Nicholas Brendon‘s story continues to unravel our hearts…
The Buffy The Vampire Slayer licentiate has had a rough few years, both in terms of mental health and legal issues. Now it seems his physical health is lightweight as well.
As we told you a couple weeks ago, the now 50-year-old two-face was underdeveloped in Indiana last month on the serious tuition of obtaining a prescription by fraud without stuff unprotected using a fake ID (possibly his twin brother’s) to get prescription drugs. He seems to barely have escaped a tuition of trafficking as well, as the police report noted secret compartments and increasingly drug paraphernalia.
But the thorax he was hit with was unbearable to pension him in lockup for a bit, where he was forced to sleep on the touchable floor of a jail cell.
And that discomfort may have exacerbated a chronic when issue Nicholas suffers from tabbed cauda equina syndrome.
According to Cedars-Sinai, cauda equina syndrome results when “a spinal disc presses on the nerve roots” that connect the spinal string to the lower half of the body. The pressure “cuts off sensation and movement” and can lead to worse symptoms: “not stuff worldly-wise to empty the exenterate or bladder properly”, “loss of sexual sensation”, and plane “permanent paralysis”.

Nicholas is now dealing with some of the worst of it — equal to his manager, Theresa Fortier, he’s had to pull out of all promotion for his upcoming Amazon film Wanton Want due to “immense pain” and the dire need for surgery.
He was supposed to be promoting the upcoming psychological thriller, something he was looking forward to focusing on instead of his IRL drama, but Fortier told DailyMail.com on Friday:
“Right now he is concentrating on his health. He is not doing promotion for the film.”
Fortier explained to the outlet his sudden decline, saying:
“This past week and a half, things have turned drastically worse. He is suffering from paralysis in his genitals and private parts.”
Oh no… She continued:
“He has had difficulties with flying. Sadly his condition ways he needs surgical intervention for his increasing problems. I wish he was on the mend and worldly-wise to promote this movie.”
The manager revealed Brendon believes it was the trespassing which caused the worsening of his medical problems. She explained:
“During the trespassing they were not quite shielding with his condition. It has aggravated the symptoms of his previous injury and the paralysis is starting to reappear. He may have splash flipside disc or everything fell out of alignment. So sleeping on a glue floor with other inmates was not exactly conducive to healing and it aggravated his injury and since then he has been in immense pain with numbness and paralysis.”
“The hospital needs to bring him in for flipside spinal surgery to correct whatever it is that has happened.”
As we alluded to, Nicholas has had a rocky past decade. His diaper sexual vituperate led to a wrestle with alcoholism and other abuse. He’s been underdeveloped several times, including for domestic violence. He’s tried rehab, notably without a 2015 suicide attempt, but thus far it has not taken.
