It was widely reported earlier this month that rapper Lil Boosie had been diagnosed with kidney cancer by his doctor. The cancer has attacked not only Boosie’s body, but also his pockets. The rapper was forced to pay $90,000 for surgery to remove the cancer because he did not have any medical insurance.
Boosie went under the knife on Tuesday and tells TMZ, the doctors removed half of one of his kidneys. It’s called a nephrectomy, and Boosie says it worked like a charm … docs believe they got all of the cancer.
Boosie says he’s still feeling weak 3 days after the surgery, and his wallet’s definitely feeling it too. He doesn’t have health insurance, so he had to pay $90,000 out-of-pocket!
He feels blessed to have been successful enough that he could foot the life-saving procedure. He’s going to be in a cancer rehab facility for at least 3 weeks, but overall … Boosie calls this a minor setback for a major comeback.
