Health and weight loss influencer Lexi Reed – who is known to have lost 300 pounds naturally – has gone back to hospital after previously going through a coma and surviving kidney failure.
The 31-year-old checked in after leg and stomach pain.
She lamented her health problems Instagram stories Earlier this week and revealed to her followers that she was back in a hospital bed.
“I didn’t want to spend my Monday like this 😭,” Reed shared alongside a photo of the entrance to her hospital’s emergency room. “I’ve had pain with my legs and stomach for the last two weeks and it’s not getting better, so here we are 😫.”
A little later, the fitness guru shared another update with her husband Danny Reed alongside her.
“Unfortunately we’re going back here,” she said. “I’ll get some answers. Basically I have really hard knots in my stomach that have gotten worse. My legs are really heavy and they hurt a lot. And I’ve had a temp of over 41 since Thursday, which we’ve been trying to keep down with acetaminophen [Tylenol].”
Reed noted that she had trouble walking on her own, and that her leg problems had “just gotten worse” over the past two weeks.
The Indiana Native woman made her first trip to the emergency room in January after being unable to keep food in her system for several days. Her organs began to fail and she was placed on a ventilator and placed in a medically induced coma.
She stayed at her medical center for almost a month and was eventually able to return home. However, she required kidney dialysis three times a week.
At the time of her release, Reed asked fans to donate to her GoFundMe site to cover their medical bills. Her goal was $200,000. She wrote alongside the link on social media, “Love is all I can feel right now and I can’t help but cry.”
“Between four family members who helped me even get in the car and the house with stairs, lifted me and my chair, the family brought medical supplies and visited them in the hospital and everyone here because they couldn’t. I am blessed,” Reed wrote at the time.
On March 21, Reed excitedly revealed that she was off dialysis and was informed by her doctors that her kidneys were improving.
But the next month, she ended up back in the hospital for the other physical pains plaguing her. “We’re just ready for some answers,” she added on her Instagram Stories.
She continued, “Ready for this to all be over. Ready to be healthy and in the gym… I just haven’t said much for the last two weeks hoping I’d get better and here we are. So positive prayers, thank you.”
“So ready to just feel like myself again,” Reed continued. “It was just one thing at a time, but I’m still trying to smile.”
