Sick since December 2020, former journalist Henri Sannier gave his news in a local newspaper this Thursday, July 21. The former historic commentator of the Tour de France, who has regained the use of his legs, notably revealed that he must regularly undergo an ordeal to heal himself.

Henry Sannier keep fighting. Since December 2020, the former host of Antenne 2 fight against neuropathy. A disease that forced him to stay in a wheelchair all this time. But this Thursday, July 21, the one who is also mayor of the commune of Eaucourt-sur-Somme, agreed to give his news to our colleagues from the Journal d’Abbeville and Ponthieu Marquenterre, revealing in particular to be able to walk again.

In 2020, Henri Sannier was victim of a rather serious bicycle accidentwhich occurred in the Baie de Somme, near the village of which he has been the city councilor since 1977. A car had run into him. The former Tour de France commentator then lost the use of his legs and hands.2 months later”, due to an illness whose link with the accident is still difficult to determine. “As I had during this time a vaccine against the flu, no one can tell me how I caught this virus”explained in particular Henri Sannier.

Henri Sannier: “For four hours, they filter my blood”

I first went to the University Hospital of Amiens where I was treated for Guillain-Barré syndrome. But the doctors who thought it was not this syndrome directed me to the Pitié-Salpêtrière hospital in Paris”continued the journalist. There, he regularly receives treatment: plasmapheresis. “For four hours, they filter my blood to renew my plasma. My blood has been filtered 17 times. I continue to return to Paris every six weeks to perform plasmapheresis. I was lucky to have great teams around me”he indicated.

But the click that allowed him to walk again came about a month ago. As he explained to our colleagues, he often dreamed of regaining the use of his legs. Until one night where he is managed to get up to get medicine. “I think I realized I could do it again.”said Henri Sannier, who is now working to regain full use of his hands. At the same time, he continues his leg rehabilitation by regularly practicing the exercise bike.
