Sinbad suffered from an ischemic stroke back in 2020. The stroke was caused by a blood clot in his brain that traveled from his heart. A thrombectomy was necessary in order to remove the clot. In total, two clots were removed. Next, a craniotomy was needed in order to “reduce brain swelling”. Finally, he was induced into a coma.
According to his family, it took several weeks before Sinbad was responsive. He gradually moved from ventilator to intense therapy. He worked towards getting sent home in July 2021 by enrolling in the California Rehabilitation Institute in May of 2021.

The family is accepting donations on his website. Gifts will go to the Adkins Trust to help support him on his healing journey as he continues to fight for his health back. They also say that the prayers from fans have not gone unnoticed or unappreciated. Sinbad says he will not stop until he walks on stage again.
