Nick Cordero Leg Amputation Due to COVID-19
In April 2020, Cordero tested positive for the novel coronavirus. The actor has been hospitalized with the illness for more than two weeks and Amanda previously revealed there were blood issues in one leg. On Saturday, Amanda took to her Instagram and informed well-wishers that “the right leg will be amputated today”. She said that Cordero had been treated with blood thinners to help with clotting in his leg, but his doctors had to stop the treatment because it was causing internal bleeding. “We took him off blood thinners but that again was going to cause some clotting in the right leg, so the right leg will be amputated today,” she said.

Cordero entered the intensive care unit at Cedars-Sinai Medical Cente in Los Angeles on March 31 and has been on a ventilator and unconscious after contracting COVID-19. His wife has been sending him daily videos of her and their 10-month old son, Elvis so he could see them when he woke up and urging friends and fans to join a daily sing-a-long and dancing for Nick.

Thank you to everyone who joined me in singing and dancing for @nickcordero1 today with us! I was blown away by the love and support across the world! When I got to FaceTime with him today it was the first time I’d see him since dropping him off at the ER 12 days ago. I told him he had to fight. I told him he is strong and can do this. I said, “You got a whole lot of living to do!” Then I remembered this song. The moment lifted my spirits, shifted energies and brought a new hope to this story. The doctors are still concerned about his right leg and we need him to start making small responses off sedation. These are the next two goals that need to happen. 🙏🏻 I will continue to sing, dance and play this song everyday until you are home Nick Cordero!
Amanda’s latest update comes just two days after she revealed that her husband may never walk again. She took to her Instagram story on Thursday as she said Nick had surgery to remove the ECMO machine that he was on and it went well. She explained, ‘the doctor said Nick’s heart and lungs right now they’re in the best condition that they could be. The fact that he’s off (the ECMO machine) is great.
However, the news were not great as she said; “His right leg is still an issue. He has been some blood flow issues coming down to his foot.”
In a separate post by vandypop News & Media Website, the Instagram post read, “Sad news. Broadway star Nick Cordero, 41, had to have his right leg amputated today as a result of coronavirus-related complications. 🏥 Cordero has been very sick with the coronavirus and has been in the hospital’s ICU for 18 days. During that time, he got blood clots in his leg which is a common problem for those who are in hospital beds during extended periods of time. The blood thinners, which initially helped ease some of the clotting, then started causing issues with his blood pressure and led to internal bleeding in the intestines. Cordero’s wife Amanda Kloots has been sharing updates on her Instagram account”
