Bachelor In Paradise: Ayala Shares His Journey To Recovery
Cam Ayala has been a fan favorite since his appearance on The Bachelorette and then later on Bachelor In Paradise. He recently got his right leg amputated after battling lymphoedema for a long time. Cam is now learning to walk again and has a positive outlook on the whole thing. Besides, he posted a video of himself walking with the help of a walker on his Instagram. Ayala seems to be having a smooth recovery. Moreover, he is surrounded by friends and family who help and support him. According to the Maybe God podcast, he is filming his whole experience for a documentary.
Cam first publicly announced his diagnosis in 2018 while on The Bachelorette. The star has known about it since 2002 but never told anyone. He didn’t want people to feel sorry for him, and he wanted to keep his diagnosis private. Ayala has undergone 16 surgeries in the past 7 years. Tragically, amputation was the last solution. Well, doctors had saved his leg from amputation back in 2016 once, but it was necessary this time.
Moreover, Cam has been very positive about the whole thing. He had crippling anxiety and feared back in 2016 when he heard about amputation. However, he has come to terms with it. Further, the reality star looks at it like a second chance, a rebirth. He says he will have his first walk again, his first jog, and so many more ‘firsts’. The star will also finally be without pain. His condition had led to a blood clot after one of his operations, which he described as one of the worst physical pains. Fans are happy to see him have such a positive outlook.
Bachelor In Paradise: Cam’s Struggle With Lymphedema
Lymphedema is a condition where tissues swell up due to fluid build-up. Normally, the fluid would be drained out through the body’s lymphatic system. This disorder caused a lot of problems in Ayala’s right leg and required him to get 16 surgeries. Moreover, doctors said that the Bachelor In Paradise wouldn’t be able to play competitive sports or do strenuous physical activity throughout his life. Cam has come a long way since then. He has a lot of support from his friends, family, and fans.
He plans to make a documentary about his experience after the amputation. Further, this would be great and very inspiring for viewers. People who have been struggling with the disease will also get some support and might be motivated. Fans are very happy with Cam’s decision to document his journey.
