Comedienne Joy Viado was recently admitted in Chinese General Hospital because of an infected wound on her lower right leg that started with a mosquito bite.
Her diabetes, which was diagnosed last 2000 has aggravated her medical condition which had almost resulted to Joy Viado’s leg amputation.
She and her kids have actually considered that procedure and the use of artificial leg after the surgery. But her doctors objected to the idea and gave her words of hope , as she emotionally narrated.
In an interview with ABS-CBN, Viado narrated she did not expect that her condition would worsen. She also said that she also felt depression seething in but always reminded herself of her mission in life which is to make people laugh.
Currently she is undergoing a remedy called hyperbaric sessions, which is showing good effects according to Viado. She confirms that her condition is getting better now. She further stated that she is positive that she will recover.
