
Wow, that just motivated me to hit the gym. Anyway, Nick is such a workaholic that he needs to slow his roll. Technically, he can’t be a TV host, actor, radio DJ, regular DJ, music manager, father, husband or whatever, basically he simply needs to slow down.
“My doctor was saying that my work is going to kill me – and he’s not joking.” Yikes!
Nick I hope you get well soon and listen to the doctor.
