Our favorite Ozzy guitarist Zakk Wylde has been diagnosed with a rare, genetic blood disorder.
Admitted to hospital on 19th August after Zakk felt a severe pain in his calf muscle, the guitarist was diagnosed with having blood clots in his leg and in his lungs after a CT scan. Blood clots of this nature can migrate through the circulatory system and be life-threatening.
According to Barbaranne Wylde who posted this on Black Label Society's MySpace page dated 10th September,
"Zakk is still on this rollercoaster. One day blood thinners too high...next day they don't even register in his blood. We have an appointment with a hemotologist on Friday. He does have a rare, genetic clotting disorder."
Zakk has requested that his fans tweet him. His twitter page is here:
Sending Light and Prayers your way, Zakk. Get well.
