Carly Waddell Shares Health Update After Emergency Hospital Visit
Carly Waddell took to social media this week to share an update about her health following an emergency visit to the hospital on June 14.
“Hello, everybody, I’m alive,” the Bachelor Nation star began in a video posted via Instagram on Sunday. “It was dicey there for a little bit. I joke, but it was.”
In the 15-minute clip, Carly explained how she found herself seeking medical attention. “I feel like I’ve told this story to my family, like, a million times already, but I know that you guys were wondering what happened to me on Monday,” she continued, revealing that she started having “really bad intestinal cramps.”
Carly said that she initially thought she ate something bad and figured her symptoms would pass. However, her pain only intensified after boarding a flight.
“I couldn’t breathe anymore,” the franchise alum recounting, explaining that the cramps almost felt worse than the contractions she experienced during labor. “Then I got super, super hot and super, super nauseous, and I stopped being able to see and I stopped being able to hear.”
The mom of two — who shares daughter Bella, 3, and son Charlie, 19 months, with estranged husband Evan Bass — asked permission to exit the flight while still on the ground. But when she tried standing up, she “passed out” and the fire department arrived to treat her.
“I can’t even explain to you how sick I felt,” Carly said. “Everything was hurting.”
Ultimately, paramedics urged Carly to go to the hospital, where her symptoms — which included low blood pressure and a “super high” white blood cell count — worsened.
“I probably threw up 20 times,” the singer said. “I was so dehydrated somehow that they couldn’t … they stuck me, I don’t know, 200 times — probably at least 20. … They couldn’t get blood out for forever.”
Carly said that doctors told her she “probably [had] a virus or bacteria that just got me and got me really good.”
The Nashville resident added, “I don’t really have any answers. I just was, like, really down for the count. The only thing that really helped was fluid and time.”
