Lyor Cohen Hospitalized For Pulmonary Embolism
300 Entertainment head Lyor Cohen is currently recovering today after suffering a pulmonary embolism.
The legendary music executive took to Snapchat this weekend to share news on his condition while wearing an in an oxygen mask.
“If it wasn’t for my son, and my best friend Norm, I would have been a goner,” said Cohen, who is seen wearing an oxygen mask, in one of his video messages.
According to Cohen, who is 56, it was his keeping in shape by exercising every day that enabled him to survive. He claims that according to his doctors if he had waited four more hours to seek medical attention he would have been a “goner.”
A pulmonary embolism is the blockage of a blood vessel in the lungs, usually by a bloodclot, that can cause death if large enough not treated immediately. It’s what killed Heavy D.
In an ironic twist, Cohen’s doctor’s first name is Khalid. “You’re not DJ Khaled are you?” asked Cohen.
Seems like Cohen is on his way to speedy recovery.
Sheesh, get well soon Lyor!
