Sinbads' fans are kept updated through his official website since his ischemic stroke in 2020. The life-threatening stroke resulted from a blood clot that traveled from his heart to his brain. Detailing his condition, his family revealed that once the surgery was done, with the promising prognosis, he moved and talked but with some weakness. However, another blood clot formed, half the size of the first the next day.

The website explains how the actor was shifted to Cedar Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles for his surgery which was more complicated than his first surgery. The doctors had to perform a craniotomy to reduce the swelling in his brain they indicated and also to help relieve the pressure. It was during the surgery, a bleed was discovered by the surgeon which led them to decide on placing him on a ventilator and put him in a medically induced coma.

Unfortunately, it took months for him to wean off the ventilation but he was eventually able to speak or open his eyes. He was later taken for intense therapy and he has been bravely fighting to survive and get through his condition. The news of his attempt in learning to walk again has brought hope to his family and fans.

"Every outpouring of love and the memories of how he has touched all of you have not gone unheard, unseen, or unfelt. Thank you. You have lifted his spirits along the way and inspired the entire family," the website concludes. Sinbads' fans worldwide await his comeback wishing him the best on his road to recovery.
