Deion Sanders fought a huge battle as he was admitted for 23 days in the hospital most of which were in the ICU. In total he had 8 surgical procedures during that time. In fact it got so bad that he lost 40 pounds of weight and even needed help to go to the bathroom.

It was the pain,” Sanders said. “They cut all the nerves and sometimes that thing just throbbed. Ain’t nobody can tell me about no journey. I was fighting for life in there.”

The hardest thing of it all was to look down there and see that and understand that once upon a time you were this type of athlete and you don’t know if you’re gonna walk,” Sanders said. “Because all you feel is just pain and you just wanna get out of this hospital.”

Additionally the Jackson State Tigers coach has also said that the doctors said that there was a chance they would have to remove his entire leg and an even worse possibility of death.

They were talking about the amputation of toes,” Sanders said. “Then they were talking about the amputation of my leg from the knee down. Then, they were trying to ensure I had life.”
