Lamar Odom In Need of a Kidney Transplant.

Lamar Odom, who remains hospitalized after being found unconscious on Oct. 13, has multiple medical hurdles to overcome in his ongoing journey toward recovery, multiple sources reveal to Us Weekly exclusively -- and they're serious issues.

A source close to the situation tells Us that the former NBA player, 35, is "definitely" in need of a kidney transplant. As reported by TMZ this past weekend, Odom has been suffering from major kidney failure and is currently on dialysis.

The source tells Us that Odom has good and bad moments daily, and showed some progress. "He can say a few words," the insider tells Us of Odom, who has yet to speak in full sentences. "He's doing a tiny bit better, but he has a very long road back to full recovery -- if that."
Another source tells Us that Odom's brain injury is currently "of the most concern" for his famous in-laws, who, like Khloe, rushed to be by his side at Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas when he was initially hospitalized.

The damage to Odom's brain would have been caused by the reported dozen strokes he suffered when he was found unconscious and transported to the hospital in critical condition. "That's the most serious thing he's dealing with," the second insider adds to Us. Both sources tellUs that the full extent of damage done to Odom's body, brain included, will remain unknown for a while.
