Doctors Still Not Able To Diagnose Kemoy Campbell’s Condition
Jamaican distance runner collapsed while participating in the men’s 3000-metre event at the Millrose Games in New York earlier this month.
However doctors have still not been able to provide a diagnosis for the athlete.
Via an Instagram post on Sunday, Campbell stated:
“After multiple vials of blood, ECHOs, EKGs, ultrasounds, MRI, CAT scan, PET scan, and heart biopsy. The weeks of testing resulted in no diagnosis for the cause of my heart stopping.
“On Monday I will be putting a ICD in my body (left side of my ribs).
He added: “This device will shock my heart back into rhythm if this is to happen again. I was told that I would have to take a few months off from running. After those months, I could start getting back at it slowly with permission from the cardiologist.”
Campbell is currently being treated at the he New York Presbyterian Columbia Medical Center in the United States.
