Actor Kevin Sorbo

Kevin Sorbo, star of the late syndicated television series Hercules: The Legendary Journeys and Andromeda, revealed in a recent interview with Neurology Now that during his time on Hercules the actor suffered no less than three strokes. The first stroke occurred in 1997 when the 38-year-old Sorbo was promoting the film Kull the Conqueror. Sorbo recalls, “I had several doctors on my publicity tour check me out, but they didn’t believe it was anything serious. I even had what seemed like a rational explanation, having recently injured my ulnar nerve””the funny bone.”

After two more occasions when he experienced shoulder pain, dizziness, and slurred speech Sorbo underwent a surgical procedure where an angiogram tube was used to insert platinum coils around an aneurysm in an artery near his left shoulder that had caused a severe disruption of blood flow to his lower arm. It was only after the surgery when Sorbo learned that he had suffered three strokes.

The actor discusses this health problem he had kept a secret for many years in his new book True Strength: My Journey from Hercules to Mere Mortal and How Nearly Dying Saved My Life. You can read more of Sorbo’s interview with Neurology Now here.

True Strength will be released on October 11, 2011.
