The former NFL player and Jackson State University coach Deion Sanders have shared details of his recovery after undergoing surgery on a dislocated toe.
Here is what Deion Sanders said during an appearance on NPR’s “The Limits with Jay Williams” podcast:
“I was taking so many meds, Jay, that it was ridiculous. Because, you got to understand, I’ve never smoked, never drank in my life. So I’d never been high. But taking these meds, man, I see why people get addicted to that stuff, man.
“I was on so many meds because the pain was so excruciating that the detox period for me — I was sweating bullets when I got out, in the bed — sweating, sweating, sweating because I was so used to the meds at night, especially late at night. And it was crazy. But the toughest part, mentally and emotionally, was someone having to help me into bed, help me out of bed, take me to the bathroom, get me out of the bathroom.”
As you can see, Sanders is doing better and recovering.
