The story is absolutely terrifying … Dante McNulty The 40-year-old gymnast said he woke up in the middle of the night to let the dog out as he slipped and fell down the stairs.
McNulty says blood flow is blocked in his lower leg … resulting in acute ventricular syndromes, which can sometimes be so severe that limb loss can occur.
“I remember I couldn’t feel my legs,” McNulty said of the incident. “I can’t walk or move. I feel paralyzed under my knees. My cold doesn’t seem swollen. But I have a lot of blood vessels appearing under my kneecap. ”
McNulty said he could yell to Alexa for help … and he was able to get emergency medical care right away.
According to GoFundMe McNulty set up for the bodybuilder to undergo surgery right away … with the doctor cutting his calf to the bone in hopes of relieving the swelling.
“He was in a coma and had to use a ventilator along with dialysis and a blood transfusion,” McNulty’s family said in a GoFundMe statement.
Fortunately, after several more operations and days of recovery, McNulty’s family said he was recently discharged from hospital and was trying to learn how to walk again.
“It’s really unbelievable,” McNulty said of the whole incident. “Thank God my WiFi was working that day”
