Dr. Conrad Murray Complains Jail is Killing HimPublished by on Thursday, October 11, 2012 at 10:00 am.
Dr. Conrad Murray thinks that jail is killing him.
In a recorded jailhouse conversation, the former doctor convicted of killing Michael Jackson told a friend that he had to be rushed to USC Medical Center earlier this week after fearing he was suffering from deadly blood clots in his legs.
“It progressed until the leg felt numb,” he complained, “… it was painful all to the top of my foot … around the medial aspect of my ankle and all the way to the mid-calf.”
After Murray was examined, the doctors determined there were no blood clots. And Murray was returned to his cell. But he insists that the pain and numbness continues.
“I have had to lay in bed for most of the day,” he said, “because there is no way to elevate my feet. One of the recommendations by the doctor is to keep my legs elevated and to increase my activity which is impossible in a 5×7 cell.”
Obviously Murray doesn’t know that a lot of institutionalized dudes get most of their time to work out and keep in shape while being locked down. Maybe if he got with that program it would help him serve his time with a little ease… But if he wants to suffer, well, that’s what jail is for.
