‘Sopranos’ Star Jamie-Lynn Sigler Reveals She Almost Died After Getting Sepsis Following Surgery

43-year-old actress Jamie-Lynn Sigler, best known for playing Meadow on The Sopranos, has a pretty successful podcast titled ‘MeSsy‘, and during a recent episode, she made a shocking admission.

She revealed that one year ago, she nearly died after getting sepsis following an undisclosed surgery in India.

I was living at an ashram in India. I had felt so awakened and connected and peaceful. Two weeks later, I had a very bad reaction to a surgery and got sepsis and was in the hospital and almost died. I’ve never told anybody this. Two weeks after a year ago, right now, I was in a hospital, literally, like, this much away from death.

Thankfully, her body managed to fight off the infection, with help from multiple doctors and lots of antibiotics, but for a couple days, it did not look good at all.

Of course, this isn’t her first health scare. In her 20s, she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, which has been impacting her life ever since. It’s daily battle.

But it was this recent near-death experience that truly changed her life…

I had never in my life been more sad, felt more low. But what I learned from India was I had an inability to escape it. I had to sit in it. I would scream in pillows. I would cry to girlfriends… I reached out. I sat by myself, I got a therapist, I did all of these things I had never really done before and went through this process that was absolutely necessary.

Scary stuff, but we’re super glad she’s in a better place now!
