Doctor Yasser Abdul Qader, who heads the medical team treating prominent Egyptian actor Ahmad Zaki, has announced that the actor is still breathing but he is suffering from a permanent coma as a result of the brain stroke. The doctor stressed that treatment at this point for the actor is hopeless and his fate lies in the hands of God.
According to the London based daily, Alsharq Al Awsat, Dr. Yasser added that the actor’s condition is very critical but is stable, in the sense that he is not experiencing any improvements or setbacks. Dr. Yasser noted that the stroke was expected due to the deterioration of Ahmad’s health and the increase of cancer tumors, and the actor was aware that he will be entering a death-defying phase, which is what actually happened.
Doctors denied that the actor’s heart has stopped beating, stressing that his heart is functioning despite the death of brain cells. Doctors have revealed that they are giving the actor medication to dissolve blood clotting. The doctors added that the brain is not functioning and the actor has been in a deep coma for the past four days and he is being given large dosage of oxygen to keep breathing.
The past few days were the most harsh on Ahmad’s son Haitham, who has not left the side of his father for one moment. Haitham’s state of mind kept getting worse especially after reading and hearing shocking rumors that his father has passed away, forcing him to stop reading newspapers of even answer his phone.
The visitors list for Ahmad has increased tremendously as other artists and fans crowded the hospital to try to see him. The excess of people forced hospital officials to prohibit anyone from entering or seeing the actor stressing that the matter has gotten out of hand.
