Unvaccinated man thought he was ‘in a low-risk situation’ – then he lost his leg to COVID-19

Anti-vaxx amputations, the new 'Vietnam'


An unvaccinated Mississippi man is warning others after he contracted COVID-19 and ended up losing a leg — an event that turned him from vaccine skeptic to vaccine believer, WVUE reports.

“I was unvaccinated,” said Bryan Thompson, 43, who added that he was otherwise healthy. “I myself was a little skeptical and I felt it got rushed. I wanted to just make sure it was safe. We were in a low-risk situation. It wasn’t like I was a front-line worker somewhere seeing hundreds of people a day. So I figured if anyone can take a little bit of a risk it could be us because of our situation.”

“My blood pressure was 71/40, and my oxygen was in the very low 80s. I mean, I was on my way out,” he said. “It probably wouldn’t have been much longer and I would have died.”

But after being discharged from the hospital, Thompson soon realized that his ordeal wasn’t over.

“During the night, [the] pain increased to a level I have never experienced,” he said. “[The] Worst pain I have ever felt in my life. My foot just… I can’t explain it. Like, screaming-out kind of pain.”

His wife Audrey rushed him to the hospital, where doctors found several blood clots in his leg.

“It eventually got to the point where there was just no hope to save anything,” said Bryan, who pointed out that as a result, his leg had to be amputated just below the knee.  read more..
