Was Billy Brown hospitalized in the past?
Over the past few years, Brown was in and out of the hospital and was told by medical personnel that high altitude isn't helping him.
Doctors advised the 68-year-old that the higher he is from sea level, the harder it is for the Alaskan Bush People patriarch to breathe.
Nonetheless, he defied doctor's orders and continued to live on the mountains with his family.
After returning home from one particular hospital visit, Brown told his large family that he was having heart problems.
Because he had been having a hard time breathing, he had always assumed it was his lungs – but the diagnosis from his last emergency scare pinpointed the problem being a serious problem with his heart.
In heartbreaking scenes on the reality show, Brown's wife Ami told their adult kids that their father wasn’t going to get better.
What illness was Billy Brown suffering from at the time?
Prior to his death, Brown was suffering from respiratory problems, kidney issues and seizures.
Brown underwent surgery in September 2019.
His health issues were revealed by son Bear, who let fans know what he was going through.
“Hey, everybody! We’ve been going through some major medical issues with my dad,” Bear captioned his Instagram post on September 15, 2019.
“He got out of surgery yesterday, but it looks like he’s going to be needing more [tests]! Thanks, everybody for sticking with my family and for all y’all guys’ support! God bless!”
