James Krause was one of the cast members for Season 25 of The Ultimate Fighter. Upon returning home, however, he got a “nasty infection” in a cut in his leg. The situation evidently got bad enough that he had to be hospitalized to battle the infection.
Krause took to Instagram, posting the following comment, pictures, and video from his time in the hospital.
“Well… this definitely isn’t how I planned my days after being away for 6 weeks. I got a nasty infection on a cut in my leg from when I was on the show and have felt terrible ever since. Hoping to be recovered in a day or two!”
When all was said and done, Krause indicated that he spent 10 days in the hospital, had three surgical procedures, and will be on crutches and have a PICC line (which is used to intravenously provide medication) to get clear of the infection.
Out of surgery and back in my room. The infection on my muscle was worse than they anticipated so they had to do some extra cutting and added a PICC LINE but I'm glad we're finally making progress. I'll have another surgery in a few days to close it but the light is at the end of the tunnel. Big thank you to everyone who sent messages showing support!
