Amy Winehouse Has Emphysema & Lump In Breast


HAPPIER MONDAYS: Amy Winehouse & Now-Jailed Husband Blake Sharing Unidentified White Pills

ASSOCIATED PRESS: LONDON — Soul diva Amy Winehouse has damaged her lungs by smoking crack cocaine and cigarettes, her father said in an interview published Sunday. The Sunday Mirror quoted Mitch Winehouse as saying that Amy has early stage emphysema and an irregular heartbeat, and has been warned that she will have to wear an oxygen mask unless she stops smoking drugs.”The doctors have told her if she goes back to smoking drugs, it won’t just ruin her voice, it will kill her,” Mitch Winehouse was quoted as saying. “There are nodules around the chest and dark marks. She has 70 percent lung capacity.” Winehouse, 24, collapsed at her north London home Monday after signing autographs for a group of fans and was taken to a London hospital for tests. She remained there all week. MORE

DAILY MIRROR: Ex-cabbie Mitch revealed how he recognised “warning signs” that Amy would have a seizureamywineglass.jpg after noticing her eyes were squinting at a family lunch last Sunday. Then at 4pm on Monday, he rushed the troubled star to hospital in the back of his cab after she collapsed in a fit at her home in Camden, North London. She has suffered two seizures in the past year, including one last August when she was hospitalised after a huge drugs binge. “When we got to the hospital a room was ready. Several doctors came in and checked to make sure she didn’t need any emergency treatment. At the hospital we found she’d been awake for 48 hours. We can only speculate she’d been taking drugs all that time. She curled up in bed and went to sleep. In between tests, she slept for almost three days solid.”

Mitch also told of his fears as Amy underwent tests after a mystery lump was found on her chest during scans at private London hospital The Clinic. He said: “After lots of tests they found a lump in Amy’s chest. A scan has shown it’s not cancerous and there are no traces of cancer in her blood. But they might need to double check. “There is a chance she might need a biopsy. If they need to cut the lump out then that will mean a massive and painful operation and a lot of recuperation. MORE
