Both feet were amputated to the Russian Olympic champion in figure skating: it all started with pneumonia
Doctors had to amputate both feet of Russian figure skater Roman Kostomarov to save his life. It is possible that the Russian will also lose both hands, reports "Newspaper".
Roman Kostomarov, 2006 Olympic figure skating champion, is going through a dramatic period.
The first reports of the deterioration of the health of Roman Kostomarov appeared in early January, reports WorldToday. On January 10, he was hospitalized with pneumonia. The fact that he was transferred to intensive care was reported by Ilya Averbukh, a 2002 Olympic medalist from Salt Lake City, a close friend of Kostomarov.

Initially, it was reported that Kostomarov's condition was so severe that it was decided to put him into a pharmacological coma. He was later connected to a ventilator. This was until January 24, when doctors diagnosed sepsis and circulatory problems.
The cells in Kostomarov's body died, tissue necrosis occurred. The fight for his life began. At some point, doctors began to consider the possibility of amputating the toes, but the necrosis spread higher, and apparently the doctors had no choice but to amputate both feet. Information about surgery varies. So, the Telegram channel "112" claims that the athlete lost his foot on his left leg, and on his right leg, a whole ankle was amputated.
The operation gave a clear improvement in the health of the former Olympic champion, but the threat to life still remains. To save the athlete's life, doctors may also have to amputate both of the former skater's hands. Everything will depend on how Kostomarov's state of health will change in the coming days.
