Wrestling legend Kamala just posted a video message online from his hospital bed, claiming one of his legs has been surgically removed ... but the Ugandan Giant insists, "I'm blessed. I'm alive."

According to reports, the amputation was a medically necessary procedure due to complications from high blood pressure and diabetes.

IT SEEMS HE WILL NEVER WRESTLE IN THE SQUARED CIRCLE AGAIN, IF HE LOST HIS LEG.SO, THE LAST TIME HE WRESTLED IN THE WWE WAS IN 2005 OR 2006 AGAINST RANDY ORTON. I WATCHED THAT. I WAS SHOCKED TO SEE KAMALA BACK IN THE WWE. GOOD LUCK TO KAMALA.WHEN WILL HE BE INDUCTED IN THE WWE HALL OF FAME?

You inspire me, I to have Diabetes and High Blod Pressure, and so does my 10 year old daughter. I wish the best for you and your family, I have been a fan of yours for years since your WWE days, and have followed you even after you left, You always amazed me that you never had any quit in you and still to this day have the strength to see the positive in life, We are all blessed, some with unfortunate cir****tances, but that is what keeps us strong. Continue to be strong and provide faith for others that have some of the same cir****tances we share. I hope you get to read this, and I am glad you got to spend time with your son.
