Lamar Odom is still on the path to recovery after being found unconscious in a Nevada brothel – and it looks like it’s a long, long road ahead for the NBA star. In fact, sources close to the athlete say that he may never be the same person he once was.
An insider revealed, “Lamar has made some progress, but his cognitive impairment is making life very challenging.”
The insider said that Lamar isn’t able to walk by himself at this time and also struggles with verbal communication. The source said that Lamar will need a lot of help in his everyday life. The insider said, “Lamar won’t likely leave the hospital for a long time. And when he does, he will need full time care. He can’t take care of himself.”
Lamar is said to be “a fighter who works hard every day” and is grateful for the support of his estranged wife Khloe Kardashian. The source said, “With Khloe in his life, Lamar is very lucky. She has been amazing.”
The insider added, “Lamar has serious long-term and lasting issues. His life will never be the same as it once was.”
