Oh, poor chap! "Treated with ice-hole therapy"...?! I hope he pulls through.
I keep wondering if this is some sort of cryo therapy used to slow body functions.

They meant swimming in ice holes. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Winter_swimming#Eastern_Europe_and_Russia

There is no confirmation of this information from a reliable source. His relatives almost immediately denied that he did it.

lung deseases are terrible as are all bad conditions but I have two chronic ones and not being able to breath is frightening enough without the terror of being put on a ventilator......knowing if they put you out, you may never wake up. Being 45 in great physical condition is no gurarantee of life..... :pray: :pray: :pray: Have good thoughts

ECMO is an indication of the critical nature of the condition, but it's also his best chance. Fingers crossed.

The 2006 Olympic champion in ice dancing Roman Kostomarov had both feet amputated, TASS reports.

Kostomarov has been in intensive care since January 10 due to pneumonia.

The ex-skater was connected to an ECMO (extracorporeal membrane oxygenation) machine for more than five days, which caused damage to small vessels and tissue necrosis.

“Unfortunately, both feet had to be amputated. Roman in mind. The general condition is improving. But he continues to be in intensive care under the close supervision of doctors, ”a source from the agency said.

I know TASS is a credible news source but Kostomarov's mother said she was unaware, so hopefully this is some bad information that he has had this happen.

Yes, Tass said that both feet, Ria News that only one foot. Roman's mother said that she knows nothing.
The truth is somethere in between.

I would hope, in any case but especially in this situation, that the person's mother would know this information before the press. Otherwise what an awful way to find out your child (regardless of age) has had this kind of life altering injury/surgery.

They write Oksana says only Roman will tell everything, when he gets better, if he sees fit to tell those things. And in the same articles journalists continue telling what they were telling.
