A unvaccinated Mississippi man has a warning for others after he contracted COVID-19 and ended up losing a leg
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.”
“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
