Bam Margera discusses his health in detail after battling for his life in December. The Jackass actor addressed his struggles in Steve-Wild O’s Ride! Podcast. Due to severe COVID, Bam spent eight days in the hospital. He experienced violent seizures that lasted for about 20 minutes. In addition to having pneumonia, he spent days on a ventilator. On the other hand, Steve-O admitted that after seeing Margera on a ventilator, he initially believed that he would lose Margera forever. Bam Margera is all good and healthy now.
“I basically was pronounced dead on Elvis’ birthday, December 8th. I did not know that I had gnarly COVID. My body was shutting down, and I went into four seizures, each one lasting 10 to 20 minutes, and on the fourth one, I bit my tongue so hard, it was nearly falling off. It got so swollen and puffy, it wouldn’t fit in my mouth, and I was drinking the infected blood, which gave me pneumonia as well, so when the shaman took me to the hospital, I went into my fifth seizure, and I couldn’t breathe without a tube down my throat,” Said Margera in the podcast.
Bam Margera Ditches Rehab and Goes Missing!
He is making headlines after allegedly ditching rehab
Bam Margera is making headlines after allegedly ditching rehab. According to a Delray Beach police report, the Jackass star went MIA from his Florida rehab facility on Monday, much to the dismay of staff. Margera’s manager told cops that Bam had expressed unhappiness with the program and treatment he was receiving, so he decided to bolt. This isn’t the first time Margera has caused trouble while in rehab – last year, he was kicked out of another facility for bleaching his hair against doctors’ orders. Here’s hoping Bam gets the help he needs this time around.

Apparently, Bam Margera is reportedly seeking help for his alcoholism. He was recently spotted at a rehab center in Los Angeles, and according to a report from TMZ, he seemed to be trying to leave the facility without authorization. The report notes Bam told the manager that instead of staying there, he’d be checking himself into a different rehab center in the area and then left the premises in a black sedan. According to the manager, Bam was there under a court order, and the staff was concerned he seemed to be leaving without authorization. However, it’s not clear if Bam actually went to the other rehab center or not. This isn’t the first time Bam has battled addiction; he’s been open about his struggles with alcohol in the past, and he even spent time in jail last year after pleading guilty to DUI charges. Here’s hoping Bam is able to get the help he needs.

Last month, Bam had a skateboarding accident that left him with a broken wrist and elbow. He blamed the facility for not setting up his physical therapy appointments, but friends and family are working on getting him back on track. Bam has been through a lot in the last year, including treatment for substance problems. Right now, he needs the support of his loved ones to help him get back on his feet. We hope that Bam will take advantage of the resources available to him and make a full recovery.
