Michel Drucker spoke about his hospitalization on the set of “Touche pas à mon poste”. The host has undergone a risky heavy heart operation. He asked the doctors to “unplug him” if anything went wrong.
Michel Drucker was invited on the set of Cyril Hanouna in Touche pas à mon poste to talk about his book “It will go better tomorrow” in which he discusses his health problems. The host returned to this moment when he considered his death with the doctors.
“If it goes wrong, unplug me. No way I can wake up with disabilities he explains. With aphasia, a tremor, I will never be able to practice my profession again, so it is no longer worth it. You unplug me. Rather die than wake up without being able to practice my profession.“
Michel Drucker’s operation was indeed very risky: “I had to change a valve, do a triple bypass, unblock my leg, watch for the onset of stroke, and I was told: ‘We will not know if you only have after-effects when you wake up.“
The host was convinced that he was not going to get by, he had even summoned his bosses from France Televisions to “say goodbye” to them. “I told them: ‘What awaits me on the operating table tomorrow is so complicated that, even if I come back, I will be diminished so I will say goodbye to this job’“.
