Angela Magana Wakes Up From Coma
Former UFC fighter Angela Magana, has woken from her coma. Her coach Gabriel Lamastus, sent the following text to MMA Junkie in the last few hours.
“Angela is responding to the treatment and is waking up!!! We are over joyed (sic). She has been in and out of it. This started happening this morning.”
Lamastus also said that Magana has been able to talk as well.
Megana had been in a coma two days, following complications from anesthesia, during emergency surgery at University Hospital in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
Her team posted the following on Twitter. “NOTE: Angela is awake very drowsy making jokes like herself. Shes made a couple videos when she is more coherent she can post.She wants to thank everyone who has wished her well.”
After suffering with back pain, an MRI revealed Magana had a herniated disc. After the pain continued to intensify over a week, Magana had a nerve block done on Monday but didn’t respond well to it. As a result, Magana had emergency surgery on Tuesday, from which she didn’t wake up from until Thursday.
The 35 year old was due to fight Kyra Batara at Combate 35: Reinas, on April 26th in Los Angeles, California.
