Doctors thought Krazy wouldn't make it
Krazy Bone ran into lung problems in 2016 and was diagnosed with a rare condition, pulmonary sarcoidosis. In an interview with Spin Magazine, the Bone Thugs-n-Harmony artist explained how the condition dangerously caught up with him in September.
“I didn't even know how serious it was until I woke up,” he told the publication. “They informed me of everything that was going on. The doctors in the ICU, I don't know if it's what they see every day, but their outlook was grim. They were like, ‘He might not make it out of here. The lung function on the left side is completely dead. He will need a lung transplant.' This is everything they're telling my family when I'm in the process of waking up.
“When I wake up, everybody's looking grim,” he added. “They tell me this and I'm like, ‘OK.' They were gearing me up for a lung transplant, so they sent me right over to the Ronald Reagan Center because my primary doctor, when she heard them talking about a transplant, she was like, ‘Wait, let's slow down here. This is my patient. I just had a visit with him and he just had one of the best breathing tests. We need to slow this down. I don't think he needs a lung transplant.' That's why I was in the hospital for so long. They were doing a whole evaluation.”
