Some good news out of Poland today as Nergel, the iconic Behemoth frontman, was released from the hospital after he underwent a bone marrow transplant. Currently Nergal, given name: Adam Darski, is resting at his parents house where he’s under a sort of quarantine until the risk of viral infections passes.
For those who didn’t know or have forgot, Nergal was diagnosed with leukemia last year and was in desperate need of a marrow transplant. Though quite rare, the doctors were able to a near perfect match for Darski. In a recent online statement Darski stated the search for a suitable marrow donor “would have been difficult to achieve if it wasn’t for the support of so many people…
The concerts for charity have been organized all over the world and people of show business, bands and, most of all, the fans got deeply involved. You are beyond great! One of you made my transplant possible, but remember, your attitude may save many others in need.”
Things are certainly looking up now that Darski is out of the hospital but it still can take as many as six months before someone who’s undergone a transplant can recover and return to normal activities and up to a year for the marrow to start functioning properly, even if no complications arise.
Our thoughts are with you Nergal, best of luck!
