An Australian explorer who collapsed while climbing Mount Everest has revealed the terrible injuries that almost cost him his life.
Gilian Lee, a Canberra official, rose to Mount Everest at 7500 meters when he suddenly collapsed and came unconscious after complaining about chest pain.
There is little information about how he was rescued, but there was a yak and a team of Tibetan alpine specialists involved in the repair work on the mountain.
Lee said on Twitter that he said & # 39; my body has fared with liver problems & # 39; while he is recovering in a hospital in Kathmandu.

Lee is an IT specialist who describes himself as an & # 39; average person pursuing a long-term dream & # 39; to climb the 14 highest peaks in the world without the help of oxygen or drugs.
He said on his personal blog that it had been a goal for him since he left college.
& # 39; Instead of dreaming about it, I started trying to achieve this mountain climbing challenge & # 39 ;, wrote Lee on his blog.
& # 39; Maybe I will succeed, maybe not, but it will be fun and painful to pursue this. & # 39;
Lee went to Twitter on May 21 and said he had severe chest pain after climbing 7016 meters on Mount Everest. He was silent for 10 days until he made a message with the message & # 39; I live & # 39 ;. He is currently recovering in a hospital in Kathmandu
Lee posted on Twitter on May 18 that his health went from & # 39; good to bad & # 39; was gone when he was 7016 meters up the mountain.
& # 39; Chest hacking mucus cough will be a killer. Salt gargling and ginger tea, & said Lee on Twitter.
Three days later, Lee said his condition was only getting worse.
& # 39; Rough night at C1 due to persistent breast infection. & # 39;
His Twitter account was silent for ten days until he informed his followers of his situation on Thursday evening.
& # 39; I live. Something went wrong at the top after C2. & # 39;
& # 39; In the hospital. Surprisingly, mother is here, which is good for getting medical advice.
& # 39; No telephone and visual damage, what happened. Rest out. & # 39;
On average, five climbers die each year on the icy, narrow, low-oxygen paths to the 8848 meter (29,029 feet) peak (picture of the magnitude of the crowds at the summit of the Everest.) This season 11 people died on the treacherous slopes where mountaineers sometimes stood in line for hours for their turn
On average, five climbers die each year on the icy, narrow, low-oxygen paths to the peak of 8848 meters (29,029 feet).
This season 11 people died on the treacherous slopes where climbers sometimes stood in line for hours before their turn at the top.
Nine climbers died on the Nepal side of the Everest and two on the Tibet side.
The ridge of the Everest summit was hidden by more than 200 climbers on 22 May when it was reopened after bad weather.
Teams waited hours for temperatures below freezing to reach the top and then descend.
Waiting increased the risk of freezing, fatal altitude sickness and simple exhaustion due to depleted oxygen levels.
Some veterans say that too many of the new wave mountaineers are not well prepared for what remains an important test of mind and body. Others have called for a reduction in the number of climbing permits, or harder standards for guides (pictured, climbers walk past a corpse on Everest)
The traffic jam in the Everest death zone has been blamed for at least four deaths this year.
Some veterans say that too many of the new wave mountaineers are not well prepared for what remains an important test of mind and body.
Others have called for a reduction in the number of climbing permits, or stricter standards for guides.
