Joan Rivers Being Brought Out of Medically-Induced Coma



Chicago White Sox v Boston Red SoxPopular actress/comedian, and co-host of E! Fashion Police, Joan Rivers, is being brought out of medically-induced coma.

As you will recall, coma had to be induced because she was in critical condition after she stopped breathing during a vocal chord surgery.

She is currently being brought out of coma, after she spent the weekend on life support OK! reports.

As soon as the process is completed, doctors will review the severity of brain damage. Already, there are speculations that Joan could either end up confined to a wheelchair for the rest of her life, or remain in a vegetative state.

Joan’s family is considering suing the hospital that performed the throat surgery.

“The night before, she was performing and now she is on life support. An 81-year-old should not have that procedure as an outpatient. Very ill-advised, said a source.

    Oh thank God….buh been confirmed to a wheel chair or vegetative state? So sad. And for the family suing the hospital how is that their fault? I know before you go for any kind of surgery abroad u kinda check them out(Like the Doctors,what they have performed and all that)and for who Joan Rivers is am sure she did that too. Let her just rest abeg.. Buh good she is ok though.

    I personally think Joan Rivers will prefer death to ‘life as a vegetable’ she is too lively to be a vegetable, let’s just hope for a miracle.

    Suing the hospital will not make any difference, 1. i believe she consulted the doctor for her chances of survive and she was told. 2. before any surgery or operation is carried out ,there must be a witness who signs an undertaking or whatever is called in medical terms. 3. they said is a routine surgery,therefor,she should have known the risk involve.
    if the family sues, they have a lot of money to throw around

      Don’t worry they are not idiots like you that always throw your hands up in the air for everything. Next time the hospital and doctors will think twice before telling an 81 year old to get that kind of surgery done without thoroughly making sure their body can handle. If they don’t sue, we won’t know. That is why our useless Nigerian medical system is the way it is, no accountability.

      @ thinkabourit, you don’t have to stoop to name calling. She does have a point besides Joan doesn’t seem like one to take no for an answer, she would have gotten it done else where she put her life on the line so its on her. Why didn’t her family dissuade her from it?? They should pack one side abeg..When stellaobasanjo went for tummy tuck I bet she was advised against it. Its no rocket science @ a certain age surgery is no good for you.

    Sue the hospital? Was the operation carried out without her consent? Was it her 1st time. Eje gba kamu. It’s time for people to start making a joke out of her situation. Sorry to say but it’s the hard truth.

    Hmmmmm…..she sure did step on a lot of toes. I hope she survives thi. Maybe the near death experience will make her nicer and calmer and also griddle her tongue.

    For every surgery you are told that one of the possible outcomes could be death. Why did she go to a small clinic for surgery if it was minor? It was obviously something cosmetic that’s why she didn’t go to a proper hospital. 81 years is a long time, she has tried
