LONDON, ENGLAND – An Australian actress who lives in London fought for her life after a stroke caused by the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine. Melle Stewart got the shot on May 24th. Two weeks later, she woke up with a strange feeling on the right side of her body. She collapsed and was rushed to the hospital. The actress ended up in ICU, where she was diagnosed with Thrombocytopenic Thrombosis. Her husband and fellow actor, Ben Lewis, recently decided to break his silence on his wife’s ordeal.
Melle spent three weeks in an induced coma on a ventilator after she suffered a severe stroke, caused by two large clots in the main veins of her brain. After spending almost five weeks fighting for life in ICU, she was transferred to an Acute Stroke Unit where she started rehabilitation, before being moved to a specialized London hospital on September 8th.
The ‘fit and healthy’ professional actress who had never been in hospital before is now relearning how to talk, walk, and move her right arm and hand, and will remain in the hospital into 2022 as she learns to adjust to her new life. She still takes anti-clotting and anti-seizure medication and will require further surgery to have a titanium plate fitted in her skull to replace the portion removed during a previous operation.
You can support Ms. Stewart on GoFundMe as she will need a series of ongoing rehabilitation therapy including physio, occupational, speech, and psychological therapy.Please consider supporting by sharing or making a donation.
