Andrew Johns' health condition finally revealed


//

Andrew Johns says he has finally been given clarity about the health scare that rocked him late last year.

Johns, 44, collapsed in a north coast cafe while on holidays in December and later revealed that he had been suffering seizures for several years.

The rugby league Immortal has been seeking answers about his health problems and now knows what he is dealing with.

“I’ve got a mild form of epilepsy and it’s a huge relief to find that out,” Johns told Danny Weidler, for his Sun Herald column.

“It was not knowing that was the worst. They say that if I take my medication I should be fine. It’s a huge relief.”

Johns said that he had received support from key figures and that he was aiming to live a normal life, with some basic precautions.

“Professor Chris Levi from Newcastle went above and beyond ... Wally Lewis helped me through it ... family and friends," Johns said.

"I can live a normal life but I just need to watch myself. If I go surfing I shouldn’t go alone ... things like that are key.”

Johns is set to go into further detail about his health battle in a special interview on Sunday night: speaking to his brother, Matty Johns, on FOX Sports.

“Anywhere I go everyone asks how Joey is going with his health,” Matty Johns told The Sunday Telegraph.

“So Nine agreed to let him come on and talk about it.”
