Lamar Odom has to learn to walk again and dump his addiction before Khloé Kardashian will take him back

Khloé Kardashian has revealed the extent of the damage done to Lamar Odom after his overdose, and it's so bad that he can't even walk yet.

Kardashian told Extra that while Odom is doing a lot better, he still has huge health challenges to overcome.

"He's definitely doing better, which is awesome. Every day is better, he's off of all machines that, he is alive on his own, and no machines are helping him, which is great, but he still has a lot of physical and cognitive therapy to go through, so it's a long road for him," she said.

Then she revealed the most shocking part: Odom is completely unable to walk.

"He will try to learn how to walk... so that is first… When he can support himself on his own, or physically try to walk better on his own or at least with an assistance, with, like, a walker, then he will probably leave the hospital and do a lot of cognitive and mental strengthening.

"It's gonna be a long long time, every day is different, some days he's really strong and some days he's weaker than the day before cause it's mentally draining, I'm sure, on him."

Kardashian later told Entertainment Tonight that Odom's health issues and addiction recovery trumps any thought of a romantic reconciliation, despite having canceled their divorce.

"Even if he was 100 percent better, he has a lot of other issues he has to deal with, I think, before taking on any relationship," she said. "I wish people understood that's not in our thought process right now. There are too many other important things, too many medical things. It's not even in our brains thinking about us as a couple or having a relationship right now."
