As reported by the “Bild” newspaper, the doctors diagnosed her with a thrombosis behind the eye. “A few days ago, Ireen’s eye suddenly swelled,” her husband Klaus-Jürgen Kahl tells the newspaper. “She saw everything twice, got a bad headache, I drove her to the clinic.” There the singer was examined.
Doctors had initially suspected a stroke after an MRT examination the thrombosis was then diagnosed. “An attempt is now being made to dissolve the clot with blood thinners. If that doesn’t work, Ireen will have to have an operation,” Kahl continued.
Due to the corona pandemic, the pop singer currently has to go through the treatments alone. Her husband is not allowed to visit her in the hospital. The couple said yes in 2010.
