Lauren Wasser loses 2nd leg to TSS.


Model Laren Wasser is suffering from Toxic Shock Syndrome. She was first detected with TSS in the year 2012 when she lost her Right leg. Nearly 6 years later the Toxic Shock Syndrome has even claimed her left leg as she had to get it amputated.

Lauren Wasser is currently in hospital after undergoing the surgery. She had lost the toes and heels of her left leg and was going through daily excruciating pain. It was then she decided to get her left leg Amputed. She told her fans that the surgery is inevitable and that she is very hopeful from the surgery. She wrote on Instagram earlier   this month That life is going to be very different then it is now and in great spirits she is ready to face the new challenge.

After the surgery, Lauren got a surprise visit by the Ämy Purdy, a double amputee and Paralympian. Ämy Purdy kept on inspiring Lauren to keep her head up and face the challenge. Lauren thanked her from stopping by and inspiring her. She said :

“Thank you so much for stopping by it really meant the world, Thank you for showing me that life is only going to get better and I have so much life to live.”

What is TSS?

Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS) is a very rare and a life threatening complication of certain bacterial infection. Lauren had contracted TSS after she used a Tampon on her period. She fell severely ill, suffered a massive heart attack and put on life support and all this when she was in her 20’s. The bacteria was spreading which led the doctors to ampute her right leg and the foot of her left leg.

Lauren said that it was a difficult decision but that was the only way for her freedom. Her doctor Sherry Ross confirmed the Sameep saying:

“The aggressive bacteria associated with TSS is very difficult to treat, so I suspect it was best to remove abnormal tissue in her left leg to stop it from spreading throughout her body.”

We bless Lauren with fighting energies and wish her a speedy and pain free recovery.
