There was news about the hospitalization of the athlete and politician Nikolai Valuev. Now he is in one of the clinics of the capital.
According to a source, yesterday Valuev complained of pain in his leg. The doctor who arrived at his home insisted on hospitalization.
Later, his assistant spoke about the current state of 49-year-old Nikolai in a conversation with Shot, noting that everything is in order with the politician.
“Nikolai Sergeevich jumps, dances. Late yesterday I was in the State Duma. No one broke his legs and no one put him in the hospital. He is alive, well, smiling and walking on two legs. Now he is at home“, – said the representative of the State Duma deputy “112”.
Recall that a few years ago, Valuev, whose height, according to official figures, reaches 2.13 meters, spoke frankly about his illness.
The athlete admitted that his abnormal physique is the result of a malfunction of the pituitary gland.
“Let’s just say that the pituitary gland has a small nut-like tumor, benign. Its evil is that it puts pressure on the pituitary gland and growth hormone is produced. As a result, a person grows out of proportion. There may be thick fingers, too big a head. Subsequently, the problem can lead to death. Well, maybe not in all cases, but for early scrapping for sure. That is, the kidneys fail, depressurization of the heart valves occurs. When I found out about this, I decided to do the surgery. As a result, there were several”, – he said in the program “The Fate of a Man” with Boris Korchevnikov.
For the sake of his own health, Nikolai decided to end his boxing career.
“I realized what a risk it was only when the doctors told me everything. When I got there, they did the operation. At that time I already had a family, two children. And before that, I didn’t know anything, I just lived with it”, — shared Valuev.
