TMZ is reporting that Lil Wayne may be on his deathbed after suffering from seizures for the past 2 days.
Not an expert, but my expert medical opinion is that seizures rarely kill people. Based on his background, and his love for codeine infused purple drank, I'd say that it was just some sort of withdrawal symptom. Likely completely overblown by TMZ.
Status epilepticus seizures can kill someone. There's also the danger of aspiration while they're postictal.
Yah, that's all true. Actually I think a lot of patients end up in hospital not because of the seizure itself, but because they fall and hit their head as a result. I've just seen quite a few people in the ER post seizure, who walk out the door fine; not saying it can't kill.
Regardless, I'm betting TMZ just heard some doctors talking and decided it was super serious.
