Kuda Musasiwa, known on social media as the Begotten Sun has spoken on his near-death experience with the coronavirus. Kuda Musasiwa who is Fadzayi Mahere’s former campaign manager says he experienced some memory loss among other things. Below is his Twitter thread;
When you come off the ventilator after a near-death experience with Covid some serious issues then arise:1) chunks of memories are temporarily lost. (Kids names. Experiences. Where you live)2) your muscles wasted away. I was under for 2 weeks. I left hospital unable to walk3) the indignity of being unable to use the toilet or cleaning oneself.4) your brain is totally disconnected from your body. Eg: I often feel like I can lift my baby daughter but I can barely lift 5kgs. She 25kgs.5) I came out on over 20 tablets and now have diabetes (The diabetes brought on coz of an anti-auto-immune steroid called Dexthamethazone that basically stops your body immune system from turning on your lungs.)6) my throat has not recovered from ventilator. I can barely talk and when I do it’s painful beyond measure.7) your brain can make up entire narratives that didn’t happen when you where under but you feel they are really real.8) I’m grateful to be alive. Many many didn’t make it. It’s a very very slow process of getting better. Daily Physiotherapy, working through memories. Pain.Thank you for all your prayers, thoughts and kind words here on Twitter. Even those who dm’Ed me saying “hope you die”. I appreciate you too. I’ll be absolutely back. Not sure how long. But I know it won’t be quick or easy. God bless everyone.(bonus) So fellas. For 2 weeks I was unconscious and my wife had my phone all to herself. Only got it back after I left ICU for the last weeks I’m hospital. I’m lucky I have no stories. Don’t get Covid. mask up, 2 meters apart. Sanitize. Don’t get it. Trust me! It’s BAD !!!
