Charli Baltimore Stricken With Rare Leg Infection Following Routine Surgery For A Broken Leg

The rapper chronicled her shocking journey on social media.

Back in August, rapper Charli Baltimore underwent routine surgery to repair a broken leg she’d sustained.

While the rapper appeared to be on the road to recovery, she soon learned that a post-surgery infection ate through her incision and her skin down to the point where her bone was exposed.

The rapstress has since taken to social media to update fans on her condition shockingly revealing the fact that she could’ve lost her leg if doctors hadn’t caught the infection quickly enough.

My current situation ...having to have IV antibiotics at home thru a special picc IV in my arm that connects into my chest and nurses coming to my house everyday after just spending 22 days in the hospital...undergoing 4 additional surgeries back to back and a blood transfusion after getting a super rare bone infection, that according to statistics only 2 out of 10,000 people that have had surgery on a broken bone contract....The infection actually ate thru my incisions down to the bone till it was visable!!!Straight out of a horror movie !!!my post is not for sympathy but only to say I could of lost my leg or possibly my life ..and it’s wild that during those 22 days in the hospital ..people I met maybe once or twice were more worried and checkin on me than some people I’ve helped or known all of my life ...of course my day 1’s were there but it’s funny how people disappear when you’re in potentially the worst situation of your life.So Thank u to everyone that showed me they cared and also thank u to everyone that I would have expected to care but didn’t cause you taught me a valuable lesson.....people’s need of u and love for you can change depending on the circumstances and The real ones will show u what u truly mean to them when ur at your most vulnerable so keep your circle small and tight.... S/o to all my nurses and asst.nurses at Kennedy hospital ....all u guys were the best and kept my spirits up😘😘😘 of course the docs too but I was in there so damn long I got mega cool with all my nurses lol

Thankfully, things are looking up for the “Down 4 U” rapper. After 22 days, four back-to-back surgeries and a blood transfusion she’s been released from the hospital and back on the road to recovery.
