Lamar Odom is recovering faster than we thought. The former NBA player's  kidneys have improved so much over the last few days that he's been taken off dialysis and won’t need a kidney transplant after all.

Sources tell TMZ that the 35-year-old star's kidneys have recovered so well that he's been moved out of the ICU where he was receiving daily dialysis in a private room.

Like we earlier reported, Lamar’s kidneys were the biggest hurdle for the former LA Lakers player. Only days before he was taken off dialysis, doctors feared that he would have to undergo a kidney transplant in order to save his life. Doctors are reportedly very surprised that his kidneys have made such a drastic improvement so quickly.

"A healthy person like Lamar should regain function normal kidney function and get off dialysis, so he won’t be on dialysis for the rest of his life,” top urologist Dr. S. Adam Ramin of the Urology Cancer Specialists in Los Angeles tells Hollywood Life .

Nevertheless his wife, Khloe Kardashian and the rest of his loved ones have been so worried about Lamar. Rob Kardashian, like most fans, even offered to donate one of his kidneys to Lamar if things came to that. Lamar has also been struggling with his motor skills after reportedly  suffering 12 strokes while in the hospital.

According to a report, Lamar continues to drastically improve and is getting stronger and now  walking with help. He’s also now making his own medical decisions. This is huge considering Lamar was once in a coma after being  unresponsive on October 13 in a Nevada brothel after an alleged drug overdose.
