“Jeopardy!" Host On Medical Leave After Brain Surgery For Blood Clots - blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On Thursday, “Jeopardy!" production team announced that its longtime host, AlexTrebek will be taking a medical leave to recover from blood clots on his brain. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to CNN, Trebek was diagnosed with a condition that stemmed from a bad fall that occurred two months prior. At the time, he underwent surgery and has since been recovering. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “After two days in the hospital, I came home to start recovery," Trebek said in a video. "The prognosis is excellent, and I expect to be back in the studio taping more 'Jeopardy!' programs very, very soon!” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Although Trebek is recovering well, experts say a subdural hematoma is “among the deadliest head injuries of all time.” With the blood clot resting on the brain, underneath the outer surface, it could fill the brain and become fatal. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, Trebek is “expected to make a full and complete recovery," the game show site revealed, adding that the show tapes months in advance so the broadcast schedule will not be affected.
