Dr. Conrad Murray is again complaining about his prison conditions, this time claiming he needs to leave immediately because he has deadly blood clots in his legs.
TMZ has obtained a recording of a jailhouse phone call between Murray and a friend in which Murray says he was rushed to USC Medical Center earlier this week for the condition.
“It progressed until the leg felt numb … it was painful all to the top of my foot … around the medial aspect of my ankle and all the way to the mid-calf,” Murray was quoted as saying.
Murray — who was a licensed doctor before he was convicted of causing the death of Michael Jackson — explained, “Blood clots are relatively risky … especially if they propagate from the legs into the lungs to cause pulmonary embolism which can result in permanent disability or even death.”
Ultimately, doctors who are currently licensed determined there were no blood clots and returned Murray to his cell .
“I have had to lay in bed for most of the day because there is no way to elevate my feet. One of the recommendations by the doctor is to keep my legs elevated and to increase my activity which is impossible in a 5×7 cell,” Murray reportedly said on the phone.
During the call, Murray gripes that his feet have become so swollen, “I may never be able to wear a boot again.”
Murray then issues a veiled threat — “I don’t want to be permanently hurt by any condition in here … because if I am, I will not let it rest.”
