Al Roker Bled Due To Perforation In The Small Intestine

Al detailed how the blood clots scared him. Upon learning of his diagnosis, he immediately admitted himself to the Weill Cornell Medical Center located in New York City on November 11, 2022. As doctors attempted to treat the blood clots with anticoagulants, they discovered that he was actually bleeding internally. Although he was deemed clinically stable and sent home for Thanksgiving, he was taken back to the hospital again the very next day.

He complained of dizziness and showed fresh new signs of bleeding. After countless CT scans, tests, and MRIs, doctors couldn’t tap into the cause of the internal bleeding. His medical team decided to perform surgery to find out the definitive cause of the bleeding. And, as it turned out, the bleeding was due to a perforation in the duodenum in the first part of the small intestine.
