Conservative comedian Steven Crowder shocked and Dismayed fans on Tuesday night when he posted a disconcerting photo and message from a hospital bed revealing that he had suffered a collapsed lung and claiming that he could ‘physically feel death’ as it was happening.
Last night took a turn for the worse. Ever actually get so close that you can physically feel death? He’s a dick. The good news is, it’s fixable and these things happen. I’ll be back before you know it. Thanks for the support. pic.twitter.com/PvOOSi2ROK

As Newsweek reports:
The Louder With Crowder host shared on his Instagram feed on July 1 that he was undergoing an operation, which he later revealed to be pectus surgery…
He has since shared a series of photos showing his recovery in hospital. On July 9, he posted a scan of his chest and an image of his bandaged torso, as he wrote: “I kind of like my new bionic chest… #changemymind.”
Two days later, he shared a shirtless selfie and discussed his feelings about his appearance, revealing that he had undergone pectus surgery.
Pectus excavatum is a congenital disorder that causes the chest to have a sunken appearance and runs the risk of squeezing the lungs and heart because the breastbone and ribs curve inwards.
However it appears Crowder’s condition may have taken a turn for the worse, heartbreaking news for his many conservative fans .
