Bam Margera landed in the hospital shortly after starting his third stint in rehab … but he’s assured fans he’ll be just fine.
The “Jackass” star was hospitalized Wednesday to treat what he says is edema … swelling in the body caused by blood vessels leaking fluid into the tissue. Bam wrote in a since-deleted Instagram post that he was in the hospital for only a few hours to treat “either reaction to new medicine or detoxing from i guess a bit of alchohol [sic].” Bam’s already back in rehab.
TMZ broke the story … sources close to Bam told us he put himself back on the road to recovery last week when he voluntarily entered a new rehab facility. He had been at an L.A. bar the night before checking into rehab. He had recently bailed on a treatment facility … the second time he’s done so this month.
As we first reported … bizarre behavior at an airport, an intense session with Dr. Phil and a confrontation with cops really had Bam’s family worried sick. Seems staying on the straight and narrow is now really his main objective.
