What is brain aneurysm? Dr. Dre reveals that he almost died in 2021
Dr. Dre recently revealed that he came very close to death after experiencing a brain aneurysm in 2021. On Monday, August 15, Dolvett Quince shared a portion of his upcoming interview with Dr. Dre for the Workout the Doubt podcast. During the meeting, the legendary manufacturer spoke about him nearly dying after suffering a brain aneurysm last January.
I’m at Cedar Sinai Hospital, and they weren’t letting anyone up, I mean, guests or family or anything, as a result of COVID, Dr. Dre said, reviewing the experience. Anyway, they let my family in. I later realized that they were beaten so they could say their last goodbyes since they thought I was not there. Dr. Dre said he had no idea how serious his condition was until he saw his family walk into his clinic’s emergency room.
What is brain aneurysm?
A brain aneurysm is a bulge or expansion in a blood vessel in the brain. An aneurysm often appears to be a berry holding tightly to a stem. A brain aneurysm can leak or stasis causing bleeding in the brain (hemorrhagic stroke). Most often, a ruptured cerebral aneurysm occurs in the space between the brain and the sparse tissues that cover it. This type of hemorrhagic stroke is known as a subarachnoid hemorrhage.
A ruptured brain aneurysm quickly becomes dangerous and requires immediate clinical treatment. Most brain aneurysms, however, do not rupture, cause medical problems, or cause side effects. Such aneurysms are often recognized during tests for different circumstances. Treatment for an unruptured brain aneurysm may sometimes be adequate and may prevent a rupture in the future.
Dr. Dre reveals that he almost died in 2021 due to a brain aneurysm
Last year, rapper and super-producer Dr. Dre made headlines after suffering a brain aneurysm. Even though he had all the makings of being healthy during his Super Bowl performance this year, it was probably never assumed that he nearly died after his health-related crisis. In an interview with Dolvett Quince for an upcoming episode of the Workout The Doubt podcast, Dr. Dre shared that his family visited him at the medical clinic, hoping it would be the last time they would see him.
I’m at Cedar Sinai Hospital and they weren’t letting anyone up, I mean guests or family or something because of COVID, he said. Be that as it may, they allowed my family to enter. I found out later, they hit them to say goodbye for the last time since they thought I had left.
Dr. Dre revealed that during his fourteen-day ICU stay, doctors constantly woke him up at the last minute to conduct tests. The tests appeared to be essentially field sobriety tests, Dr. Dre said. Touch your nose, rub your heel on your calf and all that shit. So constantly for a long time I needed to wake up and do that.
