Popular Twitch streamer and GTA RP star Buddha has given fans another tentative health update after undergoing brain surgery in November 2022.

Buddha is a prominent Twitch streamer with over 820,000 followers on the broadcasting platform. Best known for his GTA roleplaying streams, Buddha has accrued a large and supportive fanbase over the years.

However, his viewers were shocked when the streamer revealed that doctors had discovered a bleed on the left side of his brain on November 13, explaining that he’d have to undergo surgery to fix the issue.

Luckily, Buddha came out on the other side just fine and was discharged from the hospital a few days later. He was prescribed anti-seizure medication and was told he’d have to return to the hospital at a later date for a CT scan.

“This was one of the scariest things I’ve ever experienced,” the streamer said of the matter. “Thank you for all the kind words and love, it means a lot and helps me push through. [I] will update here when I can.”

Buddha had to undergo another surgery later that month to clean out an incision that doctors had made during the first operation. “Really hoping after this I can just start bouncing back and getting back to normal,” he wrote.
