Lamar Odom Released From Hospital, Transferred To Rehab Facility

Lamar Odom has been discharged from the hospital nearly three months after his near-fatal overdose. 

Odom was quietly released from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles on Wednesday. With the assistance of estranged wife Khloe Kardashian, the former NBA star was transferred to a private rehabilitation facility. He will live in the center for the foreseeable future to continue long-term care.

Odom was found unconscious at a Nevada brothel in October. After being rushed to the hospital, he suffered several strokes. Odom, who was initially unresponsive and in a coma on life support, was later moved from a Las Vegas hospital to the medical facility in Los Angeles.

Thankfully, Odom eventually regained consciousness. He did, however, have to deal with kidney failure and undrwent at least one operation. He has spent the last few months working to regain his mobility, as his speaking skills and ability to walk have been greatly impacted. It still remains to be seen how long-lasting any brain damage will be.

Kardashian called off her divorce from Odom in the wake of the health crisis, and has publicly committed to being involved in his recovery.
