In recent news, a man reportedly shares a shocking photo of what COVID-19 did to his body after just six weeks in a hospital.
Man Shares Photo Of COVID-19 Outcome After Six Weeks
Recently, Mike Schultz, a San Francisco native, woke up in the coronavirus ward of a hospital in Boston, chatting to one of his favorite nurses about how his treatment went after he got sedated and intubated.
Per Schultz, he said that he felt like only a week had gone by.
The reality, however, was far from it since the nurse confirmed that he’d actually been in the ward for six weeks. And the change his body went through is testament to that.
“I was so weak. This was one of the most frustrating parts. I couldn’t hold my cellphone; it was so heavy. I couldn’t type, because my hands shook so much,” Schultz recalled.
Weighing only a mere 140 pounds and only having his lung capacity start to come back after waking up, one wouldn’t easily believe that Schultz was well-built before he got infected with the coronavirus. In fact, before the entire incident, the 43-year-old nurse weighed an easy 190 pounds and used to work out around six to seven times a week.
Now however, Schultz is skinnier than ever, even going as far as to share an Instagram photo to show his followers how much weight he lost because of the deadly virus condition. Per Schultz, he took the photo standing up, and had already felt tired just after a couple minutes of doing it.
“I knew what I thought going in [about the coronavirus]. I didn’t think it was as serious as it was until after things started happening. I thought I was young enough for it not to affect me, and I know a lot of people think that. I wanted to show it can happen to anyone. It doesn’t matter if you’re young or old, have preexisting conditions or not. It can affect you,” he said.
Thankfully, the nurse is now slowly recovering and plans on regaining his fitness once it’s safe to do so.
