Broadway star Nick Cordero had his leg amputated due to coronavirus complications

Broadway star, Nick Cordero, 41, is recovering after having his right leg amputated following complications with Coronavirus,

The Tony Award-nominated star   was initially diagnosed with pneumonia, before testing positive  coronavirus for more than two weeks.

His wife, Amanda Kloots, has kept fans informed by sharing updates on his health on her Instagram.

Amanda Kloots on Instagram wrote late Saturday that Cordero “made it out of surgery alive and is headed to his room to rest and recover.”

Cordero had been treated with blood thinners to help with clotting in his leg, but his doctors had to stop the treatment because it was causing internal bleeding.

“We took him off blood thinners but that again was going to cause some clotting in the right leg, so the right leg will be amputated today,” she said earlier Saturday.

Cordero entered the intensive care unit at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles on March 31 and has been on a ventilator and unconscious after contracting COVID-19.
