Broadway Star Nick Cordero Has Leg Amputated Due To Coronavirus Complications
The 41-year-old actor, who has starred in the musicals Rock Of Ages and Waitress, was admitted to hospital at the end of March after initially being diagnosed with pneumonia before testing positive for Covid-19.
His wife, Amanda Kloots, confirmed he had undergone surgery to remove his right leg after he began to experience complications due to blood clots in the leg, meaning blood would not reach his toes. The blood thinners he was being treated with began to affect his blood pressure and cause internal bleeding in his intestines whilst on life support.
The Actor remains unconscious and is on a ventilator at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre in Los Angeles.
His wife updated fans at the weekend in an Instagram post.
“He made it through the surgery which is really big, because obviously his body’s pretty weak,” she wrote.
“They’re taking him back to the room to recover and rest, so hopefully he’ll just kind of relax and rest.” View this post on InstagramA post shared by AK! ⭐️ (@amandakloots) on Apr 17, 2020 at 1:45pm PDTIn another post, Amanda wrote: “I just wish I could see him. Hold his hand. Touch his face. I do believe this would help him WAKE UP!”
Days before the surgery Amanda revealed that doctors didn’t know if her husband would walk again.
“The doctor said for Nick’s heart and lungs right now they’re in the best condition that they could be,” she said.
“The fact that he’s off [the ECMO machine] is great. We don’t know if he’ll be able to walk again. We don’t know if he can walk again — what that’ll look like.  
“I think that there will definitely be a lot of rehab and definitely physio in order for that leg to get working again.”
A group of the couple’s Friends have launched a fundraising page to raise cash to help pay for the actor’s hospital bills and to make the family home wheelchair-accessible.
