The serious adventure he had with his health, reaching literally one step before death, was mentioned by the well-known chef Nikos Poulmentis in an interview he gave.
He also spoke about his eldest daughter, Marianna, who participated in the Greek MasterChef, while he also mentioned his work in America, describing the reasons that do not allow him to return permanently to Greece.
The distinguished chef shocks: “I had 99% blocked central artery of the heart”
“Exactly 6 years ago I smoked like a cigarette and I go to a doctor to remove a pimple I had on my back. He tells me “you’re going to go to the hospital to do some tests, because I’m going to put you to sleep to take it out, it’s infected”, Nikos Poulmentis initially said about the serious adventure he went through with his health.
“I go, the doctor does a cardiogram to check me and says “tell me who is your closest relative now, you are dying”. I give my wife’s phone number and they were looking for a hospital to take me to. I didn’t feel anything, but I had 99% blocked central artery of the heart. They put a stent on me, the last drops passed and I saved it to the millimeter,” he continued.
“I would have died that day, in a couple of hours I would have been gone. It was luck”, concluded Nikos Poulmentis, concluding his shocking description.
