'Storage Wars' Star Dan Dotson

Reality Cameras Rolling

During Aneurysm Surgery

6/21/2014 12:46 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0621-dan-dotson-tmz-02The double brain aneurysm emergency that almost killed "Storage Wars" star Dan Dotson has been chronicled for all to see ... we're told producers actually filmed the scary surgery.

Laura Dotson tells TMZ ... producers rushed to the hospital to film the procedure-- and it will more than likely be featured on Season 6.

We're told Dan's blood pressure has returned to normal levels ... and he suffered  no paralysis ... good news, because doctors feared partial facial paralysis.

As we previously reported, the surgery was a success -- and even though Dotson is doing better than expected, his hospital stay will be long.

Wow, talk about fame whores, yet they'll probably spin it to be a human interest piece.

Did anybody stop and think that maybe Mr. Dodson wouldn't want to be filmed n that condition ? It's hard to believe his wife agreed to it.

Stop bashing these people! Every "reality" star films private moments like giving birth, weddings, and ER/doctor visits. They have been on the show since Day 1 and they are entitled to film their private lives. I stopped watching because all the new ppl changed the chemistry of the show and I lost interest. Thank God he suffered no paralysis my brother is permanently disabled from an aneurism 5 years ago it's nothing to joke about. Wishing you a speedy recovery Dan!

What is that hospital thinking????? There are so many things wrong with them allowing a 'reality' show to film there.

We need to know which hospital it is so we can avoid it at all costs.
