Anderson Varejao

There is no such thing as a minor surgery. That is why you have to sign a bunch of papers before you go into the operating room.

Anderson Varejao had surgery on his quadriceps and it almost led to his death.

“I was having my best season, the best time of my life, and a week later I’m in the hospital and I could be dead,” Varejao said. “It’s crazy. I’m very lucky.”

Varejao had trouble sleeping and suffered back and chest pain shortly after having surgery on his quadriceps near his right knee on Jan. 10. He didn’t waste time telling the Cavaliers’ medical staff. A CT scan revealed the blood clot in his left lung, sending him back to the operating room.
