Dr. Conrad Murray says jail is killing him, sort of literally.
The man who killed Michael Jackson (unintentionally) has suffered serious injuries behind bars and he wants out, according to this phone call he made to a friend:
Murray says he was rushed to USC Medical Center this week after fearing he was suffering from blood clots in his legs. He described the experience as such:
"It progressed until the leg felt numb ... 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."
"Blood clots are relatively risky ... especially if they propagate from the legs into the lungs to cause pulmonary embolism which can result in disability or even death."
Ultimately, doctors determined there were no blood clots and returned Murray to jail.
He wasn't happy about that.
"I have had to lay in bed for most of the day because there is no way to elevate my feet," the physician laments. "One of the recommendations by the doctor is to keep my legs elevated and to increase my physical activity which is impossible in a 5x7 cell."
Dr. Conrad Murray also claims he suffered a shoulder injury and his feet are swollen. He then adds:
"I don't want to be permanently hurt by any condition in here ... because if I am, I will not let it rest."
Is that a threat?
