Quando si tratta di problemi di salute, Nicholas Brendon, star di “Buffy l’ammazzavampiri”, sembra non riuscire a prendersi una pausa. Nel febbraio 2021, l’attore ha subito un intervento chirurgico alla colonna vertebrale dopo un incidente sul ghiaccio, secondo Us Weekly. In un post su Instagram, ha scritto: “Con una condizione rara e un errore una settimana fa, tra un’ora mi sottoporrò a un intervento chirurgico alla colonna vertebrale”.
Nicholas Brendon was rushed to the emergency room
Nicholas Brendon's sister has revealed details about the alarming health issues that recently sent her brother to the hospital. On August 16, she posted a series of Instagram photos of Brendon, including him on a stretcher in an ambulance. She captioned the pictures, "Nicky is doing fine now but he had to be rushed to emergency about two weeks ago because of a cardiac incident (tachycardia/arrhythmia). Some of you might remember he had a similar incident after his second spinal surgery last year (for Cauda Equina) but this time." According to WebMD, cauda equina syndrome, which requires emergency surgery, affects the spinal nerve roots and can lead to paralysis.
The unfortunate news was also shared on Brendon's Twitter account. In both social media posts, his sister mentioned Brendon's focus on self-care and medical treatment. Fans jumped in with support and positive thoughts for the actor. One "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" fan account commented, "We love you Nicky, you are our loved Xander forever, God bless you." Another person wrote, "You are the strength of Buffy...we love you so much" with an accompanying Xander GIF. We wish Brendon a speedy and healthy recovery.
