Nadia Montenegro shared an update about the medical condition of John Regala on August 7.

The actor is currently suffering from ailments including liver cirrhosis.

In an Instagram post, Nadia shared that the veteran actor recently underwent arthrocentesis, a procedure which uses a needle to aspirate fluid from the right knee.


"Doctors submitted the fluid for tests to check if knee is infected or not. If test results show that his knee is not infected, John can receive steroids for joint pain," Nadia's post stated.

According to Nadia’s update, John is also currently taking antibiotics and undergoing pain management.

"Also, according to John's doctor, his liver is stable. Severe gout is also one of John's problems right now," Nadia said in the post.

The actress also shared the observations of the doctor who checked on John’s health status during the morning rounds on Friday, August 7.

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

‼️UPDATE #5 ON JOHN REGALA'S CURRENT CONDITION (as of August 7, 2020) Yesterday, John underwent arthrocentesis (used a needle to aspirate fluid from the right knee). Doctors submitted the fluid for tests to check if knee is infected or not. If test results show that his knee is not infected, John can receive steroids for joint pain. John is currently still taking antibiotics. For John's pain, he is undergoing pain management on board with anesthesiologists taking care of the pain medications that can be given to him as of the moment. When doctor made his rounds this morning, these were his observations: Awake; slurred speech (from previous stroke) Pain bilateral knee Fair appetite No fever; no cough No difficulty of breathing no chest pain No abdominal pain No jaundice (yellow coloring of the skin) Presently, we are awaiting remaining tests from the fluid taken from John's knee to determine if it is safe to administer steroids. Also, according to John's doctor, his liver is stable. Severe gout is also one of John's problems right now. Awaiting further updates and if (and when) he is scheduled for more tests. Please keep on praying for John's health and recovery. We will continue to update everyone on John's condition and hopeful improvement. We are extremely thankful to everyone -- friends and even strangers -- who reached out, sent prayers, and donated (in cash and in kind) to help John get better. John sends his love and gratitude to all of you. ❤️❤️❤️🙏🙏🙏

Nadia is one of the celebrities who came to the rescue when John made headlines after he experienced a dizzy spell on the road because of his condition. The actor has been admitted to the  National Kidney and Transplant Institute in Quezon City.

It was found out that the actor has been having difficulty eating because of the complications brought by liver cirrhosis.

Nadia and her friends launched a crowdfunding page for the actor. See here: https://gavagives.tech/campaign/please-help-john-regala.
